Tom Stimson at the Rental & Staging Roadshow in Los Angeles, CA on December 5th, 2007.Over 140 stagers mixed it up with several hundred video production professionals at the Rental & Staging RoadShow in Los Angeles on December 5th. Held in conjunction with the DV Expo (Digital Video Expo) at the Los Angeles Convention Center, it was a good opportunity to assess the big picture in the video world, as well as see demos and new products from video to rental management tools to innovative new screens (including a water-vapor screen).
In addition to the tech sessions at the Roadshow, there were also manufacturer demos, exhibits, networking sessions, and more.
Primary Sponsors for the Roadshow were:
Unique Business Systems
The Roadshow was comprised of technical and business tracks addressing key issues for industry professionals. InfoComm's Rental & Staging Committee chairman Tom Stimson taught classes for the business track, delving deep into issues such as Selling Staging in a Flat World and The ONE Trend That Really Matters.
InfoComm International provided the tech track for the Roadshow, which featured Joel Rollins, presenting New Tools for Show Planning, a guide to the use of inexpensive software and internet tools to deliver a show plan that works, impressing clients and suppliers in the process.
The Roadshow also featured manufacturer training from Barco, Christie, Da-Lite, and Sony.
The Rental & Staging RoadShow is produced by Rental & Staging Systems magazine, working with InfoComm International, to bring product training and business and technical seminars to the rental staging community where they work, in intimate, hands-on settings.
The next Rental & Staging RoadShow will take place in Orlando on February 20, 2008. Details will follow soon.
