March 1954 Radio & Television News Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio & Television News, published 1919-1959. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

According to the Wikipedia entry, "the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE) was a professional organization which existed from 1912 until December 31, 1962. On January 1, 1963 it merged with the American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE) to form the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)." The IRE's annual convention, quite often held in New York City at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, was the equivalent to what is (was) today (except 2020 and likely 2021, 2022, ...) the IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium (IMS). Product vendors hacked their wares, technical presentations were made, and professional liaisons were made. A visit to the IMS 2021 website shows they are pretending as if there really will be a physical show in Atlanta, Georgia. Georgia is one of the 14 states which as of December do not require face masks, but odds are by June 2021 the entire country will be sporting face diapers per Federal mandate.

1954 IRE National Convention and Radio Engineering Show

1954 IRE National Convention and Radio Engineering Show, March 1954 Radio & Television News - RF CafeThe eye-opening event of the radio-electronic new year!

Waldorf-Astoria Hotel

Kingsbridge Armory

For the past 12 months the vast, fast-growing radio-electronic industry has been preparing for 4 great days - March 22-25. This is when the IRE National Convention and Radio Engineering Show - the biggest and best ever - will take place in New York City. Be sure to join the other radio-electronic men - nearly 40,000 are expected - who will come, see and appraise the show at which all that is new will be unveiled.

A practical summary of radio-electronic progress will be unfolded at 54 technical sessions during the four-day period. 243 scientific and engineering papers, grouped by related interests, will be presented during these sessions, more than half of which are organized by IRE professional groups. Actually, you will be attending 21 conventions fused into one. New York's finest meeting facilities are provided - the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel plus 3 huge halls in Kingsbridge Armory. Transportation between the two locations is quick, easy - by subway and bus service.

At the show you will find over 600 firms "spotlighting the new" in their high-interest product exhibits. These will extend over a mile and a half along avenues appropriately named for radio elements: "Instruments," "Components," "Airborne," "Radar," "Transistor," "Audio," "Microwave," etc. These exhibits, an education and revelation in themselves, fill the four-acre space of the great Kingsbridge Armory ... and can be viewed throughout anyone or all of the four days.

Admission is by registration only, and serves for the four-day period. For IRE members the cost is only $1.00. For non-members it is a low $3.00, covering sessions and exhibits. Social events have been carefully planned. These are priced separately.

March 22-25, 1954

is the date! New York is the city where the radio-electronic event of the year will take place. Come! See! Enjoy!
