Pacific Audio Fest 2021
A great weekend of fine audio in the magnificent Pacific Northwest.

successfully brought the Capital Audiofest (CAF) to the forefront. CAF is the East Coast's largest and longest running consumer high-end audio show. The Pacific Audio Fest 2021 is limited to 100 showroom, so you need to act fast to reserve your
March 4, 2021 Update From The Pacific Audio Fest
This just in from PAF's Hinkley: Covid has obviously thrown more wrenches into the audio show schedule. Considering the constantly changing dates of some shows this year we want to assure everyone that if we cannot safely hold the Pacific Audio Fest on our scheduled dates (July 30-Aug. 1 2021) then we will simply refund all deposits and plan on similar dates for 2022. We will not change our dates in 2021 because doing so would intrude on the long established show dates of RMAF and Capitol Audio Fest, and our belief and policy is that we are all in this together.
Our firm policy is 100% refunds in case of a Covid
cancellation and vendors will have first right of refusal in 2022 on the rooms they reserved. We strongly feel this is the only way to deal responsibly with everybody in the audio community.
At this time it looks like we will have a good shot at holding the show as planned, we will make an announcement around May 1 to confirm the situation. That should give everyone enough time to adjust their plans if need be. Lets hope that the progress of the last month continues and we can get close to normal, or the new normal, by the end of July. Thanks to everyone who has been so supportive, the Pacific Audio Fest will be a great and fun show for everybody.

More About The Pacific Audio Fest
According to the Pacific Audio Fest (PAF), "No, we are not just another audio show, we are positioned to be the premiere west coast audio show! The Pacific Audio Fest (PAF) is not looking to be the largest audio show, but want to be your show of choice on the west coast. Lou Hinkley and Gary Gill have both been in the audio business for quite a while. Together we will be applying everything we know to make this the yearly
go-to audio event – created by exhibitors for exhibitors. PAF knows what exhibitors are looking for, and are always available and will do everything possible to make this the premier experience for every exhibitor. By doing that, we are convinced that PAF will also be a great show for all attendees."
"One of the guiding principles for this show will be to keep the scale manageable for everyone. We envision about
80 to 100 rooms as optimal for this type of consumer audio show, and will ensure that the show will not expand far beyond that. Already the enthusiasm for this show looks like we may sell out the very first year. Once we hit our desired capacity, we will have a
vendors' waiting list on a first-come, first-served basis, and a firm 'grandfather' policy."
"By strategically locating PAF in Seattle," continues PAF, "we anticipate vendors and attendees from not only the United States, but also Canada and Asia. The dates we have planned also allow you to visit Seattle and its surrounding natural beauty by rail. The Doubletree/Hilton is located within walking distance of the Seattle Airport, and has over 800 sleeping rooms. Better yet, the standard PAF exhibit rooms are the largest of any audio
