Mark Your Calendar: Florida Audio Expo 2023

The organizers of the fourth annual Florida International Audio Expo want to get next year’s show on your calendar. The three-day event will return to Tampa Friday, February 17 at the Embassy Suites by Hilton.

More than 90 companies spread over 12 floors will demonstrate their best and latest audio gear with a focus on electronics, speakers, turntables, and headphones. There will be new product introductions as well as special presentations from Michigan-based Classic Audio Loudspeakers, Japan’s TAD (Technical Audio Devices Laboratories), and others.

“We are thrilled to bring to the United States for the first time ever the full Reference One experience, as well as the debut of the CE1TX, TAD’s new Compact Evolution speaker,” said Dave Malekpour, owner of PAD HiFi, the U.S. distributor of TAD, an iconic speaker brand that remains a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pioneer and, as such, enjoys full corporate support and manufacturing.

Qobuz will once again serve as the Expo’s official streaming service and Chief Hi-Res Evangelist David Solomon is set to host his famous Flash DJ sessions throughout the show.

“We have been traveling the globe to reach new exhibitors, and locally, we are participating in several shows to reach new attendee groups,” said Bart Andeer, co-founder and operations manager of the Expo. “We are proud to offer our attendees the opportunity to experience various levels of products available in the market, always with the focus on celebrating and enjoying our shared passion for music in a fun, relaxed environment.”

Tickets are on sale now with single-day admission priced at $25 and a three-day pass going for $35. Students, children, and spouses are free. Show hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. Click here to order.
