Latest headlines: Gary Kayye with advice about InfoComm 2021, Tony Sprando and Kate Couch on AV in countries outside the U.S.
July 27, 2021 | Volume: 12 | Issue: 14
Hi, UCC pros and fans! I hope you had a fantastic weekend. We have a super cool case study this week about virtualized training. You read that right — Wilmington plc launched a state-of-the-art Digital Classroom that provides a remote teaching experience for its worldwide customers, students and members. I highly encourage you to check how they used Barco’s weConnect and how it’s helping Wilmington businesses.
On to our columns! Our first one this week is by our very own Gary Kayye. He’s started a series of pieces to give exhibitors, integrators and distributors (and spectators, of course) an outline on what to expect at InfoComm 2021. From expanding your market to limiting your booth size, this piece is filled with advice. Check out “Part 1: A Simple Expectation of InfoComm 2021” to get the inside scoop!
Our second column is about AV in other countries (specifically outside of the U.S. and Europe). It is easy to forget that every country faces different challenges with AV technology — and has different solutions, too. Kate Couch and Tony Sprando’s piece, “Across The Globe: AV In Other Countries,” gives us an inside look at the differences in AV in other countries, and allows us to see how COVID-19 may have enhanced those differences.
All this and more in this week’s newsletter, #UCCtweeps. I hope you have a great rest of the week, and if you haven’t registered for InfoComm 2021, do it right here. I’ll see you next time!
don’t think we need to review how and why we came to where we are with this year’s event being in late October in Orlando, Florida but, it’s worth noting how this year’s show will — more than any show in the history of our industry — steer the next two years of our businesses. With that in mind, and a lot of still-unknowns due to the brutally obvious, I have decided to publish a series of recommendations to help us all get the most of our InfoComm 2021 experience — and these will serve both the exhibitors (manufacturers) and the integrators as well as systems designers and distributors, too!
It’s easy to forget that many of the amenities and services we have in the U.S. are also available in other countries. Just because they speak a different language than us or have different customs doesn’t mean they’re not using the same computer. In fact, according to Apple Insider, in 2019, Apple sales went up 2% in Europe in 2019. So what does this mean for AV in other countries?
