Audio-Technica announces IABM membership

Audio-Technica has joined the International Association of Broadcast Manufacturers (IABM).

Becoming part of the IABM – the only international association representing the broadcast supply industry globally – will allow Audio-Technica to benefit from market research, intelligence from within the sector, and increased brand recognition, the manufacturer says.

Matthias Exner, Audio-Technica’s business development director EMEA for professional products, commented: “We’re pleased to have joined the membership ranks of IABM – I am absolutely convinced that the move will have a positive impact not only on Audio-Technica, but also our customers in the broadcast industry.

“By allowing us increased knowledge of the demands of the industry, we will be able to react more quickly and appropriately to develop products to meet customer requirements. And marketing benefits in terms of IABM support at exhibitions including IBC, CABSAT and NAB will ensure Audio-Technica a strong presence and opportunity to meet customers from Europe, the United States, Middle East and Far East at shows over the coming years.

"Broadcast is becoming an ever more important industry for Audio-Technica, and with new products arriving in 2014, this is an opportune time to become involved with an industry body as active as IABM.”
