Raise those hands high if you attended InfoComm 2022! It was a whirlwind of a week. I met so many of you, got to chat with so many of you about the industry and I feel like I’ve — once again — learned so much. Thank you for making this my best InfoComm yet!
For our columns this time, I wrote a little about my InfoComm expectations. You can catch our rePLAY event tomorrow, where I’ll talk about which of my expectations were right and wrong.
For our other column, I included one from Scott Tiner. Maybe you didn’t attend InfoComm this year. Maybe you are looking for the right way to ask your boss/supervisor to attend in the future. If so, Scott Tiner has some advice for getting support for professional development.
Don’t forget: All our InfoComm coverage lives at ravepubs.com/infocomm2022. So go on now — search those videos! And our rePLAY InfoComm event starts tomorrow at 11 EDT and lasts until Thursday. Be there or be square!
Hello everyone! I feel like I was just writing to you all about InfoComm 2021, and now we’ve officially made it to #InfoComm22. I’m so excited to be here! There really is nothing quite like getting to run up to the people you’ve gotten to know quite well (thanks to videoconferencing) and talk in person!
Over the past few weeks, and every time trade show season rolls around, there’s a lot of discussion about paying for training, particularly in-person training. In fact, just recently I was taking part in a group discussion about training vs. travel budgets. In higher ed, the many schools I was speaking with had their training budget restored. In some cases, however, the partnering money for travel had been cut, or at least the institution was asking more questions about this expense, and why a remote conference would not be suitable. How does one go about convincing a boss who is on the fence to spend money on training?
