In 2018, we had 1,600 attendees and we are humbled by the support and feedback from attendees who love the show and keep coming back. None of this would be possible without SAE Institute, who has been instrumental in helping us host Music Expo for the past five years. We are grateful for their continued support and to be able to provide Music Expo as a platform for the creative community to gather,” said Loïc Maestracci, Founder of Music Expo.
“SAE Institute is honored to continue our partnership with Music Expo as they deliver what has become one of the premier conferences in the music industry,” said Michael Bottrill, President and General Manager. “Aligning ourselves with events like Music Expo provides our students with opportunities to engage with some of today’s most prominent audio professionals, providing real-world experience to enhance their education.”
Nick Humbert, International Business Development Manager at Sound On Sound said "The Music Expo platform has now become the leading end-user conference for those looking to increase their knowledge of music production, business, technology and techniques with a superbly curated collection of speakers and exhibitors. Taking this content to the regions fills an important niche not serviced by the big 'trade' shows and as the #1 magazine in this sector, SOS is delighted to continue its close collaboration with the #1 educational series of events."
