Inaugural Toronto AES Expo19 Brings Out Top Brands & Professionals

On Wednesday, June 19, the Toronto chapter of the Audio Engineering Society (AES) hosted its first-ever Toronto AES Expo19 at the CBC Broadcasting Centre.

The free, focused-attendance gear exhibition featured the AES Networking Lounge zone and hundreds of brands were showcased on the exhibit floor where high-quality attendees from all sectors of the pro audio industry could check out and ask questions about the latest products.

Among the exhibiting companies were Adamson Systems Engineering, HHB Canada, Erikson Audio, Shure, GerrAudio Distribution, Solotech, Techni+Contact, Lectrosonics, Flux::, and more. For a full list of exhibitors and sponsors, go to www.torontoaes.org/toronto-aes-expo19.

Another popular feature of the show was the career centre, hosted by Professional Sound magazine, where attendees could get leads on available pro audio jobs from across Canada. As well, Canadian loudspeaker manufacturer Adamson Systems Engineering held a career fair. James Oliver, Adamson’s Director Of Marketing and Sales, presented an overview on the company and covered the career opportunities available with the rapidly-growing industry leader.

The exhibition floor was steadily busy throughout the eight hours of the event and many exhibitors Professional Sound chatted with were very enthusiastic about the turnout and the professional quality of attendees.

Also, AES Toronto hosted ongoing live interviews with members via its Facebook page, which you can view below.
