Oggi è diventato un mezzo per vedere in quale velocità la tecnologia ha cambiato il mondo - quando Accordions Worldwide ha iniziato soltanto una fabbrica aveva l'e-mail e nessuna un sito Internet. Che importante cambiamento nel mondo della fisarmonica in appena 10 anni! La ditta Borsini Fisarmoniche era il primo cliente di Accordions Worldwide !

Da quando Accordions Worldwide ha iniziato i lettori sono diventati sempre più numerosi ed ora oltre 50.000 navigatori interessati alla fisarmonicain consultano il gruppo di siti di Accordions Worldwide ogni settimana. Dieci anni fa era un sogno trasmettere informazioni a cosi tanti fisarmonicisti ed il numero dei visitatori continua a crescere fortemente.

Il modo di usando Internet per fornire i servizi ed informazioni gratuiti per fisarmonicisti di tutto il mondo mondo è ora presente e rimarrà ed il nostro mondo della fisarmonica è cambiato positivamente per sempre.
Ten years ago, on October 1st 1996, Harley Jones has stared the Accordions Worldwide Internet Site after many months of preparation by a team of people, to include the Accordion Yellow Pages, many hundreds of pages of history, information and articles about the accordion, and for the Opening Day, the first “The Squeeze” accordion news.

The news was going to be monthly, but changed immediately to weekly with all issues kept online permanently published. Past news is very popular reading today, and the news grew from one language to 7 languages.

It is a measure today of just how fast technology has changed the world - when Accordions Worldwide started only one factory had email and none had an internet site. What a MASSIVE change in the world of the accordion in just 10 years!

The Borsini Accordions became the first internet client of Accordions Worldwide.

Since Accordions Worldwide started, readership has grown strongly and now, over 50,000 interested accordionists come to the group of websites each week. Broadcasting to so many accordionists was just a dream 10 years ago and now its a reality, with the numbers continuing to grow strongly.

The principle of using the internet to provide popular free services for accordionists around the world is here to stay and our accordion world is changed positively forever.
