Book a table

If you are a synth or modular manufacturer interested in booking a table with us for the Saturday expo, then please contact me on robin at moltenmusictech dotcom. Space is limited, but we do have a few tables spare at the moment.

This is the proposed layout for 2024. We’ve managed to squeeze in a couple more tables. Please be aware that you may or may not have space behind you; you won’t necessarily have a wall behind you or storage space anywhere other than underneath. It’s a table – you get it? Access and setup are from early Saturday morning, doors open at 10:30am, and close at 5pm.
