We recently spent a very good weekend as the guests of the Warsaw Audio Show and one thing that really stood out for us was how knowledgeable and passionate the people were about music and audio. This got me thinking as to why this should be and I formulated a couple of opinions and how this reflects on other countries way of consuming music. More »
The now famous Hifi Pig Loves You Award can be quite a tricky thing to actually choose. We thought it was difficult at Munich this year, but the Warsaw show was even harder to decide. The standard of the show was just incredible, the three venues each had a different feel and all the exhibitors had put a lot of effort into making it a spectacular success. One thing we definitely noticed was that all the non Polish brands that we know said that their Polish distributors worked very hard and were incredibly dedicated to promoting them in Poland. More »

This is the first Warsaw that we at Hifi Pig have attended but we’re so happy we made the effort because it has been undoubtedly one of the best, if not THE best we’ve been to. The people of Warsaw have been wonderfully welcoming, the food and drink has been spectacularly good and the company we’ve enjoyed has been marvellous.
The show itself is over three venues, two hotels (The Radisson, The Golden Tulip) and also at the national stadium. The organisers have ensured that access to each is simple with a free coach service between the hotels and the stadium and turnout was colossal and very enthusiastic.
One of the things that really hit home was how diverse the make up of the crowds has been. This is not just middle aged men turning up and you have couples, families and lots of younger people which is really refreshing and great to see.
Thanks to everyone who stopped to say hello and a really big well done to the organisers of the show, particularly Adam Mokrzycki whose communication and advice has been absolutely spot on!
So without further ado here are our a few hundred photographs that we took at the Warsaw show. We hope you enjoy them! You’ll need to go right through to the end to find out who won our Hifi Pig Loves You award!
