ALTI-EXPO 2022 is over for 2022. Thank-you to our exhibitors, presenters, guests, and attendees for a great return to live events! Look for information on our 2023 event in Orlando, Florida
2 days (plus) of top notch technical presentations, research, product introductions, exhibitors and attendees from around the world, and, as always, quality networking with the people who matter.
ALTI doesn’t do video, or lighting, or massage chairs… ALTI is about professionals in the loudspeaker industry and the related signal chain. This is where you belong!
Refreshed. Renewed. Reflective of our industry and our heritage.
ALTI will honor the industry’s best at our annual ALMA Awards Banquet at ALTI-EXPO ’22
Details coming soon!
Speaker Builders Workshop premiered at ALTI-EXPO in 2019 and was a huge hit!
Our sponsors present a loudspeaker project from a ficticious customer, and then follow the process from setting specs, modeling, actual hands-on building of a loudspeaker, andend of line testing.
Students, new and experienced engineers enjoyed the event in 2019. Some new participants, and a fresh approach will make this a great experience.
BONUS! The 1 day course was $149 in 2019. This year, thanks to sponsorships, it is NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE for ALTI Members! Sign up NOW!
Warning concerning dubious and unsolicited offers:
Third-party companies often send various advertising e-mails to potential ALTI -EXPO ’22 exhibitors and attendees. In these e-mails, they either offer hotel accommodation or ask for details (addresses, company details, etc.) for company entries in lists. These e-mails give the false impression that the sender is associated with the ALTI. We would like to take this opportunity to again stress that we have no business relationships whatsoever with such companies and therefore ask that you check such offers/requests very carefully because they usually involve hidden costs. If you have any doubts, please feel free to contact us (e.g. in the case of requests from companies such as Expo Guide, Fair Guide, email lists, hotel accommodations, etc.). When in doubt, email email@example.com.
Excerpt By Joao Martins Editor of AudioXpress published April 28, 2022
ALTI Expo 2022
For this week, I had intended to write instead about an important upcoming in-person event that deserves attention from our audience and that also risks being squeezed by this trade-show rush and overlapping schedules. I’m talking about ALTI Expo 2022, the conference promoted by the Audio & Loudspeaker Technologies International (ALTI) Association, which is also right around the corner, set for June 5–6 at the South Point Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV.
Our readers might not be familiar with ALTI and much less with ALTI Expo, but that is perfectly normal considering the association used to be called ALMA, and changed the name in the year before the global pandemic – here is an article about those changes. Read the full audioXpress report available for a refresh of the previous ALTI Expo in 2019 – now seemingly distant events.
ALTI is the association with which audio manufacturers, developers, and all the technical folks who make audio products need to be connected. And since it moved away from CES, its excellent annual event now takes place just a few days before the InfoComm show in Las Vegas (Education, June 4-10 – Exhibits, June 8-10). What was not expected is that the Winter NAMM Show this year would take place in June as well. But it will (June 3-5). The full story is here but it’s important to note a few things. That show is only three days this year, and yes, the third day overlaps with ALTI Expo in Vegas, which means we only have two days to attend NAMM, and we will need to rush off to the South Point Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, where ALTI Expo takes place.
Time to plan how to attend this year’s ALTI Expo and Conference at the South Point Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV, June 5–6, just prior to InfoComm. Leave earlier from NAMM if you attend, it will be important.
ALTI continues to be the only international trade association dedicated to improving the design and manufacture of loudspeakers and related technologies. But its scope expanded to reflect the whole audio industry ecosystem. This means that its role is now even more crucial to the industry, and many industry folks who usually don’t even attend NAMM or InfoComm have a reason to be there. And reflecting the association’s expanded scope, this year’s keynote presentation will be delivered by Andrew Bellavia, Director of Market Development at Knowles Electronics, who will explain why the “golden age of audio” is happening now.
And yes, there’s many reasons to attend, including to support ALTI’s Incubator program for new companies and inventors; the Speaker Builders Workshop; and presentations by experts from Klippel, Listen, Composite Sound, Audio Precision, HEAD acoustics, NTi Audio, Parts Express, and many more. There will be also an interesting presentation on Supply Chain issues by Rosemary Coates and others, and ALTI is already working to identify the issues and explore solutions. To support the session content, ALTI is promoting a brief 10 question survey – available here https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/S3LZSVN. The results will be explored and discussed at ALTI-Expo. Survey results will also be available to all who participate in the survey.
So, please make an effort to support the association’s initiatives and plan to attend this year’s ALTI Expo and Conference at the South Point Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV, June 5–6, just prior to the InfoComm Show. The South Point hotel still offers affordable accommodation for those attending, so everyone can just focus on the event.
ALTI Expo 2022 offers two days of outstanding technical and business content. There are many opportunities for networking and spending quality time with exhibitors and attendees, and a great focus on getting business done! There’s even a banquet and the celebration once again of the prestigious ALMA Awards, highlighting outstanding products, people, and technologies in the audio industry (yes the awards remain connected to the original name, in respect to all those who received one in the past — and also because ALMA is a great name for an award!)
ALTI’s ALMA Awards honor the Association’s heritage as well as excellence and achievement with five award categories: Lifetime Achievement, Technology Achievement, Industry Contribution, Innovation Award, and ALTI Member Award.
audioXpress and Voice Coil magazines are the official media partners for ALTI Expo and will be directly supporting the ALMA Awards once again. Stay tuned for more information, coming soon. More information about ALTI Expo 2022 is available here: https://altiassoc.org/alti-expo-22/
