The Los Angeles and Orange County Audio Society had announced the launch of AudioConLA back in the summer of 2021. Now it has, like many other winter 2021/22 events, been cancelled with a new date to be announced.

The event was all set to be a new international high-end HiFi Show organised with the LA & OC Audio Society and Sarah Tremblay and Michel Plante, the duo behind Montreal Audiofest and Toronto Audiofest. This follows on from one of our major UK shows, the Bristol HiFi Show 2022, being cancelled before Christmas.

AudioConLA Postponed

AudioConLA 2022 has been postponed, with new dates to be announced soon


Michel Plante told us: “For the last fifteen years, Sarah and I have been organizing audio shows, and believe us, we went through many epic situations. Since the pandemic’s beginning, we have closely followed the development of Covid-19 and its variants to make sure we make the right decision at the right time. As a result, in the last 22 months, we have cancelled three of our four shows as it was unsafe. When we announced AudioConLA last June, no one could have predicted the situation we are in today. Since last week, the condition has deteriorated rapidly. The CES is seeing its most prominent exhibitors withdraw due to the exponential increase of Omicron cases. The Grammy Awards are postponing their dates, professional leagues are rescheduling games, thousands of flights are cancelled every day, many countries are under lockdown, and the CDC is projecting record numbers of cases for the month of January. Due to the emerging hyper-infectious Omicron variant, it became evident that it would be impossible to hold our event in total safety on the dates we planned it. We feel it would be thoughtless to host a large international gathering amid the rapidly spreading COVID-19 infections. The health and well-being of our participants are our ultimate priority. The event is therefore postponed to a later date”.


The organisers went on to say: “We are incredibly disappointed for the public and for our partners who supported us: the Hyatt Regency, the manufacturers, exhibitors, sponsors, press, artists, and collaborators, but we had to take the decision now before all parties incurred additional costs”.

AudioConLA says that they will refund everyone at 100% within the next couple of days.
