InfoComm 2023 is less than three weeks away — and it’s the most talked about topic in the ProAV industry right now. That’s why InfoComm 2023 was the focus of our May Temperature Check.

The first question we asked you, our readers, was “What is your interest in attending InfoComm 2023?”

What is your level of interest in attending InfoComm 2023And it should come as no surprise that nearly 78% of you are “Very Interested” in attending this year’s event with just slightly under 6% saying they are “Not Interested”.

When asked about the interest-level of the ProAV industry in this year’s show, David Labuskes, CTS, CEO of AVIXA (producers of the show) said: “This year’s show will have amazing technology, unique experiential components and partnerships with organizations bringing education and insights that you won’t see anywhere else under one roof at one time. If ever there was a ‘can’t miss’ InfoComm, 2023 is it.”

On Gary Kayye’s LinkedIn, we asked industry pros how important it is to attend in-person events like InfoComm 2023. Sixty percent of respondents said it was “Extremely Important” and the remaining 40% responded with “Somewhat Important”.

“Events like InfoComm are critical to our industry’s success,” said Hailey Klein, director of marketing and communications at the PSNI Global Alliance. “Our Certified Solution Providers are located around the globe and gathering at industry events allows us to spend time face-to-face with each other, our vendor partners and the entire industry. We can discover the latest technological innovations, exchange ideas and enjoy social time with our industry friends.”

Close to 17% of you aren’t planning on attending the show, but the rest had a variety of reasons for attending. The least popular reason for attending (2.7%) was to attend educational sessions and workshops. Networking and discovering new technologies had the exact same percentage — 16.7%. The majority of you (47.2%), however, are attending for all three of those reasons.

“Personally, I’m counting down the days to this year’s InfoComm,” said Jeremy Caldera, CTS-D, CTS-I, executive vice president at Pearl Technology. “I truly enjoying teaching the CTS prep class and I’m always happy to see my fellow AV professionals expanding their knowledge base at the show. Nothing beats the new technology on the show floor… except maybe networking with my peers, especially at the annual AVRaoke event!”

Lastly, we asked #AVTweeps what types of products they’re most interested in seeing at the show and asked them to check all that apply. The results were split pretty evenly across all categories, which included audio equipment, video equipment, control systems and collaboration tools. Plus, there were plenty of write-in votes for categories like artificial intelligence, lighting and “the cool stuff nobody thinks about.”

“I’m really excited to attend InfoComm 2023! It’s the top show in the U.S. for discovering new AV products and keeping up with the latest technology trends,” concluded Brian McClimans, VP sales, North America and APAC, Peerless-AV. “As InfoComm attendance continues to grow, we’re eager to make new connections with other AV professionals and reunite with old friends. The whole team at Peerless-AV is looking forward to experiencing everything in person and together.”
