This is what the oraganizrs have to say about Montreal and the exhibitors - meanwhile I have it through the grapevine that there's a Facebook page "Montreal Audio Festival" soon to be live!
Stay tuned - the fun goes on forever

Chester Group to defer it’s Salon Son & Image / Montreal Audio Show

It is with considerable sadness that we have to inform you that it has been decided to defer this year’s Salon Son & Image Show/Montreal Audio Show due to take place at the Bonaventure Hotel on the 18 – 20 March 2016.

The deciding factor has been market support, with a substantial drop in companies wanting to support this long established event.

All shows of this type rely 100% on commercial support from Exhibitors, and as much as we would enjoy doing so, we cannot force companies to support a show, they have to make their own commercial decisions.

We do understand that this will come as a considerable disappointment and we know that the previous organisers also did all they could to keep the show going, but the decline in Exhibitor support had been gradual but erosive.

Our overriding concern will always be to ensure great value for money for our Exhibitors and just as importantly our show visitors, and morally we simply could not continue.

However, and to clarify, this show is not being cancelled, and will now benefit from a complete overhaul to reflect market changes.

Dates, Venue, Location, Content etc. are all being worked on right now, and no time will be lost to ensure the shows continuation and revitalisation.

We will deal with all current ticket holders this week to arrange refunds, please allow a few days for us to implement this.

Pour publication immédiate



Montréal, le 9 mars 2016



Nous avons appris hier avec consternation l'annulation de la 29e édition du Salon Son & Image. Cette annonce, faite par les nouveaux propriétaires du SSI, le Chester Group d'Angleterre, qui survient à moins de deux semaines avant la tenue de l'évènement a causé dans l'Industrie au complet, un véritable tsunami.



Ayant investi dix années de notre vie professionnelle à faire de cet événement une référence dans l'Industrie, cette situation nous désole au plus haut point et nous ne pouvions tout simplement pas accepter de voir disparaître cet événement si apprécié de tous.



Moins d'une heure après l'annonce, les anciens propriétaires du SSI ainsi que plusieurs membres de l'industrie, ont formé une organisation sans but lucratif et créé le Salon Audio de Montréal afin de s'assurer que l'évènement tant attendu ait lieu tel que prévu la semaine prochaine, du 18 au 20 mars 2016, à l'Hôtel Bonaventure.



Exceptionnellement pour cette édition, -l'admission sera gratuite pour les visiteurs, car il y aura moins d'exposants, mais la qualité des présentations sera identique aux années passées. Les tarifs pour les exposants ont été grandement réduits, afin de retenir un maximum d'entre eux.



Alors voilà, vous êtes tous invités à vous joindre à nous pour venir célébrer la naissance du Salon Audio de Montréal.


For immediate 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.

Now, that's what I call leadership. Well done to the volunteers and the good folks at Plurison that are making it possible.
