AES returning to Paris for 140th Convention

The Audio Engineering Society has announced it will return to Paris, France, for the 140th International Convention, taking place 4 – 7 June 2016.

The Convention will aim to bring together leading audio engineers, producers, educators and more from around the world to present the latest in audio research, developments and technologies. Additionally, the four days of Tech Program events and three days of Manufacturer Exhibits and Project Studio Expo presentations promise to provide a diverse range of opportunities for attendees to learn from, and network with, the top names in the industry.

"We’re excited to return to Paris, one of the world’s great cities, to explore the latest in audio technology, best practices, and tools,” stated Bob Moses, AES executive director. “Manufacturers have been lobbying for us to bring our pro audio exhibition to this under-served region of Europe, and we’re imagining all kinds of fun things we can do in this fantastic city. 

"Our last few conventions in Europe have been very successful, and we think Paris will continue the upward trend. And the Paris convention/hotel community seems very eager to host us, so we are confident this will be a very successful show for the pro-audio community."

It has also been announced that the AES142 Convention will take place in Berlin, Germany, Spring 2017.

The AES140 Call for Papers announcement is due to be made in the coming months.
