TIP OF THE MONTH
InfoComm 2019 Takes the Industry by Storm
By Peggy Blaze, Account Director
Despite Florida’s dark and stormy weather, InfoComm 2019 shone bright. This year’s show boasted an all-time record of 44,129 attendees and more than 950 exhibitors!
Interestingly, more than 40 percent of this year’s attendees were under age 40 — a good sign that the pro AV industry has a lot of young, creative blood to keep it going strong. As a matter of fact, 312 InfoComm attendees tested to become Certified Technology Specialists (CTS). That was a 23-percent increase over the previous InfoComm record, and 255 passed their exams — 37 percent higher than prior years. It’s great to see such enthusiasm and dedication to our industry.
Other show facts and figures were just as revealing: 283 people attended the AVIXA Women’s Council Networking Breakfast, where Christine Schyvinck, president and CEO of Shure, Inc., presented the keynote; 500 athletes participated in AVIXA Foundation’s inaugural 5K Walk/Run to raise funds for AVIXA to create programs to attract students to careers in AV; and the Florida sun finally decided to come out on Saturday morning, June 15 at 6 a.m., 14 hours after InfoComm 2019 closed.
InfoComm might be over, but our work is never done in this fast-paced industry. Before we know it, the next show will be here! Whether it’s CEDIA, LDI, CES, WFX, NAB NY, or ISE, let InGear help make your tradeshow investment a great one with show ramp-up marketing campaigns, press releases, and contribution to industry thought leadership articles, or perhaps by securing one-on-one meetings with editors and influencers who bring valuable media attention to your company and solutions. Whatever you may need, the professionals at InGear are poised and ready to help!
