A Major Electronics Show For Chicago

AXPONA is proud to present it's next show in the great city of Chicago. With successful shows already presented in New York City, Atlanta and Jacksonville, AXPONA is now prepared to bring the excitement and thrills of a major music and equipment show, with all it has to offer, to the Midwest.

Many Chicago businesses and residence will recall the great shows presented beginning with the Chicago Music Show.
