DJ Expo 2021

9th August 2021 Venue: Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. City: Atlantic City, NJ

The 2021 DJ Expo will take place August 9-12 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City.

Produced by DJ Times magazine since its 1990 inception, DJ Expo is the DJ industry’s longest-running, most-successful exhibition/trade show. Presenting its unique combo of tech-driven exhibits, educational seminars and sponsored events, DJ Expo is excited to inhabit a venue that boasts over 150,000 square feet of meeting and event space, not the mention the most modern amenities that any AC hotel/casino has to offer. All of this, of course, is set right on Atlantic City’s legendary Boardwalk.

Now in its 32nd year, DJ Expo remains America’s largest gathering of professional DJs.

Working with Hard Rock allows DJ Expo the unique ability to provide a special, music-driven experience that all show-goers will appreciate. This new and exciting synergy will benefit attendee and exhibitor alike.

Also of note: The property features the hotel-and-convention industry’s most up-to-date safety protocols, which include attention to disinfecting detail by the Hard Rock’s “Clean Team.” Accordingly, while restrictions will be hopefully removed or limited by August, DJ Expo ’21 will offer the safest possible environment as it re-invigorates an industry looking for a big bounce back.

To that end, DJ Expo has brought on an industry veteran with over 25 years of experience in large-scale trade shows and events – someone who has already completed site inspections and has met with AEX to ensure that we meet and exceed industry guidance and standards.

If you’re a working pro, a bedroom DJ/producer or even an aspiring jock, DJ Expo is for you, as it delivers the gear, the ideas, and the connections for a fulfilling and potentially profitable DJ career.

DJ Expo’s 30 seminars offer solutions to the biggest issues in the ever-changing DJ industry, be they club-, mobile-, or studio-related topics. From basic beatmixing to detailed SEO marketing, from making music to getting gigs, from performance tips to technology trends, DJ Expo sessions are rich with ideas and offer the freshest perspectives. Also, DJ Expo “Keynote Q&A” sessions offer entertaining presentations from industry legends like Grandmaster FlashLaidback LukeJazzy JeffZ-TripTalib Kweli, Paul van DykBiz MarkieMarkus SchulzQBertJellybean BenitezMorgan Page & more.

The DJ Expo showfloor & demo rooms – featuring more than 100 companies – showcase the audio, lighting, video, studio & accessory products that impact DJs of all stripes. On DJ Expo’s showfloor, DJs meet the industry’s top manufacturers and experience its latest technologies.

Also, sponsored DJ Expo events give attendees & exhibitors special networking and branding opportunities, plus they deliver memorable musical experiences featuring trend-setting DJs and hit-making artists.
