(January 2, 2024) The Florida International Audio Expo opens its doors in just 14 days! This, the event's 5th annual showing, is set to take place Friday through Sunday, February 16–18, at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Tampa Airport Westshore Hotel. While on-site hotel reservations during the event are booked, tickets are still available. So, if you plan on attending, now's a great time to lockdown nearby accommodations and get your tickets! And, if you're a student, read on because you might be able to invite a friend or family member to join you for free!
The show will have 12 floors housing 80-plus audio systems from the industry’s most coveted brands, spanning everything from electronics to loudspeakers and turntables to headphones. In addition, the halls will be crawling with industry influencers, icons, and product designers, making this an event that's sure to be memorable. And, Qobuz returns as the show’s official streaming service. David Solomon, Chief Hi-Res Evangelist for Qobuz USA, will host his famous Flash DJ sessions throughout the event.
The entire Florida Audio Expo experience is capped by the facility, which was originally built to house condominiums. Now that it's been converted, each room enjoys the benefits of acoustic isolation, which conveys a feeling of comfort and luxury to attendees and exhibitors alike.

Late last year, Bart Andeer, Managing Partner, remarked: “We’re excited to be returning for our fifth year with almost all of our exhibit rooms already sold out. It’s a testament to the atmosphere we’ve created here that so many of our 2023 exhibitors are returning, and we’re also welcoming some established brands for the first time. Attendees will have the opportunity to see a wide variety of products on display, making it easier to find the best option for their music-reproduction needs. We welcome everyone to the Sunshine State to celebrate our passion for music—it’s the reason we created this show!”
Tickets can still be purchased online: Single-day admission, $25; admission for all three days, $35; free admission for students, children, and spouses. In addition, the Expo is running a promotion where students claiming a free ticket are automatically entered into a raffle that will award a friend or family member with a FREE multi-day pass.
