We are seriously considering this new online audio show:
https://thehifisummit.com/

Have you heard of it?  Will you be attending?

It would be helpful if they provided a list of exhibitors. Looks like you need to buy tickets even to see basic info.

Since this is online, things happen more quickly.  Still 4 weeks to go, and some potential exhibitors (like us) are still debating....

What does it cost to "exhibit"?

This event appears to bring together serious buyers and sellers... and not so much the tire kickers who won’t want to pay the entry fee.

Therefore,  the site may assure the exhibitor of potential interested customers while assuring the consumer of discounts on products.

I guess the risk to the exhibitors is that the consumers who log in aren’t interested in their products.  The risk to the consumer is that the product they want to buy isn’t being offered at a discount.

Is this the next big thing for audio, I doubt it... but then I didn’t think massdrop would get so big...but if the exhibitor price is reasonable, it could be worth a try.

There is a form to request a phone conference for exhibitors on the site, and also this address for questions:
exhibit@thehifisummit.com

If you fill out the form, they’ll send you a PDF that has pricing.

Yes, but in case other potential exhibitors see this....

You asked for people's thoughts on the cost, but if we ask you what it costs you won't tell us what it is because other exhibitors might find out?

What sort of game is this....  :shake:



Just started this new thread regarding The HiFi Summit (June 26th 2020):
https://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=170480.0


We are concerned about the cost.  We rarely attend trade shows.  The reason is low-to-no ROI.  This also can raise prices to compensate for the expense, and our focus is on our customers and the value we provide them.  Less overhead from advertising, trade shows, and the like means more for R&D, plus more breathing room to keep our prices the same (or lower).  Thoughts?

I bought a ticket and created an account. I don’t see any more info than I did before. I’ll keep poking around the website.

*Edit*

LOL, I guess I should have read the last sentence in the confirmation email:

“All accounts are pending until the start of the event when your account will become active. You will be able to access the site from that point forward.”

WE ARE IN !!

Talked to Joe, who you might know (50k subscribers), who runs the show, and we are a "go"!  This is his channel:

The cost is actually not that high.  I'm not at liberty to disclose the prices here, however.

At first, I didn’t know what the cost was. Now I know and can say “low thousands” (we were surprised), but don’t feel comfortable attaching a price sheet without Joe’s permission.  So, I asked for his permission.  I’ll let you know when I get his reply.  Thanks.

Joe said “....no, the price sheet is not for public consumption. If someone is interested, they can contact me.”

Today I registered for the show and started transferring the “data”. Hope to be done most of it by Monday.

We need to decide a few things.  Which products to focus on, for one.  Ideas welcome (:

There will be a few Cherry products up for grabs in a giveaway!!

Also, we need to decide on “show specials”....

HiFi Summit...gotta give it a try

Unfortunately, for now, "live" audio shows are on hold...and when people feel safe, I have no doubt they will be back.  In the mean time, Joe Mariano has a pretty clever idea to utilize "online access" and give manufacturers a way to promote their products and get their name out there.  And it is likely that the magazine guys will write about it which will give further publicity to the participants.

Do, I think it will work?  Hey, I'm the guy that thought Amazon was a fluke. 

I want to support Joe for trying something new and I want to support the manufacturers who need to expand their market and their customer base and hopefully get some orders.

So, I'm in, bought my ticket and I'm hoping for a great show.
