AXPONA Moves 2020 Expo from April to November

Organizers of the Audio Expo North America (a.k.a. AXPONA) have announced that the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center Hotel in metro Chicago is the show’s new permanent home and that in 2020 the three-day show will move from its usual mid-April time frame to late October/early November.

"We've been listening to our customers and industry leaders for years and have been strongly advised to move AXPONA's dates further away from the Munich High-End show in May and to add a separate day exclusively for trade professionals and the press,” said Liz Miller, VP and event director for the expo.

“We were thrilled with the positive feedback we received regarding our new Schaumburg home in 2018. The first-class venue in the fall timeframe, coupled with a special day for trade professionals, will prove to be a huge win for the global audio industry and AXPONA for years to come."

The expo will be held April 12-14 in 2019 and October 29-November 1 in 2020.

Show organizers said moving AXPONA to November in 2020 will serve the audio industry by better positioning the show for fourth-quarter product launches.

The 2020 Trade & Press Day will enable dealers, distributors, manufacturers, and member of the press to get a head start on exploring expo exhibits before it opens to the public.
