Yes! The world's largest pro audio end-user event returns to New York in October 2018, for the 145th International AES Convention. Building on successes in New York in 2017 and LA in 2016, the Exhibition floor is poised for outstanding end-user contact.

Drawing additional attendees into the Exhibition hall, the exhibit-floor stages of the Live Sound Expo and the Project Studio Expo are proven to increase exhibits area traffic. In addition, new stages and events are being launched to further draw attendees to the Exhibition hall - the Broadcast Audio Expo and Broadway Sound Expo, a new software@aes Pavilion, an Audio 4 VR Pavilion, and a series of Mix with the Masters Mixing Workshops.

High visibility and high performance sponsorship opportunities are available for the Convention, track sessions and the Exhibits-area events. These sponsorships offer unparalleled advertising and branding benefits.

You can now book your hotel on our housing website. We have negotiated group rates at many of the hotels surrounding the convention center.

Our app for AES New York 2018 is still being finalized, but yes - we'll definitely have one!
