BBQ's 2014
ADVISORY BOARD
The Nineteenth Annual
Interactive Audio Conference
OFFICIAL REPORT

INFLUENCING AUDIO HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE
OVER THE NEXT 5 YEARS

October 20th-23rd, 2014, some of the brightest minds in the interactive audio community traded the comforts and chaos of the corporate world to convene at a secluded country inn to discuss, argue, debate, brainstorm and possibly alter the course of history for audio on computing devices over the next five years.

The Nineteenth Annual Texas Interactive Audio Think Tank offered a unique and highly effective way to confront the toughest issues facing our industry today, and to positively influence their outcome. It is one of the most prestigious, influential and beneficial networking events of the year. This unusual conference gathers together the movers and shakers of the audio industry for several days of concentrated, uninterrupted discussions, debates, and roundtables, as well as inspirational and practical speaker sessions with industry leaders.

BBQ has given the competitive edge to its attendees, who have formed long-standing alliances and organizations.

This year's Project Bar-B-Q continued in the traditions of BBQ's past, with deep consideration of how we might positively affect how audio is produced, perceived and distributed.
