Took the words right outta my mouth!

See you in NYC!
I'm going back again next year for NYC. See ya there.
Yees!! NYC!! Woohoo!!
I will see everyone in NYC baby. Wooohoo.
Subscribing. Half a year until CanJam SG. Yes, here we go!
Well, this is fine for people either residing in these areas, or are able to travel to them. However, it doesn't seem as convenient as trying to get near to those in a chunk of a region where CanJam is missing out on, the Midwestern US. Why isn't there an event either in Chicago, Milwaukee, or Indianapolis? I would imagine that would attract more people than adding an event in Shanghai, at least those here on Head-Fi.
What, like AXPONA?
I've never been to an AXPONA before, what's it like?
It's a lot like CanJam.
I've not been to Axpona, though that doesn't mean CanJam shouldn't have their own show, or perhaps they could team up at the same event, like the RMAF in Colorado.
If it were me organizing these events, I'd change the international events trying to pair them with another ongoing event, if possible. Then seeing as I just looked Axpona online and notice it appears to be a yearly event in Chicago, that is where CanJam ought to be for the Midwest, while continuing with RMAF every year also. Then have three national sole CanJams in the U.S., one in New York City, one in Los Angeles, and then I'd get one in Orlando, Florida. I think there ought to be at least one somewhere in Canada also, possibly Toronto.
Six per year in North America on a once every other month basis. This would be a great way at really covering the continent with events that at least most people in North America should be able to attend. Having two events in Asia while missing out a good chunk of the U.S. seems like a poor strategy to me. Cut the Singapore event and just keep the Shanghai one. Keep London also, but try to see if there is an event pair up opportunity. That would make for eight events per year. Plenty.
If you've seen our preview video for CanJam Singapore 2017 (link for those who haven't) you'll remember Jude opened by saying, "now, I don't know if you know this but the Singapore Head-Fi community - in terms of cities - is our single biggest community in the world by a margin." There are a ton of Singaporean Head-Fi'ers (Hey guys!) who are constantly active on the forums and I'm told CanJam Singapore has an energy about it that's hard to understand until you see it first-hand. I think it's fairly safe to say that the odds are slim that we'd just "cut the Singapore event."
I'm not privy to all of the details, but I know a considerable amount of thought and research goes into choosing locations for CanJams. Ethan spends a substantial amount of time researching the many Head-Fi markets that are out there and planning events so we can reach as many Head-Fi'ers as possible.
DEN, JFK and LAX are all just a short flight from ORD.
So who's excited for another year of incredible CanJam fun?
This is very true. CanJam Singapore is a unique experience with a palpable energy that really cannot be described. It's also why many Head-Fier's from other countries in Southeast Asia make the trip to the event, now in it's 3rd year. Of course, we also have many Head-Fier's in North America that travel to the 3 US based events (some even to the international ones) and with all the fun activities surrounding the entire CanJam weekend experience, there are many reasons to plan ahead and make the trip to one of them.
Maybe it's the area's of the website I'm drawn to but Singapore isn't a location I see on here often. Mostly U.S. and Canada by a very wide margin. Other than Chicago Axpona there isn't much going on out here. For me Chicago Axpona was great for speakers but not so much for headphones.
