AudioConLA High-End Show Announced for January 2022

It would appear that we’re getting another high-end audio show with AudioConLA but we’re wondering why now with 2 other shows already in the same area.

AudioConLA 2022

The COVID-19 pandemic was not kind to the trade show industry and things are slowly getting back to normal even with the Delta variant causing issues in some countries. Los Angeles County has reimposed an indoor mask mandate and we suspect neighboring Orange County can’t be too far behind. With everything going on and CES 2022 only a few weeks earlier, color us surprised to learn this afternoon that a new high-end audio show is happening in January 2022. We’re supporters of T.H.E. Show which was the first show to come back during the pandemic and it would appear that AudioConLA is happening as well.

The Los Angeles and Orange County Audio Society have announced the launch of AudioConLA, a world-class international high-end audio show organized under the direction of Sarah Tremblay and Michel Plante, the successful duo behind Montreal Audiofest and Toronto Audiofest

AudioConLA will also present two premiere music concerts to be held at the hotel’s exclusive 1200 seat tree-lined outdoor amphitheater, the home of the Newport Beach Jazz Festival. Headliners will include internationally renowned Anne Bisson on Friday evening and extraordinary Charlotte Cardin on Saturday evening.

AudioConLA will run from January 14 to 16, 2022, at the iconic Hyatt Regency Newport Beach, 1107 Jamboree, Newport Beach, CA.

We’re bullish on Sarah Tremblay and Michel Plante who have an excellent track record with the Canadian shows; who doesn’t love going to Montreal and standing in line at St. Viateur at 5 a.m.?

We’re less impressed by the Audio Society trying to make it impossible for T.H.E. Show to grow and flourish. Southern California already has the aforementioned show and CanJam SoCal so we’re wondering if this is guided by a genuine need for another show or politics.

Do manufacturers have the funds right now to do another show?

Hopefully there is room for all 3 shows to co-exist and bring more people into the fold.
