In January, we asked the readers of rAVe which trade shows around the world matter enough for them to attend. As most segments of the ProAV industry continue to grow as our world economy finally starts its recovery, there are clear segments of commercial AV that are benefitting — for example, the digital signage, government and rental/staging segments.
And trade shows stand to benefit in 2014. In the U.S., both InfoComm and CEDIA came up as the two biggest beneficiaries of our survey when we asked ProAV’ers which trade shows they plan to attend in 2014 here in the United States. And, internationally, the big winners were ISE (Integrated Systems Europe) and IBC — both in Amsterdam, coincidentally.
