Countdown to InfoComm 2014: Johanne Belanger on the Best of InfoComm

Publish date:

It is always exciting to see the full range of exhibits on the show floor, but there is so much going on before the ribbon-cutting.

InfoComm’s Solutions Summits addressing UCC and Digital Signage technologies gets started on Tuesday, allowing technology managers to hear from industry experts and exchange best practices with peers.

Then Tuesday evening, InfoComm celebrates the best people and programs the AV industry has to offer at the 75th Anniversary Awards Dinner. It’s a great opportunity to recognize industry leaders, talk to contacts, and maybe make some new ones.

I am also really looking forward to the Women in Technology Breakfast on Thursday morning. In addition to networking, we’ll be talking about InfoComm’s STEM education efforts and will learn about the art of communications from a world-class speaker, Sam Horn.

Countdown to InfoComm - What the Largest Exhibitor has Planned for the Show

All trade shows are rife with superlatives that can be difficult to substantiate. But at InfoComm, there is one statistic that can be easily confirmed by a passing glance at the exhibit map: Crestron’s sheer dominance in total square feet on the show floor. Wanting to learn more about the substance within the size of Crestron’s monumental display, I checked in with vice president of marketing Sean Goldstein about some of the technology and ideas that will be highlighted at Orlando’s Orange County Convention Center.

Countdown to InfoComm | Thrown to the Wolves

Imagine beginning your AV career at InfoComm. First of all, it’s three days in Las Vegas. Second of all, it’s in the middle of June. And at first glance, it’s just an oversized convention center filled with a bunch of middle-aged guys hawking black boxes with lots of shiny buttons and cables connecting to other black boxes with lots of shiny buttons.
