    Re: Florida Audio Expo 2023

    This fall (pun intended), I fell and tried to bust up a concrete driveway with my head. I did not succeed.

    I'm recovering well, and according to my neurologist will get back to 100%, but it's a slow process.

    I'm definitely planning on being there. I have my hotel room booked.

    Good to hear. Was going to suggest hiring a neurologist to fix the driveway and a concrete contractor to fix the noggin. See you soon.

    cheers,

    We have maxed out our exhibitor allotment of rooms and actually had to get 7 more exhibit rooms from the hotel. We’ve been turning away last minute Lou’s for the past couple of weeks. If a manufacturer/distributor isn’t at the show, they will seriously be missing out on incredible coverage and free press! I believe we have 77 rooms, nearly double from 2022. Double the ad spend for attracting attendees. We also have 42 press coming….I believe that is the most for any show. Florida Audio Expo 2023. We are also accepting the YouTuber guys with open arms, setting up empty rooms for them to do their wrap up’s, interviews, meet with people. Watch for the other shows to now copy us on that front. LOL.

We are also accepting the YouTuber guys with open arms, setting up empty rooms for them to do their wrap up’s, interviews, meet with people. Watch for the other shows to now copy us on that front. LOL.

    Several years ago when Mike went full time at Suncoast and announced the Tampa show, some knucklehead posted a flamer that portended doom for the show because Mike didn't know what he was doing or getting into. At the time, I think I responded with words to the effect that this guy obviously had never met Mike. I wonder what he would say now? What a huge success the show has become. Never a doubt in my mind. Great job.

    Thank you Eric. It means a lot coming from someone as successful in life and business such as yourself.

    Both guys were named Bill. Both in the industry for decades. One even outlined our failure and ultimate demise in detail long before CovidFlorida Audio Expo 2023.

    Anyway, both were wrong even with Covid! Both apologized publicly. We’ve moved on and I sincerely hope they can both attend one day. Don’t even think about them to be honest.

    We have a GREAT team behind the scenes. Sue, Denise, Bart and the entire Florida show team.

    Our radio ads across the state are running starting today. Jazz and classical stations will be playing them. We have done many things no other show does to attract a broad audience.

    The fun begins next week!
