Las Vegas, NV—InfoComm, AVIXA’s annual convention for the pro AV industry, is moving online in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Called InfoComm Connected, the event will take place June 16–18. The online platform will enable participants to explore products, training, and thought leadership sessions, and provide the opportunity to network with others in the AV industry from around the globe. AVIXA is soliciting feedback from industry professionals to guide the program’s development. To offer your perspective, visit the InfoComm Connected website at www.infocommshow.org/virtual.
At the beginning of April, when AVIXA executives decided to cancel in-person InfoComm events, they explained the difficulty of that decision. “This was not a decision we made lightly but with careful consideration and as advised by public health authorities,” said AVIXA CEO Dave Labuskes, CTS. “Thankfully, we did not have to make it alone and are grateful to our InfoComm community, exhibitor advisory committee, education committees, and so many others who supported our desire to not jeopardize the livelihoods and long-term gains of the industry.
He continued, “InfoComm show management is evaluating the best path forward for bringing the high-caliber, engaging content that InfoComm has come to be known for, and we ask for stakeholders’ patience as we do so. We are committed to exploring all possible alternatives that will bring to light the engaging discussions, industry thought leadership, product information and best-in-class education that our attendees have come to expect from the show.”
