Hey, everybody! Sorry to hit your inbox so late on a Friday, but we just wrapped up Digital Signage Day of LAVNCH WEEK 2.0 — so I thought now was the best time to thank all you #AVtweeps who joined today. I had such a blast hosting this week — and it showed!
When I first joined this company (eight months flies by quick), I was worried about finding my place in the industry. Plus — there’s also the fear about whether I could learn the ins and outs fast enough. And trust me, I am still learning every single day! But everyone has welcomed me into AV with open arms. I’m so glad I’m here, and I can’t wait to host more events in the future.
Our fantastic copywriter Leah McCann wrote a handy-dandy wrapup about the day (I know she is speedy and thorough all at once. 10/10.) I also have Mark Coxon, who runs through the good and bad sides of virtual events. Finally — Leah and I wrote an article listing our favorite parts of InfoComm 2020 Connected.
Last thing: We’ve announced our Readers’ Choice Awards! Go ahead and take a look to see who won. Thanks to everyone who voted!
Alright. I have a date with some chicken tenders and a glass of wine I’ll ttyl.
Digital Signage Day was our fifth and final day of LAVNCH WEEK 2.0. With support from our partners Samsung, NEC Display and Epson — and a great partnership with DSE and the DSF — the content from these supporters and our session educators was fantastic today.
2020 is the year of remote everything. It has been a work from home, webinar heavy, travel light year for the whole country and, of course, for us in the AV industry as well. As such, our biggest events of the year have all been canceled or shifted into the ether.
The first-ever virtual InfoComm 2020 Connected was held Tuesday-Thursday of this week, and it was packed with products, education and networking. This was a historic event — the first-ever online version of InfoComm — so we wanted to make sure we were there for it and provided our coverage/insights. Here’s the recap of some of our favorite sessions from InfoComm 2020 Connected.
