The numbers are IN – on its 5th Anniversary, T.H.E. Show Newport exceeded its own record-breaking figures. In all categories, T.H.E. Show experienced over 8,500 attendees, exhibitors and guests. This exceeds the 2014 total by 1,300.
T.H.E. Show Newport has grown every year since the first ribbon-cutting in 2011 in size and status. 406 separate companies exhibited at T.H.E. Show this year, with over 170 “live” demo exhibits, plus over 120 booths.

Also increasing in size this year was the Los Angeles and Orange County Audio Society. T.H.E. Show brought them an additional 163 members and helped stage the new “Audio University” Seminars. The Society easily now predicts a 2,000 person membership soon – unquestionably the largest such Society in the World.
