The Indulgence Show has revealed it will return for a second year, with the 2017 event scheduled for September 29 to October 1.
The show will return to the Novotel London West and will keep its ‘three shows in one’ format, with Audio London, Headroom and Pure Pleasure operating under the umbrella brand of The Indulgence Show.
Show founders, Vernon Hamblin and Amit Patel, are keen to present the event as a show “for the industry, by the industry, free from hidden agendas” and in line with what the UK hi-fi industry has been repeatedly asking for.
The show will feature live music from several artists performing during the daytime opening hours and after hours at public concerts and the private exhibitor party.
Visitors will also been given the opportunity to try their own hand at making music, courtesy of Yamaha Music.
The seminars and exhibitions will also return in 2017, promising to be “even bigger and better”.
The show has confirmed that there will be a larger exhibition of rare rock photographs from leading rock photographer Ross Halfin, which will include his collection of original concert posters, dating back to the early Isle of Wight festivals.
Additional seminars will be announced in the coming months.
Show organiser Mr Hamblin said: “The response to the first Indulgence Show has been superb, with exhibitors and contributors praising it for its atmosphere, format, professional organisation and quality of visitors. We promised the industry a new event and the new audience it has been crying out for and we delivered. 2017 will see us build on this, with additional attractions and even more targeted publicity aimed at bringing high-net-worth individuals and families to the show to experience the incredible products our exhibitors make.”
He added: “With our considerable advertising and marketing efforts, combined with the help of the industry in communicating to its own customer databases, we are confident that the visitor numbers will be higher than we saw at this year’s inaugural show. We look forward to opening the doors again in 2017.”
