Latest headlines: Lee Distad on the low staffing problem in AV right now, Steph Beckett on why you should register for LAVNCH WEEK 6 & more
October 19, 2022 | Volume: 20 | Issue: 39
Lee Distad remarks on a trend in his latest column: low staffing. While Lee normally writes for our rAVe HomeAV side, this column speaks to something larger. No matter what segment of the AV industry you’re in, you’ve probably noticed this change in staffing level — whether it’s been over the past year or even few months. Read more about the return to normalcy post-COVID-19 and what that looks like for staffing and recruitment.
In our other column this time, I implore you to register for LAVNCH WEEK 6 by giving you five solid reasons why you should register. Make sure to check those reasons out and after you do, go register here. You won’t want to miss this content brought straight to your screens Oct. 24-27. Here’s a hint: One of the sessions will feature representatives from two big companies, and they will be addressing supply chain issues. We’re even conducting a survey and using the results to dictate some of the panel questions, so please fill that out too.
That’s about it from me. Don’t forget to check out Nureva’s HDL410, a solid deal from Broadcast Pix in which you could get a free RoboPix PTZ Camera and more.
I knew someone who had to read “Boom, Bust & Echo,” the book by demographer David Foot and journalist Daniel Stoffman, in college. After doing so, they related a factoid — no matter how tenuous — to the thesis of the book every chance they got. Since I feel like I do that a lot too, I try not to be unkind about it. That said, the book’s core — that demographics allow us to forecast future trends — has at least some bearing on a problem that is becoming apparent in lots of industries and sectors: low staffing.
The time has once again arrived, #AVtweeps. LAVNCH WEEK 6 will be here and upon us Oct. 24-27. You’ve likely seen or heard us remark that this will be one of the best live events yet from us — and we’re serious about that! But if you’re still on the fence about why you should attend or what you might get out of it, I’m here to convince you to register.
