This news just hit my desk: “Tampa, Florida—August 2018—The Florida Audio Expo is excited to announce its inaugural show. This show will be held on Friday February 8th through Sunday February 10th, 2019 at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Tampa Airport Westshore. ”
Our mission for creating the Florida Audio Expo was to bring a strong offering to the Southeast market with a fun atmosphere for enjoying music—we want to celebrate our lifestyle and support the industry in this region,” said Bart Andeer, founder of Resolution Acoustics and manager of the Expo’s daily operations. “We have been working this idea for a few years, but wanted to find the right venue available at the right time of year, and we believe we have achieved both for the 2019 show. We strongly encourage regional dealers and manufacturers from all over the US who are looking for a new option.”
This Embassy Suites was originally a Condo building so the rooms are acoustically isolated, according to the press release.
Let me think about this for a minute. Florida in February. Hmm. New Jersey in February. Ahem.
Additional benefits for attendees and exhibitors staying at the Embassy Suites include free airport shuttle, free breakfast, and free happy hour.
