Pacific Audio Fest Announces Venue Selection

Updated: Sep 10, 2020

  • Large Exhibitor Rooms, Close to Airport & Downtown Seattle

  • 100% Refund If Postponed Because of Covid

Today, Pacific Audio Fest, the audio show by exhibitors and music lovers for exhibitors and music lovers, announced that the Doubletree by Hilton - Seattle Airport will be the venue for the event, to be held July 30 - August 1, 2021.

With spacious exhibit rooms, two ballrooms, 800 sleeping rooms, and a killer 14th-floor restaurant and bar offering 360-degree views of Seattle and Mt. Rainier, the Double Tree Hilton is the perfect home for Pacific Audio Fest.


Large Exhibit Rooms

The standard exhibit rooms are 21ft x 15ft 5in.

“These are the largest standard exhibit rooms I’ve seen at any audio show,” says Pacific Audio Fest Show Manager, Gary Gill.

Larger rooms offer better sonics and more flexibility to the audio companies showing off their gear. It also means more space and better flow for attendees.

800 Sleeping Rooms On-Site

With 800 sleeping rooms on-site, there should be plenty of on-site accommodations for exhibitors and attendees.

The venue also features free WiFi, two fitness centers, and an outdoor pool.

Close to the Airport and Downtown Seattle

Located less than 10 minutes from SeaTac International Airport by free shuttle, exhibitors and attendees alike will enjoy easy, stress-free arrival and departure from Pacific Audio Fest.

In addition, the hotel shuttle offers service to SeaTac Airport Light Rail Station, making it easy to get to downtown Seattle and explore all the region has to offer from the home base of a luxury hotel.

100% Refunds If Show is Forced to Postpone Because of Covid

“We say that Pacific Audio Fest is first and foremost a show by exhibitors for exhibitors, and we mean that,” says Pacific Audio Fest Show Director and Owner of Daedalus Audio, Lou Hinkley. “We negotiated the contract so that if we need to shift the show to 2022 because of Covid, then everyone will get a 100% refund on deposits.”

Exhibitor Rates and Room Selection Coming Soon

More details on room rates will be available later in September, and deposits will be taken soon thereafter.
