Join as the trio Vin Bruno, Gary Kayye, and Victoria Barela talk about Integrated Systems Europe 2017’s motivating management team made up of Vin Bruno with CEDIA, Dave Labuskes with InfoComm, and Michael Blackman of ISE. The pressures of the trade show life is revealed and recent strategic moves are explained revolving around the CEDIA show being sold to Emerald Expositions. The value of education and support for the industry is more important than just showing off the products. Vin Bruno expresses the importance of CEDIA bringing the community of designers, builders, and architects under one roof in order to influence the business for the members, expanding the show to other markets in order to marry architecture and technology. With various markets coming together at ISE, the unity of technologies will nurture the AV integration of smart cities and smart homes. Anything that can be connected, will be connected, and having a crossover of the residential and commercial market will grow the AV community.
