What the Spec?

Why does it feel like it's integrators versus consultants versus IT? This panel will discuss how #AVTweeps can work better together—from the beginning–to create a five-star experience for clients before the first spec is even written.

The Future of Pro AV Technology

Manufacturers discuss new technologies and the impact they'll have on the pro AV industry. They'll tell us what the field will look like in one, three, and five years.

Human-Centered Design

A panel of experts discuss the concept of human-centered design and share how it can help you increase your bottom line.

IoT in AV

As the Internet of Things (IoT) becomes ubiquitous throughout facilities, integrators have an opportunity to expand their portfolio of offerings. This panel discusses IoT from crucial planning with building stakeholders, integration strategies, and service.

Pivot, Pivot, Pivot

COVID-19 forced the pro AV industry to rethink business practices—concerts became drive-ins, empty stadiums were filled with fake crowd noises, the list goes on and on. In this session, AV professionals share lessons learned, new avenues for revenue growth, and how they plan to move forward.
