Hey hey, Buyers.Club! Happy Friday. This week’s newsletter has tons of product and industry news below, so don’t forget to check those stories out! I particularly liked reading this case study — what do fullwhite screens have to do with the Pioneer Zephyr Exhibition in Chicago?
In our first column, “#DearVendor Podcast and Higher Ed: Speaking Directly to the Industry,” Scott Tiner gives us an overview of his #DearVendor podcast. One listener said the podcast was like “eavesdropping on higher ed tech managers who are talking amongst themselves.” Take the opportunity to go back and listen to the recent episodes if you’ve missed out on them — and reach out to Scott if there are future things you’d like him to discuss or that you want vendors to know.
“The Changing Face of the Corporate Workspace” discusses just how much workspaces have had to change due to the pandemic. Adam Cox discusses the future of the corporate workspace, the challenges we have had to overcome and the possible answers that technology can give us.
Find all this and more in this newsletter, AV pros and fans! P.S., did you get a chance to watch any ISE 2021 Digital sessions? Not to fear — find a recap here. I hope you have a great weekend, and see you next time!

That is exactly the point of the podcast.
