What is Knobcon?

Attendees can get their hands on an incredible amount of equipment and talk directly with designers of some of today's most innovative synthesizer products.
Held just outside Chicago, Ill., at the Westin Chicago Northwest in Schaumburg, the entire event takes place under one roof. Enthusiasts travel from all parts of the world to attend this yearly event. Direct access to all major forms of transportation make this an easy destination for those traveling.
