The ADC23 will be held from Monday November 13rd – Wednesday November 15th, in London UK

The organizers behind the 9th Annual Audio Developer Conference (ADC23) have reported that there are only a handful of in-person tickets left for the event at The Mermaid in London, with a high probability of selling out soon due to the intense interest from the global audio development community. Digital tickets, however, for the unique online experience via the Gather Virtual Venue platform from November 13-15, 2023 are still accessible at and on Eventbrite. 

ADC23 promises an extensive program of 65 talks, keynotes, panels, and workshops, exclusively dedicated to audio development technologies, encompassing music applications, gaming, audio processing, and embedded systems. Attendees, whether attending in person or virtually, will have the opportunity to acquire new skills and engage with industry leaders, including representatives from major companies like Focusrite, Avid, Native Instruments, GPU Audio, Audiotonix, L’Acoustics, and others
