Gary Kayye implores us all to think about the office furniture business. Why? Because Barco’s latest survey indicates that people are ready to return to the office — keep in mind Barco interviewed executives — 62% of respondents, in fact! In Gary’s column about this report from Barco, he says that the survey also indicates that the office is not just a place for desk work anymore. Read more here for other takeaways.
In our other column this time, Murphy Daley writes about her first experience at InfoComm. We all remember ours (mine was 2016). I thought it was so fun to read about her thoughts. What did she expect? What did she learn? What does she want to focus more on next year? Read to find out!
I’ve read Barco’s new survey of 1200 executives across 13 countries to find out how the office is changing and how workspaces are used — and it’s enlightening. My biggest takeaway? The business I want to be in right now is selling office furniture and the tech to support it!
Even though I’ve been in AV for 20+ years, it was not until June 2022 that I attended my first InfoComm in person. To be honest, for the first 15 years in the industry, I was supporting operations for corporate videoconferencing. I had never even heard of InfoComm and the organization that became AVIXA.
