In all the years we have done the hifishow, our goal have always been to provide an exquisite dinner on the Saturday evening. During the years we have tried a veriaty of themes. Everything from three course eco friendly dinner with wine, to more pub inspired food. The last 10 years we have a banquet where every exhibitor has a number of seats depending on the size of the area they rent. On the banquet the majority of a whole hifi business sit together, something we have heard is quite uniqe in the world. On the Saturday evening we also present the ”Swedish Hifi Lifetime Achievement” award right before dessert. The jury – consisting of journalists, the organizer and the people who has recieved the prize up until now – are now honouring one person who is usually among us in the room. And hopefully not awere of whats going to happen.
In 2018, the Hifishow finally found the right place for the banquet. The founder of the exhibition, Olle Mårtensson, had a favourite pub in Alingsås, Lindgrens Krog. By pure coincidence our paths were crossed again when we were looking for a restaurant big enough for 200 people, delicious food and close enough to the exhibition area – it was Lindgren himself, who now resides in the main Avenue in what is called ”The Castle in the Avenue”. If you attended the banquet in 2018, you will remember the food and the standing ovation we gave the chefs. The choice of venue is now a given.
