The Bristol Hifi Show is, without doubt, one of the highlights of the Hifi calendar and is VERY popular with industry folk as well as visitors, with a long line of people queuing to get in when we arrived around twenty minutes before doors opening on the Friday. It’s a difficult show for us to get to and involves a couple of long drives and an overnight ferry but to miss the show would be somewhat remiss of us. The organisation of the show is second to none with the press being very well catered for as well as visitors. The excellent and free show guide has brief information about all exhibitors and several very useful floorplans to allow you to easily navigate the many rooms of the show. Facilities at the Marriot are good too with a good bar area where we met brands and readers alike, a restaurant and several areas where refreshments were available. More »
