AXPONA 2021 Postponed to April 2022

The Delta variant has caused havoc with CEDIA 2021 and now postponed AXPONA to April 2022 as cases are spiking in the Midwest and folks can’t travel.

AXPONA Show

Raise your hand if you’re shocked. AXPONA 2021 has been officially postponed and rescheduled to April 22-24, 2022.

If you’ve been following our coverage of CEDIA 2021 which is scheduled to take place next week in Indianapolis, more than 40 key exhibitors have already cancelled, so the writing was on the wall for AXPONA.

What this means for CanJam SoCal or RMAF 2021 remains to be seen but we can’t imagine that the same companies pulling out of AXPONA are not going to cancel their participation in both of those shows as well. It’s hard to be optimistic with the rising Delta variant cases and travel bans that still exist.

Prepare for an avalanche of new product announcements, videos, and podcasts to keep you informed about the 200+ products coming down the pike in Q4 2021.

From the press release:

Dear AXPONA Community,

AXPONA will be rescheduled from October 29-31, 2021 until April 22-24, 2022.

Throughout this spring and early summer, enthusiasm for AXPONA in October was sky high. Attendees were buying tickets, exhibitors were making plans and the media were requesting their press passes. But in recent weeks Covid cases in the US, due largely to the Delta variant, have been spiking again which has adversely impacted consumer travel behavior and corporate travel decisions.

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.

Lastly, we support other industry gatherings that go ahead this fall as planned. We believe business and consumer events can be successfully held during these times so long as responsible health and safety measures are implemented and adhered to. In fact, we look forward to seeing many of you at some of these upcoming events soon.

We will be in touch with all AXPONA participants in the days and weeks ahead about the April show. If you have immediate questions, please feel free to reach out to us. Ticket holders may call or send questions to Liz Smith and exhibitors and sponsors may call or send questions to Mark Freed.

Until then, stay safe and healthy and immersed in great sounding music!

Sincerely,

Liz Miller Smith / Mark Freed
Event Director / VP of Sales
