The Futuresource Audio Collaborative Conference will return for its fifth annual outing this year at London's Ham Yard Hotel on Thursday, November 8.

The Audio Collaborative Conference will provide opportunities for businesses across the pro audio industry to come together, network and share ideas on professional and consumer audio products.

Harman's SVP and previous attendee, Armin Prommersberger, said: “It’s a very exciting day, very open how everyone shares information.” 

Devialet’s general manager, Victor d’Allancé commented: “The panels were very impressive, as were the guests. We met many people we wanted to meet.”

This year’s event will address new topical and disruptive trends. One session is entitled ‘Voice Pervades the Smart Home’ and will discuss control in the modern digital voice assisted home. Another session will look at ‘Kids Tech – Untapped Potential’, which will focus on the way children interact with modern tech. The agenda will also discuss audio-focused presentations and panels which are centred around the music industry, particularly live music.

In addition, this year's Futuresource Consulting Conference has announced that David Roberton, VP of international marketing at Turtle Beach, is expected to join the fifth annual Audio Collaborative event. 

The gaming headset and soundcard manufacturer Turtle Beach provides audio, interactive and collaborative experiences to the ‘Battle Royale’ gaming community. Robertson will join Futuresource Analysts and other industry leaders and representatives from Amazon, Microsoft, IBM and Warner Music among many others.
