That’s right folks, Axpona has pulled the plug on their October 29-31, 2021 dates and moved them to April 22-24, 2022. We don’t have to ask why.
From the press release:
Exhibitors and attendees travel to AXPONA from throughout the United States and from more than 40 other countries. Over the last few weeks, citing concerns over personal health, the unpredictability of international travel restrictions and reinstated companywide travel bans, many community members have told us they are unwilling or unable to commit to AXPONA in October.
So we have worked with our Renaissance Schaumburg venue partner to return AXPONA to its traditional spring timeframe in 2022, April 22–24, and we secured future dates from April 14-16, 2023 and April 12-14, 2024. We look forward to full participation in April with over 200 listening rooms, the Ear Gear Experience, Record Fair, Expo Hall, live concerts, networking events and so much more fun for audio gear buyers and sellers from all over the world to safely enjoy.
There you have it.
Interestingly, I also received an email from RMAF last week with this message as the opener: RMAF 2021 is a go!
I have to admit that as the days go by and the news gets worse, I’m beginning to take a hard look at attending any shows this year. Clearly doing so presents health a risk, yes I’m vaccinated, so I really have to wonder if I want to take that risk to attend a hifi show.
Time will tell.
