AES Adds Beijing Section

July 11, 2012

Beijing - Jul 10, 2012 - Audio Engineering Society Regions and Sections Chair Peter Cook has concluded a series of meetings in Beijing, which have resulted in the formation of the first Audio Engineering Society Section in mainland China. Early this year, Shusen Wang, a long-time AES member and VP of a Beijing broadcasting company, contacted Cook to explore the possibility of establishing a Beijing Section. In late May, Cook made two AES presentations to members of the China Audio and Video Association (CAVA). Following those meetings a group of more than 25 Chinese AES members from Beijing and othercities discussed a Beijing Section with Cook. Wang was unanimously invited to chair the section.

On the formation of the section, Peter Cook said, "This initial Beijing Section may mark the beginning of a substantial AES expansion in China."

"The AES has many individual members in China. We believe our new Beijing section will sustain a long and mutually beneficial on-going relationship with China's professional audio community," concludes AES executive director Bob Moses.
