The SDVoE Alliance Announces 2021 Board of Directors

SDvOeThe SDVoE Alliance today announced its 2021 board of directors made up of ProAV experts from the six steering member companies — Black Box, Christie, IDK Corporation, NETGEAR, Semtech and ZeeVee — plus Grandbeing who won this year’s election to represent the contributing member companies. Justin Kennington retains his role as president of the SDVoE Alliance. Heading into its fourth year, the alliance has grown to 51 members shipping over 500 products, and more than 1,300 certified SDVoE Design Partners.

“Despite the challenging year in our industry, we’ve been able to expand our audience reach with two successful in-person trade shows — ISE in February and InfoComm Beijing in September, numerous online events, a network design help program, an online SDVoE product guide and more than 50 new courses in SDVoE Academy,” said Kennington. “We’ve got big plans for 2021 and I’m particularly excited about SDVoE LIVE! Tuesday Talk with AV Pros which launched Dec. 1. We start with ‘an Englishman and a Texan walk into a bar,’ and end with high-quality ProAV education. A new episode airs every other Tuesday at 1 p.m. EST.”
