Resolution has taken on the staging and management of the SoundPro expo that was introduced by the Institute of Professional Sound (IPS) and other pro sound organisations. The one-day event will be the seventh annual event of its type.

“The idea of an informal, accessible and audio targeted UK event for audio freelancers, location recordists, production sound operators, and audio professionals in broadcast, film, post and live sound enjoys a strong resonance among the UK audio community,” said Resolution’’s Zenon Schoepe“We and the IPS share the same vision of what this great event should be and we’re co-operating to make it better and more resilient.”

SoundPro 2015 will be held in a different and more appropriate hall to last year’s event and will include an informal table-top exhibition of manufacturers, distributors, dealers and service providers, practical presentation sessions by the IPS, and an opportunity to meet, socialise and network with likeminded individuals.

Confirmed exhibitors at the SoundPro expo include Calrec, Rycote, BCD Audio, SoundKit Ltd, Audio Ltd, Sound Network, Audio Related Technology, PMC, Focusrite RedNet, Dedleg, Ioco (Schoeps), and Sennheiser UK.

It is free to visitors https://soundpro2015.eventbrite.com

“At its core we want to deliver a proper table-top pro audio expo in the best British tradition!” said Schoepe.

AES logoContinuing our series of events designed to introduce MPG Full Members to those of other UK music industry organisations, we introduce the first such social event with the members of the Audio Engineering Society.

Entry to this event is free, but you must register by hitting the CLICK HERE button below, as places are limited.

The Audio Engineering Society is the only professional society devoted exclusively to audio technology. Founded in the United States in 1948, the AES has grown to become an international organization that unites audio engineers, creative artists, scientists and students worldwide by promoting advances in audio and disseminating new knowledge and research. AES members have expressed a desire to connect with MPG members, with whom they share a lot in common.

It would be of interest to MPG members to make connections with AES members, especially so as to engage in technical discussions, as many MPG members now run their own studios, which present all manner of technical challenges.

Learn more about the origins of the AES here.
