Pacific Audio Fest Registration Now Open | Announcements

SEATTLE (PTA) — Destined to become the west coast’s premier audio show, the Pacific Audio Fest announced today the opening of vendor and attendee registration. For vendors, an early bird exhibit room rate is available until January 15th. The show is scheduled for July 30 – Aug 1, 2021, and located in Seattle, WA.

Show organizers are promising a 100% refund to be available for vendors if the event is cancelled due to Coronavirus concerns and restrictions.

Shoe attendees are encouraged to book available lodging rooms in advance and take advantage of the special rate allocated for PAF attendees that extends to three days before and after the show dates, allowing attendees to soak up more of the PNW than just the PAF audio show.

About Pacific Audio Fest

No, we are not just another audio show, we are positioned to be the premiere west coast audio show! The Pacific Audio Fest (PAF) is not looking to be the largest audio show, but want to be your show of choice on the west coast. Lou Hinkley and Gary Gill have both been in the audio business for quite a while. Together we will be applying everything we know to make this the yearly GO-TO audio event – created by exhibitors for exhibitors. PAF knows what exhibitors are looking for, and are always available and will do everything possible to make this the premier experience for every exhibitor. By doing that, we are convinced that PAF will also be a great show for all attendees.

One of the guiding principles for this show will be to keep the scale manageable for everyone. We envision about 80-100 rooms as optimal for this type of consumer audio show, and will ensure that the show will not expand far beyond that. Already the enthusiasm for this show looks like we may sell out the very first year. Once we hit our desired capacity, we will have a vendors’ waiting list on a first-come, first-served basis, and a firm “grandfather” policy.

By strategically locating PAF in Seattle, we anticipate vendors and attendees from not only the United States, but also Canada and Asia. The dates we have planned also allow you to visit Seattle and its surrounding natural beauty by rail. The Doubletree/Hilton is located within walking distance of the Seattle Airport, and has over 800 sleeping rooms. Better yet, the standard PAF exhibit rooms are the largest of any audio show! Our 2021 vendor rates are very reasonable, AND we have an Early-Bird policy (until January 15, 2021) with an additional discount.
