The AV/IT Summit will take place virtually on Aug. 6 on a highly visual platform that translates the experience of attending a conference to your computer screen.
Who It’s For
The event is programmed to support the business needs of end users (including AV and IT managers, technology directors, CIOs, CTOs, vice presidents of technology and other staff involved in AV/IT technology decisions) and AV integrators (including installers, consultants, architects and technology design practitioners).
What It Is
More than just a series of video sessions, the virtual event will feature most of the same benefits as the in-person AV/IT Summit, beginning with a digital conference lobby complete with exhibitor booths. There will be interactive, engaging panels with subject matter experts from various facets of pro AV, as well as plenty of networking.
Pandemic Forces a Digital Pivot
Following a very successful 2019 AV/IT Summit at Citi Field, home of the NY Mets, this year’s event is taking place virtually due to travel concerns and restrictions on large gatherings put in place in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We firmly believe that August will be too soon for a gathering of 200-plus people in New York City, and we want to ensure the safety of our attendees, speakers, and staff,” said Megan A. Dutta, content director, Systems Contractor News. “On the bright side, having a virtual event will allow us to expand our reach and we invite integrators, consultants, technology managers, and the like from around the country to join us for a full day of education and networking.”
“With the audiovisual industry in its current state of flux, it’s especially difficult to stay on top of all the changes and prepare yourself for what’s next,” said Matt Pruznick, editor, AV Technology. “The AV/IT Summit provides an incisive forum for leaders from all sides of the business to share their challenges, strategies, and predictions. And, more importantly, it unites key players in dialogue about how we can all work together to create more effective solutions.”
