AXPONA 2020 Runs Early Bird Pricing, Reveals Show Details


(January 21, 2020) With CES 2020 behind us, it’s time to turn our attention to the industry’s next big event: AXPONA! Once again, Audio Expo North America (AXPONA), is returning to its new digs at the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel and Convention Center located northwest of Chicago, Illinois. This marks the 11th anniversary of the event.

For 2020, AXPONA is slated to present more than 200 listening rooms jam-packed with a record number of exhibitors and products. That includes a brand new Ear Gear Experience slated to showcase headphones, cables, players, dedicated home listening systems, mobile device sound enhancers, and more, guided and organized by key personnel from Sennhiesier, ZMF, Astell & Kern, Schiit Audio, and Dan Clark Audio.

The Ear Gear Experience will feature Ear Gear Theater, Industry Talks, two different Networking Lounges, and a café. And show-goers are guaranteed to experience products from the likes of Schiit, Focal Naim North America, Audeze, Jerry Harvey Audio, HIFIMAN, Astell & Kern, and Lenbnrook. Of course, a host of other portable audio brands will be present as well.

In addition to listening rooms loaded with some of the best 2-channel audio gear on the planet, AXPONA will also offer access to a Record Fair, Master Class Theater, nightly live concerts, and much more.

Doors open to the public on Friday, April 17 at 10 am, closing Sunday, April 19 at 4 pm. If you’d like to save some cash, this is the absolute best time to take advantage of early bird pricing, as follows:

1 Day - $20 Early Bird, $25 in advance; $30 onsite
