Chester Group, UK-based organisers of the 2019 Australian Hi-Fi & AV Show planned to be held in Sydney this year have announced they will postpone their show until 2020.

Roy Bird, Chairman of UK's Chester Group, told StereoNET:

The Chester Group have spent over three months talking directly, and at length, with past and potentially new Exhibitors and there continues to be a considerable concern that the majority believe the Australian industry just cannot justify two shows per year.

As organisers of the 2019 StereoNET Melbourne International Hi-Fi Show, October 18-20, and now in its fourth year, we believe this is a positive outcome for the industry and thank Roy Bird and Chester Group for their cooperation.

The decision will no doubt leave Sydney-based AV and Hi-Fi enthusiasts disappointed. However, StereoNET would like to extend a special offer to Sydney residents to attend the Melbourne show in October.

StereoNET is offering complimentary Day Passes to the October show to anyone presenting official photo identification showing an NSW residential address. To take advantage of this offer, purchase your tickets here and present your Photo ID upon entry at the show.

The 2019 StereoNET Melbourne Hi-Fi Show is shaping up to show once again why it's a leading show of its type, gaining international attention and attracting crowds of thousands across all three days, enthusiasts and newcomers alike.

The 2019 StereoNET Melbourne Hi-Fi Show will take place October 18-20, Pullman Mercure Hotel, Queens Road, Albert Park. If you're on Facebook, you can like the official page here, and RSVP to the event here.

Tickets are on sale now.
