The Daily Raff: ISE 2024 Day 4 Thoughts

Wow. Wowowowowow. The show is officially over. We did it! Our final video count? 2,128. It’s been years since we shot this many videos and I am so impressed with how hard our team has worked to achieve such a feat. Let’s talk about ISE for a second, shall we? The show officially announced that […]

The Daily Raff: ISE 2024 Day 3 Thoughts

Well, somehow we’ve made it to Day Three. And if you’re thinking, “the crowds may have thinned now,” you’re very wrong. The crowds have not thinned in most halls — it’s stayed consistently busy. If you have to get across Hall 3 for any reason, good luck. I actually spoke to Mike Blackman, managing director […]

The Daily Raff: ISE 2024 Day 2 Thoughts

Hello, everyone! Welcome to ISE 2024 and therefore, your ISE 2024 Day Two Daily Raff article. I’ll be honest. Today, I mostly ran around the show floor (quite frequently between Halls 3 and 5) and GOOD LORD. Hall 3 was so packed, you couldn’t move. It was almost like a general admission concert. And maybe […]

The Daily Raff: ISE 2024 Day 1 Thoughts

Hello, everyone! Welcome back to our ISE 2024 coverage and officially Day One of the show! What a first day it has been. I made sure to carve out some time to run around and grab some information on some newly released products, I interviewed executives at Shure, Xyte and Lenovo and I even met […]

The Daily Raff: DSE/LDI Day 1 Thoughts

Hello everyone! You might know me as the managing editor of rAVe [PUBS], co-host of rAVe [TV] or, if you attended DSE and/or LDI 2023, perhaps you know me as that woman who came around and strong-armed you into shooting product videos. Just kidding! I know you all secretly love being the star of a […]

The Daily Raff: CEDIA Expo/Commercial Integrator Expo 2023 Day 3 Thoughts

For the last Daily Raff of CEDIA Expo/Commercial Integrator Expo, I don’t have a ton of new products to show you. I always find it hard to just wander a show floor. What am I supposed to look at? I receive so many press releases before a show that sometimes it’s overwhelming to just walk […]

The Daily Raff: CEDIA Expo/Commercial Integrator Expo 2023 Day 2 Thoughts

I don’t know what it is about trade shows. You’re so tired at the end of the day no matter what! I could be doing a million interviews one after the other or just walking around and seeing all the products for myself. Either way, I’m spent by the time the show floor closes. Let’s […]

Hi, everyone! I’m so excited to provide you with my thoughts on Day One of CEDIA Expo/Commercial Integrator Expo 2023! What a first day it’s been! I have only a few things to leave you with today because it was my day I haven’t had the most time to walk the show floor, but I […]

The Daily Raff: InfoComm 2023 Day 3 Thoughts

WOW. After Day Three of InfoComm 2023, I am SO tired. I have run around from appointment to appointment, stopping to say hi to people and occasionally give a hug or fist bump but good LORD it has not felt like this in so long. I don’t know how often I can repeat that. This […]

The Daily Raff: ISE 2023 Day 4 Thoughts

Wow. And just like that, the show is over. I really can’t believe it. I’ve focused heavily on products and solutions the past few days, and I’ll still mention a couple of things, but today I really want to talk a little more in-depth about exactly what goes into this show. As you can see […]

The Daily Raff: ISE 2023 Day 3 Thoughts

I’m baaaaaaaaack and ready to report from Day Three! I can’t believe the show is 3/4 of the way over. I’ve had such a great time and even saw a few friends on the show floor. If you’re new here, this trade show column series used to be called “Steph Says,” but is now known […]

The Daily Raff: ISE 2023 Day 2 Thoughts

Hello again from ISE 2023! I’m here reporting from Day Two, where I have seen some really great tech! Like yesterday, I spent the majority of my time in halls 2 and 3 (these are where all of the UCC and multitech products are). I’m going to include a lot of that in this piece […]
