Almo Professional A/V, in partnership with InfoComm International, has
announced additions to its next E4 AV training and networking event,
which will take place in Washington, D.C., on May 18. Additions include
the involvement of Women in AV (WAVE) as a new presenter; new courses
from Planar, Cables To Go, Samsung and Brawn Consulting; and product
debuts from NanoLumens and Chief. During this event, Almo will also
present the first E4 Education Ambassador award to Dr. Randy Lemke,
executive director and CEO of InfoComm.
“With our E4 D.C. event
taking place only a few weeks before InfoComm, many of our exhibiting
manufacturers are taking advantage of this time to preview new products
and topics that will be formally launched in June,” explained Sam
Taylor, executive vice president and COO for Almo Professional A/V.
“Also, we welcome the WAVE group as our newest E4 presenter. Founder
Jennifer Willard will lead a class about the new Women in AV mentoring
program, which focuses on opportunities for the development and
empowerment of women in AV.”
Taylor noted that the “E4 Education
Ambassador” award recognizes an individual who has worked to help
fulfill the E4 AV Tour’s mission of providing high-quality
CTS-accredited education to the AV industry. The award will be presented
to Lemke at 2:30 p.m. E.D.T. in the main E4 exhibit hall.
