Copenhagen High End Show has been a success in Denmark since the first show in 1997. For many years since the beginning of the show, it has been a strong indication of the large Danish high end industry. Prominent companies like Dynaudio, Vitus, Densen, Audiovector, System Audio and many others are among the brands who have often launched new exciting products on the show. In the later years, the show has been located near Copenhagen Airport, making it an easy access not only for Danes to attend, but also for international guests who can fly in, as well as for Swedes, as the bridge between Sweden and Denmark is only 2 kilometres away from the hotel. This has resulted in a large increase in the quantity of Swedish spectators to the show, but also in attendance from both Norwegian and Swedish high end manufacturers, one of the most stable being Hegel, who has been attending the show over the years. The show also spots several international audio leaders, among them is Ken Ishiwata from Marantz.
