ALMA International Exhibited At A.E.S. Los Angeles
Two suspicious individuals manning the ALMA booth....
The A.E.S. Show in Los Angeles was by all accounts a huge success. Vice President Mark Beach and Association Manager Barry Vogel manned the ALMA International booth and were kept very busy! Current and future ALMA members stopped by to chat, and very valuable relationships were strengthened and future plans begun. In other words, a huge success for ALMA as well. Now about that L.A. traffic....
A special THANK-YOU! to ALMA member Materion and Board of Directors member Peter Andrews for donating the booth to ALMA International. This would not have happened without you!
What is ALMA?
ALMA- The Association of Loudspeaker Manufacturing and Acoustics International
is a not for profit trade association. ALMA is the only international trade association dedicated to improving the design and manufacture of loudspeakers. Our membership is comprised of loudspeaker designers and manufacturers as well as suppliers of test and measurement equipment and other products, consultants and other service providers to the loudspeaker industry. Individuals, academic institutions, and educators, participating in the loudspeaker industry are encouraged to join. ALMA enjoys and welcomes a global membership. The organization was founded in 1961 as "The American Loudspeaker Manufacturers Association". In 2001, ALMA changed to "Association of Loudspeaker Manufacturing and Acoustics International" to reflect a global reach and to embrace a more diverse membership.
ALMA International's mission statement promises that we will be The Source for all things related to the acoustics, audio, and loudspeaker industry. With that in mind, ALMA proudly announces the introduction of ALMA Business. Our information and content will be divided into two segments; ALMA Business & ALMA Technical.
