Salon Son & Image / Montreal Audio Show Back On!

The short story: the original Montreal show organizers, Michel Plante and Sarah Tremblay, along with industry members have created a non-profit organization and have taken over the renamed Montréal Salon Audio / Audio Fest which is back on schedule, opening as planned on March 18th. Here's the press release:
Montreal, March 9th 2016

Yesterday, it was announced by the new organizers, Chester Group, that they were giving up on the 29th edition of the Montreal Audio Show. This created a real tsunami amongst the industry.

We dedicated 10 years of our career to making this show a reference in the industry. We just could not accept that this magical event would disappear.

Without a minute of hesitation, the former owners of the show, along with a group of industry members, have decided to form a new non-profit organization and maintain the show to be run next week, from the 18th to the 20th of March. After this edition of the show, a board of directors will be elected in order to plan the future of this iconic event.

Exceptionally this year, the admission for the public will be FREE as there will be a limited amount of exhibitors, but the quality of the presentation will be the same as usual. The rate for the exhibitors has been drastically reduced, to make sure we attract as many as possible.

So, we invite everyone to come and join us to celebrate this new Montreal Audio Fest.

I'd like to wish the old/new organizers the best of luck!

I will be there on Friday. The new (old) organizers are real audio buffs. There is still some hope for the future of hifi in my home town.
