Sound Summit: Chicago

Sound Summit: Chicago will be held from 3pm to 8pm at the Cinespace Chicago Film Studios Ballroom on 13 May 2015, hosted by DPA Microphones, Lectrosonics and Sound Devices.

The event, the second of many planned informal mixing and discussion events for the US audio community, will feature short informational presentations from each of the manufacturers taking place from 4:30pm to 5:30pm, followed by food, refreshments and social time. Presentations by location sound practitioners will take place from 6:30pm to 7:30pm.

Representatives from all three companies will be available throughout the event to discuss the best practices for utilising all three brands during a production.

“Following the open dialogue we had at our first event in Los Angeles, we recognise how valuable the Sound Summits are to our sound mixing user base and were inspired to improve and develop new products for, and communications to, the industry,” said Christian Poulsen, CEO of DPA Microphones. “We’re very much looking forward to this Chicago event, as well as future Sound Summits, such as the one planned for Atlanta later this year. We’re confident each one will only grow larger and more popular.”

“We’re extremely excited to host the second Sound Summit event because it allows us to share ideas and learn from the community in a relaxed setting,” commented Karl Winkler, director of business development at Lectrosonics. “We anticipate the Chicago event to be very valuable and to be able to host future events in other large metropolitan areas in the coming year.”

“It’s always great to have the opportunity to get together with our users and peers to discuss and learn more about the current trends in sound mixing,” remarked Paul Isaacs, vice president of marketing and product design at Sound Devices. “The LA event exceeded our expectations and we can’t wait to meet with our current and potential customers from in and around Chicago.”
