The Rocky Mountain Audio Fest (RMAF) has, over the past few years of its existence, become the best two-channel audio show in the country. Part of that success was due to not having much competition. Some audio shows wanted too much money for the exhibit space, so small audio manufacturers couldn't afford to exhibit. RMAF is very affordable to exhibit, and it is one very exciting show to attend. It is held at the Denver Marriott Tech Center, which is between the airport and Denver.http://audiofest.net/2010/index.php
There is also the Lone Star Audio Fest that is held in Texas, but I had not heard about it until I did a search. The irony is that I was born in Forth Worth. Here is the 2010 show report by Enjoy the Music:http://www.enjoythemusic.com/lsaf_2010/
And, the AudioKarma Fest, 2010, held in Detroit, Michigan, reported by Positive Feedback:http://www.positive-feedback.com/Issue49/akfest.htm
Well, now there is going to be even more competition.
