AVIXA has announced registration is open for its virtual show InfoComm 2020 Connected, taking place June 16-18. The show will gather thought leaders from multiple ProAV disciplines — and it will host conversations on the opportunities and challenges facing the industry.
Here are a few sneak peeks of what the sessions will include:
- Kay Sargent, senior principal/director of Workspace for HOK, and member of AVIXA’s board of directors, will be joined by Pam Light, senior principal, regional leader of Workplace, HOK, and Adriana Rojas, principal director of interiors, HOK, to discuss what technology experts need to know about the future of workplace design, especially given the current COVID-19 crisis. They will examine technology trends through a design lens, exploring the factors that are spurring the evolution of the workspace.
- In the session, Your Socially Distant Workforce, Joshua Weisberg, president of Navolo Audio Video, Rich Tate, managing director of show services, LMG, and Michelle E. Christian, account manager for EVENTEQ, will discuss how the post-COVID-19 live events environment will require a different workforce deployment than in the past. Event vendors will have to find methods for providing adequate numbers of not only qualified, but certifiably healthy event staff. The conversation will tackle issues, such as what happens if your number one technician is turned away from the job site when they don’t pass the health check?
- Moderator Brock McGinnis, principal, avitaas inc., will be joined by Joe Dunbar, senior account executive, Diversified, and Victoria Ferrari, senior account executive, Conference Technologies, to discuss how the AV industry has stepped up to help communities and businesses continue to connect and prosper during the widespread quarantine. This session will center on how integrators have extended empathy and generosity to their customers during this crisis and how they can rebuild their revenue streams without damaging those relationships as some states and regions begin to reopen.
In addition to the education program, InfoComm 2020 Connected will host a virtual trade show where ProAV companies will present products and solutions in virtual showcases and host live and on-demand exhibitor presentations. There will also be several networking opportunities, including council meetings and the AVIXA Awards ceremony.
Even after the event is over, the program will remain live and accessible until Aug. 21. Register here!
