More Info About The Florida Audio Expo 2020
"Building on the success of last year's Expo, we have increased our exhibitor count by 60% and are now officially sold out," said Bart Andeer, co-founder and operations manager of the Florida Audio Expo. "We are proud to welcome back many returning exhibitors, but also thrilled to welcome new brands, including leading headphone manufacturers and several international audio brands. We believe we have created a recipe for success with our Expo the right mix of beautiful weather and incredible sounds from fantastic brands from all over the world. The Florida Audio Expo is a great start to the audio-show season, and we encourage music lovers and audiophiles from across the country to experience what we have to offer."

 

 

Last year is was said that "Florida hasn't had an audio show in a good number of years. We look forward to bringing our speakers and electronics to this culture-rich area of music enthusiasts," said Bill Dudleston, founder of Legacy Audio.

"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 USA who are looking for a new option."

 

 

The Florida Audio Expo 2020 indeed provided access to incredible sounds, as well as loads of area attractions to enjoy! Only a five-minute drive from the Tampa International Airport, the Embassy Suites are close to such local attractions as Busch Gardens, and just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World and Universal Studios. Additional benefits for attendees and exhibitors staying at the Embassy Suites include free airport shuttle, free breakfast, and free happy hour.

The Embassy Suites, originally built as condominiums, offers a luxury feel and the living suites are acoustically isolated one of the key reasons this venue was selected. The audio rooms, Marketplace, and headphone/personal audio demo suites will all feature display areas that include a separate bedroom and kitchen, offering exhibitors the added benefit of a multi-purpose room as an interesting and affordable space.
