GALLERY: HONG KONG AV & HEAD-FI SHOW 2017
Hong Kong's AV - HeadFi Show held at the Hong Kong Expo and Convention Centre attracted an estimated 30,000 strong crowd. Here's our gallery of what can be seen and heard at this great show.
As my first time to the HK show, all I'd been told was to expect crowds, ridiculous humidity and that this show is Asia's answer to Munich's High End Show. They were spot on, except to say that in my opinion the Convention Centre is actually a much better venue than Munich's MOC for ease of getting around, catering options and an overall better presentation.
Crowds were in the thousands, in fact rumoured to have attracted an estimated 30,000 attendees across the three days making it the busiest HiFi show in the world. With no pre-purchasing of tickets available, the queues for ticketing certainly reflected that those numbers. Fortunately a Press Pass saw me bypass the queue and get straight in. Perks!
There's no doubting high end audio and HiFi in general is alive and well in Asia, but even stronger is the evident popularity of Portable Audio and Headphones. The booths in Hall 3 were literally packed with keen enthusiasts plugging in their smartphones to demo the very latest offerings.
And with that, here's our gallery. There's also more photos and you can join in the discussion in the event thread.
