Integrate Racks Up Biggest Show on Record – and rAVe was there!

Integrate has come to a close for another year and 2017 saw record numbers of attendees visiting the largest show floor ever.

Integrate 2017 was a celebration of new ideas, an exciting meeting place for industry peers and a first-hand look at what’s next for the industry. The show was held at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre this week.

Event director, Soren Norgaard, said Integrate is now undoubtedly the premiere annual event for the AV industry in the region attracting the very best exhibitors, industry associations, media and attendees.

The level of professionalism rose to new heights this year with the show floor abuzz with state-of-the-art displays, new product launches and Australian debuts.

“The wow factor produced on stands this year is testament to exhibitor’s faith in the Integrate brand and our ability to gain attendance from the people that matter,” he said.

“I’d like to thank everyone involved with the show for making this such an exceptional experience for visitors.

“It takes effort and commitment from so many people – our exhibitors, partners, media and our team, to deliver a show of such high calibre,” said Soren.

Feedback from exhibitors highlighted a next generation of attendees with both AV professionals and end users visiting the show.

“Exhibitors really focussed on the end user markets with big brands such as Samsung, Ricoh, Sony, LG, Crestron and many more highlighting technical expertise displayed within vertical solutions such as Education, Healthcare, Retail and Hospitality,” said Soren.

The Integrate Speaker Series was well attended covering the latest developments and applications in digital content, unified communications and the very latest in AV innovation.

Integrate also partnered this year with both InfoComm and CEDIA further enhancing the prestige of the event.

After a four-year absence from Darling Harbour, the show returns to the new Sydney International Convention Centre in 2018.

“2018 is a milestone for the show with Integrate celebrating its tenth anniversary. The Integrate team will be working hard to raise the bar once again to ensure the show provides an amazing experience for both exhibitors and visitors,” said Soren.
