HARMAN, Qualcomm and more announced as sponsors for Audio Collaborative 2023

Futuresource Consulting announces global audio leader HARMAN as the platinum sponsor for Audio Collaborative 2023. The event will return to the Ham Yard Hotel, London, on the 9th of November 2023 to explore issues and opportunities across the audio landscape. 

Carl Hibbert, Director of Research at Futuresource and the event’s organiser, has commented: “HARMAN is a company at the forefront of audio innovation. Their presence at Audio Collaborative will be invaluable to our audience, particularly as we discuss highly relevant themes like Audio in the Car and AI in Audio. Needless to say, we’re delighted to have them onboard.”   

Qualcomm takes diamond sponsorship 

Joining HARMAN on the sponsorship roster is Qualcomm, taking the diamond sponsorship slot. The brand has a rich history of innovation and invention, creating the chipsets that make many audio solutions possible. 

“As a connectivity solution provider, Qualcomm has played a hugely important role in advancing audio technologies. Their legacy perfectly complements the themes we will explore at Audio Collaborative,” says Hibbert.  

Further sponsors announced 

Other sponsors include Analog Devices as gold sponsor, and Sonarworks as bronze sponsor. With Sonarworks’ cutting-edge personalised sound and Analog Devices’ commitment to intelligent connectivity, Audio Collaborative will cover all touchpoints across the world of audio. 

“Our sponsors help make Audio Collaborative into the world-class event it’s known as. The companies’ diverse expertise will bring the event’s discussions to life, providing context and depth with their insider insight. Most excitingly, 2023’s event will mark the tenth official Audio Collaborative, so it’s truly going to be bigger and better than ever before,” comments Hibbert.
