July 15 2019, 00:35
Promoted every year by market research firm Futuresource Consulting, Audio Collaborative is a premier must attend event for consumer audio, pro audio and entertainment industry professionals. The event returns to London for the sixth time, November 7, 2019, with a full day of invaluable insights, expert discussions and networking opportunities. There are more key industry executives attending, more high-profile companies sponsoring and getting involved, and the topics couldn't be more relevant. Plan ahead and freeze that day on your agenda.

Audio Collaborative is a one-full-day format conference, where Futuresource leading market analysts and researchers share some of the latest stats and trends on the topics in the agenda, followed normally by a panel debate, mixed in between keynotes from leading industry executives and industry experts. Between the sessions, attendees can visit the sponsor's room presentations, see some technical demos, chat with the experts, and network with both speakers and attendees at the bar and food area. All during the event, Futuresource experts will be available to make introductions and comment further on the growth and the crossover of business opportunities for the entire audio ecosystem.

It's the best possible use of one's time, there are no concurrent conflicting sessions to manage, and the conference room facilities at The Ham Yard Hotel, located at the heart of London, are of great quality, including comfortable seating!

Past participants and attendees have included senior executives from the content and broadcast industry, service provider community, audio hardware and related tech industries. Renowned for always addressing the hot topics and issues of the day, this year's event promises to be no different. Data rich Futuresource presentations will be accompanied by expert insights and panels from industry heavyweights.

Futuresource already confirmed that Carsten Olesen, President of the Consumer Audio Division at Harman International, will be delivering the keynote at its sixth ‘Audio Collaborative’ conference. “It is a great honor to keynote this dynamic event,” says Olesen. “I look forward to the discussions with industry stakeholders on what the future holds for the audio industry.”

For the 2019 edition, Futuresource already confirmed Qualcomm as a platinum sponsor of the event. The American multinational semiconductor and telecommunications equipment company has been supporting Futuresource's Audio Collaborative event for a number of years now and this is the first year they will be participating as platinum sponsor. 

Also sponsoring the event for the second time, Audiogum is a B2B technology company that works to create premium software solutions for audio device manufacturers and streaming services.
