rAVe to LIVE Stream Almo ProAV E4 AV Tour Next Week

almo-newI am excited to announce that we will be streaming LIVE (in HD) both my Kayye’s Krystal Ball Keynote as well as the Tech Expert Brain Freeze Panel (sponsored by NEC Display) during both of the fall Almo ProAV E4 AV Tours; in Irvine, Calif. on Fri., Oct. 18th and in Seacaucus, NJ on Wed., Nov. 13th.

For four years now, I have been honored to deliver the Almo E4 AV Tour keynote and, for four years, we’ve been asked to make it available to people who couldn’t make one of the four tour stops annually.

Certainly, if you’re going to be in the Irvine area on October 18th, you should attend the event live; however, if you’re anywhere else in the world and would like to watch me deliver the keynote at the Almo E4 AV Tour LIVE, all you need to do is open a browser and link to http://go.almoproav.com/e4live — and we’re going to stream it live in HD (H.264 format) for FREE!

Here’s what my keynote is all about:

For 12 years, my Krystal Ball has been one of the most-read annual columns by AV integrators, consultants and manufacturers. Covering the future trends in each technology and product sector, I’ve been able to predict what the future held for projectors, flat panels, VTC, digital signage, signal routing and a plethora of other segments of the market with nearly 90 percent accuracy — proven by simply reviewing his predictions each year.

Kayye’s Krystal Ball will debut as a live keynote at the ALMO E4 Shows. I will not only tell you what will happen in each market category of the next 12 months, but I’ll also look forward and tell you what will happen with everything you market and sell over the next two to three years, too. And, I’ll do it product by product — technology by technology. So, you’ll be able to design all your systems and specify all your products to be future-proof. I promise!

I hope you’ll join me – either live (you can see the entire agenda here.) or watch my live stream here: http://www.ravepubs.com/e4 starting at Noon, EST, on Friday, October 18th.
