The AV industry has perfected ways to collaborate over long distances, but sometimes there’s no better way to do it than getting people together in one place. And there’s nothing like the experience of a live show. Whether you call your specialty rental & staging or live events, the InfoComm show/conference next week in Orlando is offering a wide variety of activities to help you ramp up your technical and management skills.

InfoComm Awards, Digital Signage for Live Events
For years, I’ve been in charge of both the DIGI Awards, and the InfoComm/NewBay Media Rental & Staging awards. The DIGI’s, you know about– it’s the longest-running, more prestigious awards program honoring excellence in digital signage, on both the applications, and new product side. But for the last couple years– and continuing this year– there is a digital signage category in the InfoComm/NewBay Media Rental & Staging awards.
