The great thing about InfoComm 2021 was that so many of us were together again in person. But how did everyone else feel about this year’s show? rAVe writer Jennifer Guhl reached out to attendees to see what their takeaways and experiences were. Just like everything else in the pandemic, there are some highs and some lows, but it was mostly highs.
In our second article this time, Scott Tiner writes about what AV can learn from the exercise industry. How can the exercise industry’s use of virtual technology be utilized in the classroom? Let’s be real; HyFlex isn’t going anywhere as long as COVID-19 exists. Let’s see more options for a smooth hybrid experience in the future!

The community finally came back together in Orlando, but how did it go? Everyone went into InfoComm 2021 unsure of what they would experience. When I spoke to attendees before this year’s show, many of them didn’t know who would or wouldn’t be attending, what new technology would be available to see and how the overall experience would be impacted. After the show ended, I connected with a number of those in attendance to find out what they thought and what technology or trends stood out to them at this year’s show.
As we begin to realize that COVID-19 will become endemic, perhaps becoming less dangerous, but never fully going away, we also should realize that these types of choices will continue to need to be made. In October I wrote about how InfoComm, and other trade shows, should embrace those people who make the choice not to attend. This month I have been thinking about other business opportunities that the AV industry could find in this ongoing environment.
