Hallo,

We visited Sound and Vision Manchester 2009. We would like visiting this event in 2010 again.

Is there a Sound and Vision in Manchester in 2010? If so, what is the date of the event?

Regards,

Bart

Diary filled in for this year's (what the kids call) nerdy dad's day out. Followed by a curry in Rusholme and some beers....bliss....

When you're booking in the exhibitors though guys, can you ask them to bring a greater selection of music along so that we can reduce the jazz club ambience. There is only so much acousticy woman jazz vocal smooth sax type music I can take.

Rock on!!!

Do the organisers (Audio-T) have full control over who displays at the show. Or is it a closed shop with manufacturers that supply their shops only.

Would be good if EB Acoustics displayed their wares. What do you think Ricky? I know your busy with orders at the moment, but it would be good for the Hifi fraternity to see your speakers in person.

If it's anything like the Bristol Show it's open to anyone, there was way more in the Show than Audio-T stock and categories they don't even stock (ie vinyl retailers).

Again it's something to ask the organisers - we are merely the media partner of the show (or thereabouts)...

Am I lucky or what? I will be in UK for a vacation in Oct and coincidently, it will be around the same time the show is in Manchester. Will be in UK 8 to 18th Oct. Mostly in Brighton.

Now will need to find a way to persuade the Mrs to go to the midlands for a few days. :)

Manchester in the Midlands? You'd better not say that if you come up here, the locals will set their whippets on you.

Tell her you will take her shoe shopping in Kendals and for some cocktails in the Hilton cloud 23 bar that should persuade her.

I also can not wait for the show I live about 3 miles from it, so might make day of it and with it being my birthday on the 12th well then a night. I was suppose to be working 12.00 to 24.00 sat and sun but managed to get the weekend off. So jobs a good one.

Enjoy your trip over El Hefe

whoops ! Just did a double check prior to leaving for the station to travel to Manchester for the show - and boy am I glad I did, as I would have been a month early. Doh !

You know, I was going to say something when you posted that on Wednesday, then I thought 'Nah, he must realise - perhaps it's a 28-day advance saver thing on the train tickets or something...'

yea, well, they were Advance tickets and I couldn't get a refund but I did manage to change them for the correct date, less an admin fee.

I was convinced it was this weekend - I've had it on the calendar for ages - and all references online and in the mag clearly show October, but I guess it's just word blindness.

Only reason I checked was to double check the venue, as some online references are to the show at the Marriott Hotel.

I'm just wondering. if I buy something from the Manchester Show and it's faulty when i get home or goes faulty how or who would I retutrn the product to. The reason I'm asking is I'm thinking of buying a Sonos system if there are any deals. At the gadget show they were handing out leaflets which had 10% discount from an online store. Would a similar thing happen here?

The show is run by retailers Audio-T in conjunction with Sevenoaks, with fulfillment/support from those stores. There are always decent deals to be had, too - but we rarely get info on exact offers until day before the show. Watch our blog for info!

Thanks. I've got a bit of a wish list jotted down. I'll have a root around the net the day before to get some prices to compare the deals. Some of the stuff I want though i would like buy at the show after having a chat with manufacturers. I think it's only fair on them.

on the floor plans you can see how to get about (as you would expect), but what's happening with the Galileo Suite - it seems to float in space with no way of getting to it?

I did notice that there seems to be some Altar set up for WHF with big columns and walls surrounding it. Wonder if there will be gates too?
