I was looking at the web site for the NYC show at the Park Lane Hotel starting November 9 and did not yet see VPI listed as attending. I was hoping they were, especially sine it is so close to their home.

Does anyone know if they are planning to attend as an exhibiter?

Can anyone from VPI that can tell us about this? Plans need to be made if people want to attend and this could be a decision making item!

Hello Suntea!
Normally, we do not have a dedicated room at the New York Show. However, we do normally have multiple turntables on display for you to listen to through other exhibitors. We also normally have Mat, Jane, and myself walking the show for one of the days.

If you are looking to meet and greet with the VPI team & turntables I'd suggest to look into Capital AudioFest. We exhibit there and we are doing some cool special things for it this year. Can't reveal too much info on it quite yet though 8-)

If you have any other questions please let me know.

Thank you for posting the link jonathanb!

The show will be: November 2, 3, 4, 2018 at the Twinbrook Hilton, Rockville MD.

This is my favorite show as an exhibitor. It's a very laid back environment and we get the chance to really interact with everyone and share some great stories. I've been going there since the 2015 show and can't wait for it each year. It's an open invite for the whole VPI staff to go down and we try to get our whole product line on display. This year we are doing two rooms so it's twice the fun!

In the past we've built a turntable from scratch infront of everyone, had two world class performance compete against the system, and one year we tried to have the VPI Band play but we all sort of forgot to show up for band practice and got cold feet at the last second. Mat still came with trombone in hand and ready to play :lol:

Also, if you go make sure to check out Odyessy at the Montrose room. Klaus knows how to set up a room! Last year he transformed a hotel room into an outdoor area setting and the year before that he did some awesome lighting displays. I tend to sneak off to his room a lot and have a great time. Just don't tell Mat if you see me there :lol:
