    So the only question that I have is who is running the new LA show and which one to go to next year..??[/QUOTE]

    This is the question all prior exhibitors will be asking themselves, too! The manufacturers I know who are on the East Coast will not be coming to two LA shows.

    Ok making progress

    Found the number to the LA folks and got the other side of the informacion'

    1) Marine who ran the THE Show Newport is running the LA Audio Show backed by the LA/OC audio society

    2) The venue is much bigger/better (their words not mine)

    3) The Dates make sense so that is why they are filling the old time slot THE Show newport gave up

    4) Management of THE Show Newport is only with two people on the contact page Joe and Maurice(scary!!)


    So from the finer details much too long to write it seems that the LA show will be the better show for manufacturers/dealers. THE Newport show doesnt have the staff that ran it prior so whether or not it will be similar experience will be entirely up to chance.

    Judging by the negotiations to stay at the Hotel Irvine and renew I would be weary of participating with THE Show especially on dates that conflict with RMAF. If you can attend Newport you can attend LA from an visitor perspective so that point is moot as to which venue to go to.

    a bigger venue won't make for a better show.

    Vendors as Ron said won't attend two. One will die of attrition unless dates are changed

    Seems the guy in Anaheim has nothing to go by except the name whereas the LA show has the staff from The Show at Irvine hence they think they will be the survivor

    Crazy thinking on both sides

    I remember going to the Stereophile Show at LAX in 1998......my first audio show and I really enjoyed it.

    let's hope for the best.

    I will miss the John Wayne airport and the relaxed space and neighborhood in Irvine. I was at a business meeting in late July and flew in and out of LAX. a train wreck I'd say. glad I won't need to leave the property.

    Very true, but if you have the people that made Newport successful and add the backing of the LA/OC Society with a pinch of non conflicting dates with RMAF = Audio Omlette.

    Hopefully the competition will be something positive for exhibitors and visitors alike.

    Not to mention LA is closer to my favorite hang out spots and family so if I dont make it out to Cyprus next year I would do that show

    We decided to go with the LA show due to the support of the LA/Orange county audio society as well as the people responsible for running last years Newport show. It looks like many vendors and manufacturers are also choosing this show as well if you look at the LA shows webpage and the amount of rooms that are already booked. We will be in room 214 on the second floor. I just looked at The Show Anaheim's site and it only looks like one room is booked. I will miss the show being in Irvine but extremely happy we were able to get in a much bigger room.
