JMI at the Association of Public Address Engineers' Exhibition, March 1965
The King's Head Hotel, Harrow, venue for the Exhibition. The halls (upper and lower) are to the left of the main hotel building, flags on the terrace balcony.
In 1965, Jennings Musical Industries again attended the Exhibition (an annual event) of Public Address manufacturers and engineers at the King's Head Hotel in Harrow. Brief details of the 1964 are available here.
Between March 1964 and March 1965 Vox was busy, bringing to market various new things, notably the new metal-clad amplifiers, mixers and paging systems, which were shown at the British Musical Instrument Industries Trade Fair at the Russell Hotel in London, August '64.

The principal items that JMI chose to show at Harrow in 1965 were the Vox Radio Microphone unit - advert on this page - and the new Public Address amplifiers.
Below, some shots from a copy of the catalogue of the event, tightly bound by the British Library. The pages are uniformly yellow, not variegated as the photos might suggest.
