The AV industry doesn’t quit, even when the world slows down. So when 2020’s biggest AV trade shows started to release their postponement and cancellation announcements one by one, starting as early as February, it was time to expedite the release of a new platform, called LAVNCH — something rAVe has been working for more than a year.
And with that (but don’t worry, there’s more to read later), we’re pleased to share that THE rAVe Agency, rAVe [PUBS] and Zoom Video Communications are gearing up for the AV industry’s first virtual launch event, ever — combining education, product launches and, importantly, industry networking. Think of it as five full days of webinars, new product launch videos, engaging panels, social media discussions and more — all in one place. All you have to do to get in is register here. No entry fees, either. You don’t even have to get off your couch.
LAVNCH WEEK will open on April 27, 2020, and focus on a different industry vertical market each day — including ProAV, digital signage, unified communications and collaboration (UCC), house of worship (HOW), and even a day exclusively for end users. The multiday, all-digital event creates a new opportunity for companies in AV to share new products and education with their clients, dealers, distributors and reps from the comfort of their home — or, really, from anywhere in the world. We’ve been sharing the details of LAVNCH WEEK via our website, blog, social media and newsletters — and, now, here — so, enough of that for now.
Today, we’re excited to share which manufacturer partners will be collaborating with us for LAVNCH WEEK. These partners include (drumroll, please):
Monday, April 27: ProAV Day
- Kramer Electronics
Tuesday, April 28: Digital Signage Day
- LG Business Solutions

Wednesday, April 29: UCC Day
- AVer Information Inc.
Thursday, April 30: HOW Day

Friday, May 1: End User Day
- Intel Unite
- LG Business Solutions
As telecommuting and virtual networking remain the norm, we’re so appreciative of our partners for joining in the first-ever LAVNCH WEEK.
From the beginning, the goal of LAVNCH WEEK has been to build up the AV community and shed a positive light on all the great things our industry is doing, even despite the current (challenging) climate. LAVNCH wasn’t created to replace the invaluable experience we all know trade shows can bring; it was created to fill the void of the events that were canceled/postponed on such short, rapid timelines — which none of us saw coming. We’re confident that LAVNCH will bridge the gap, provide necessary online education (and those valuable CTS-RU credits!) and help our partners remain top-of-mind. But LAVNCH was also created to serve a larger purpose: It was created to give the AV industry a fresh and original space to connect.
Registration for LAVNCH WEEK is currently open and available to industry professionals at no cost. We hope you’ll consider joining us. To learn more about LAVNCH WEEK and to register, please visit https://rave.pub/LAVNCHweek.
