AES and NAB New York 2023 Recap

November 21, 2023


Our Recap Of The AES and NAB New York Show.

The co-located AES and NAB New York shows brought together nearly 20,000 professionals in the audio, broadcast, media and production world in the heart of New York City. A multitude of manufacturers were on hand showing the latest and greatest in gear.

Best of all, our team was in the middle of it all, hosting a booth for people to meet our Sales Professionals, see some new products, and network. Our team also scoured the show floor for new developments and technologies advancing the world of sound.

"Being in New York, this is an important show for Dale. Its proven when we see how packed our booth was this year, probably even more than last year," noted Dale's Ross Lager. "For as long as Dale has been around, shows like this are beneficial to us. We can connect on a more intimate level with our customers, vendors, and friends, whether the relationship is of 6 months or 20 plus years."
