Every year, there's tons to see at InfoComm, and the 2011 edition was no exception to the rule. Between new products being released, new technologies being touted and a new, optimistic outlook for the industry's future that was shared by the thousands of attendees, there was a lot to take in. Here's a few more sights around the floor of this year's InfoComm.

At the International Business Center, InfoComm is promoted its global family of tradeshows under the banner “Where in the World Will You Exhibit Next?” The network is expanding, with new opportunities in Latin America and the Middle East joining established shows in Europe, Russia and Asia.

InfoComm’s Moscow tradeshow, Integrated Systems Russia (ISR), is moving to a larger venue this year due to growing exhibitor demand. Russia will host the soccer World Cup in 2018, and InfoComm is jointly developing a pre-show conference program titled “Innovative Technologies for Sport Facilities” with its local show partner MidExpo.

Jesse Fishman, CTS-D, of Westlake Reed Leskosky, was the winner of InfoComm’s social media contest. Fishman, who had attended the Show before, would have been unable to attend this year due to travel cutbacks, but having won the contest, InfoComm covered his transportation and hotel costs.
