StereoNET, Australia's leading HiFi and Home Theatre publication is pleased to announce the 2018 International HiFi Show's return to Melbourne at the magnificent Pullman Mercure Hotel, Albert Park, October 12th - 14th.

The 2017 International HiFi Show in Melbourne was such a success it was reported as not only the best HiFi show in Australia, ever, but just as importantly, it attracted a new and energised audience.

“They were young. They were eager, and they came in droves!” - Peter Familari

We're pleased to say we'll be back again, this time even bigger. Planning is already well underway. In fact, we've added another whole level to accommodate all the exhibitors for 2018.

Marc Rushton, Events Director and StereoNET Publisher said:

The audience that the International HiFi Show attracts is brand new, energised, and the same audience that is investing in premium 4K TV’s, top end speakers and amplifiers,

For many, they're experiencing high-fidelity sound and premium cinema for the very first time. These customers are crucial to the longevity of the Australian audio video industry.

The 2018 show will see minor changes to the previous format, which will now spread across an additional upper level of the hotel. With over 60 exhibition spaces and more than 150 world‐leading brands, the show is sure to build upon the success of the previous two events held in Melbourne.

The Pullman Mercure Hotel is centrally located in Melbourne overlooking Albert Park, the home of Australian motor racing. Just minutes from the CBD and within easy reach of Melbourne International Airport, it was selected for its ease of access, car parking and public transport.

Catering for students with a discounted ticket offer proved beneficial in 2017 with 468 students in attendance. Once again, students will be encouraged in 2018 with not only discounted tickets but a “bring a friend” promotion which will see them receive free entry.

And again, the 2018 show will be promoted through major media publications, Tourism Victoria, Melbourne Billboards and Posters, as well as building upon the digital and social media reach already established by show organisers.

Tickets to the 2018 Melbourne International HiFi & AV Show will go on sale soon.
