The Warsaw Audio Video Show has become an institution and, next to the High End in Munich, can be called leading, also in terms of size.
From October 27 to 29, the Warsaw Audio Video Show is on the roll again (click on the EN button at the top right of the event’s homepage if you can’t make sense of Polish). A festive twenty-fifth edition even. The location is special: in the stadium – once built for the 2012 European Championships of the Polish capital Warsaw. It is the (still?) second largest show with this theme in Europe, next to the High End in Munich. You will find there 600 brands, 160 presentation rooms and 150 exhibitors. Both video and sound are covered, including a large headphone zone. You can experience Poland’s largest vinyl fair, while numerous special guests are attending too.
VIP boxes and hotels
By the way, the stadium part of the Warsaw Audio Video Show is not held in the noisy standard exhibition space there, but in the quiet VIP boxes. The show also operates in the rest of the city, specifically at the Golden Tulip and Radisson Blu Sobieski hotels. A day ticket costs only 50 Polish Zlotys or about 11 Euros. A ticket for all days costs 75 Zloty. Warsaw is easily accessible by plane, train and car from many European countries.
Practical tip: if you want to add a few days of city trips, keep in mind that November 1 is All Saints’ Day. This is a large event in Poland, with everything closed. But you can visit one of the many (and crowded) often historic cemeteries, usually with stands selling food and other items around. Especially in the late afternoon and early evening, such a visit guarantees an absolute spectacle thanks to the many candles burning then. Recommended.
