“This training seminar was one of the best yet” said Moe Sabourin, Director of Operations for IASCA Worldwide “We not only discussed what’s involved in being an IASCA Certified Judge, but we also had in-depth conversations about IASCA’s role with and for retailers as well. I have a strong suspicion that IASCA’s presence in the area is going to grow over the next few years and I’m personally looking forward to doing all I can to help in that growth.”

“Special thanks go to Dan Ungaro, owner of Soundscape, for opening up his shop to the attendees for the training seminar and to Howard Cantor for coordinating this training effort” Sabourin continued to say “Without their commitment to making car audio better in Texas and the surrounding region, this training would not have been a reality.”

Tokyo Auto Salon 2014: Mihama-ku, Chiba, Japan

The Tokyo Auto Salon 2014 was, at least for me, a great weekend filled with all manners of entertainment and spectacle. Whether you enjoyed it or not came down to how you viewed the weekend or, more specifically, what you were looking for. In my case, as always, this meant going in with an open mind to uncover some of the gems the show was bound to hold. This also meant getting there before anyone else did, so I found myself prowling the halls on the Thursday set up, one night before the floodgates opened to the press and general…
