Gary Gill is a very nice guy, trying hard to make it a success. Last couple years have been good. It is growing rapidly.  This year is a new venue, the third change since it started.

Attendance is pretty good, gets better each year, but not like RMAF, but even they have had slow years.

We had a pretty good showing last year. Not a huge venue but also not as expensive as some of the bigger shows. Worth the price of admission in my opinion with very good attendance and located in even a better location this year. Gary is really easy to talk to.

  Hey Bill, stop in for a beer in our room. Was great meeting you for the first time last year.

Thinking of getting your product out there for people to hear ??
Big shows like New York, Newport, RMAF are great audio spectator type events. People come from all over to drool over the latest and greatest.
Lots of fun..wish I could go, but like myself I am sure there are a lot of folks that cant just jet off to the other side of the country for a few days.
Consider exhibiting at Capital Audiofest... Centrally located on the east coast...deep in the territory of some of the most well heeled audiophiles in the country.
 Most people looking to buy have driven no more than 5 or 6 hours. These are our local customers, this is the place to make connections and get your product heard.
The price is less than the big shows and sleeping accommodations are included.
CAF is more laid back, a very enjoyable experience for exhibitors and show goers alike.  Greg

Hope to see you there Greg, with the latest and greatest version of your speakers?

My son Henry and I will be attending again this year.  Looking forward to seeing everybody again.

Wish I could sneak out there but don't think Glenn or the Dr. would either one want me off gallivanting around the East coast instead of being at home working.

I really want to hear those speakers.  I assume you'll be at RMAF?

If you change your mind, let me know. That's absolutely the biggest/best audio show in the US IMO.  I know it's a haul but we have people from all over the world show up both to attend and to show.

Don't get me wrong - the Capital AudioFest seems to be growing nicely and sounds like a great show.

   See Senor RMAF is "Da Show" . Overwhelming maybe but a great place to show off ones wares.
    Greg I believe I have a room where we could share.  . We will talk.

Update...Triode Wire Labs / Swap Meet Audio / GT Audio Works will have a 2nd room at Capital Audiofest this year.

Room 806 will have a smaller less expensive GT audio Works speaker the GTA 1.
Triode Pete will provide the power cables and speaker cables , Charlie Rollo will provide the electronics..yet to be determined.   
See you at CAF rooms 817 & 806
