With more than 450,000 square feet of paid exhibit and special event space confirmed at the Anaheim Convention Center, InfoComm 07 is set to once again break records. More than 800 exhibitors will be on hand for upwards of 28,000 attendees, including commercial AV professionals, technology managers, chief information officers, and procurement personnel from 80 countries.
"InfoComm 07 is the largest commercial AV show in the world, and is filled with integrated AV applications," said Randal A. Lemke, Ph.D., executive director, InfoComm International. "InfoComm also allows unparalleled access to manufacturers training, education sessions taught by top industry experts, and great special events and peer-to-peer networking opportunities. Demands for AV technology have grown dramatically in the education sector, due to new classroom construction and reliance on distance learning. Governments and businesses are increasingly dependent on our command and control centers and networked conference rooms. Houses of worship rely on us to keep congregations engaged. InfoComm 07 attendees will experience the largest and most dynamic InfoComm ever."
This year the mix of events expands to include CABA's Intelligent Buildings Leadership Forum, to be held June 18 in conjunction with InfoComm 07; the new Immersive Audio Experience, featuring real-world multi-channel audio environments in two fully integrated exhibits on the show floor; the AV Systems Rack Integration Challenge, where system integrator teams compete in a 24-hour contest to design and build a fully operational AV system; and the Digital Signage Application Showcase, created in conjunction with Spinitar, which will educate attendees on industry-specific applications utilizing digital signage.
InfoComm is often praised by attendees and exhibitors as the "can't miss" technology show of the year because of the ability to interact with all segments of the industry in just a few days, while having the opportunity to attend over 250 educational sessions, including Syn Aud Con and EASE audio training, a hands-on AV/IT class designed to bridge the gap between AV and IT workers, and the only AV-specific project management training with Microsoft Project training. Additionally, Technologies for Worship brings 44 sessions, including eight pre-show programs and an All Day Hands-On Audio Mixing Workshop, and the Imaging Science Foundation Commercial Calibration and Certification Course will teach the science of light and color and how the human eye reacts to the images it sees. AV Technology Tours will also allow attendees to see installed AV projects in action.
