Last week’s InfoComm 2014 in Las Vegas was visited by 37,048 attendees from more than 114 countries and this represents a 5.5 percent increase in attendance over InfoComm 2013 that was in Orlando, Fla.
We had more than 25 reporters there and covered the show with over 1,300 videos, some 200 or so news stories and blogs and podcasts. We even tweeted over 1200 times. We’ve set up a dedicated InfoComm microsite here.
More than 5,700 seats were filled at InfoComm University sessions, which provided practical training and attracted the industry’s best and brightest instructors and students. Attendees come to InfoComm for the diversity of courses on topics ranging from acoustics to videoconferencing. Popular courses included BYODs: The New Reality, The Future of Video Collaboration, CTS Prep, Designing Classrooms and 4K is Here: Are You Ready For It? With two-thirds of all of the education sessions being new, technology managers flocked to the inaugural InfoComm’s Solutions Summits on UCC and Digital Signage, attracting more than 500 participants.
There were 947 exhibitors participating at InfoComm this year. Exhibitors occupied more than 490,000 net square feet of exhibit and special events space.
Here’s a video that we shot on-site, that gives you a taste of the show and what it was like to attend:
