Save the Date: Futuresource Consulting’s Audio Collaborative event returns to London

As the audio tech industry hits new obstacles, reaches fresh highs and sails forward on a wave of reinvention, Futuresource Consulting announces the return of its flagship Audio Collaborative event, taking place at the Ham Yard Hotel in London on 10 November 2022.

“It’s been a turbulent few years for audio,” says Carl Hibbert, Director, Futuresource Consulting. “Component shortages and rising distribution costs are being counterbalanced by tremendous growth, rapid innovation and a deep consumer fascination. The market is awash with opportunity, though strategic manoeuvring is playing a much bigger role in the business plans of many. And that’s what will make this year’s Audio Collaborative event so exciting.”

From entertainment to automotive, health and hearing, to virtual assistants, the market is advancing fast. There’s a rising consumer demand for high-quality, immersive audio, and the metaverse is also sliding into the picture. At the same time, sustainability is climbing up the agenda.

The question is, how are businesses fusing creativity and commerciality to meet the demands of an ever-evolving landscape? Topics for discussion this year include:

  • Addressing the Headwinds: Facing the challenges of component shortages
  • The Next Big Thing: Exploring the devices and drivers behind the next wave of consumer audio upgrade and replacement
  • Making a Big Noise in Gaming: Optimising the player experience through improved audio, enhanced soundtracks and immersive dialogue
  • Who’s Doing the Talking: The future for virtual assistants, the development of AI, and edge versus device processing
  • Sounding Out on Sustainability: The current initiatives and a look at what more can be done
  • The Content Creation Reboot: Opportunities for the content creation industry as we enter the new normal
  • Audio in Automotive: The latest on in-car connectivity and how automotive and tech industries are driving new services, products and business models


This year's Audio Collaborative is an in-person all-day event. It takes place at the Ham Yard Hotel in London on 10 November 2022, concluding with a networking drinks reception. Places are limited, so industry executives wishing to attend should book their places quickly to guarantee a seat.
