AVI-SPL is celebrating InfoComm International's AV Week October 14-20 by giving back to the community.
The company will be hosting a technology contest for nonprofit organizations, charity donation drives, plus spirit days and industry trivia for employees.
"We're very proud to join the AV industry in celebrating our profession this week. It's an exciting time in our industry as organizations are recognizing more and more the dynamic collaborative solutions we offer for increasing productivity and efficiency," said John Zettel, CEO, AVI-SPL. "One of AVI-SPL's key initiatives is to give back to the communities where we live and work, so this year we decided to tie our AV Week activities around that mission."
