Our Take on Infocomm 2018

InfoComm has drawn AV pilgrims every year for quite some time. This year, the event has been completely reimagined. The people at AVIXA wanted to change the meaning of “trade show,” and they did. With an unprecedented increase in exhibitors and attendees, InfoComm has made its mark on the AV industry. At Pro Presenters, we love to keep up with AV trends and the latest technologies to make sure our clients get the best of the best- and the #1 spot for this is Infocomm!

Many exhibitors from many different destinations flocked to Las Vegas for InfoComm, which went from the 2nd through the 8th of June. Center Stage had around 30 sessions in 3 days, including presentations by people from all different facets of the AV industry, and even some outsiders, bringing a wide variety of perspectives of the AV world into the show. The large quantity of a wide range of programming let the people at AVIXA make the show more of an “integrated experience” rather than a run-of-the-mill trade show. AVIXA were elated by the progress they were able to make with InfoComm. Rachel Bradshaw, an employee at AVIXA, said Center Stage was “the absolute coolest program [she’s] ever had the opportunity to be associated with.” Center Stage was certainly a hub in the massive amount of AV creativity.

However, the main stage was not the only hotspot at InfoComm. AVIXA made great use of Las Vegas as a destination, using many of the city’s famous spots to host a plethora of events for the attendees, like the Hakkasan Group Night Clubs and the Luxor. Altogether the workshops were around 200, never letting the show stagnate. AVIXA correctly assumed that thousands would take advantage of the workshop package. All of these workshops came together to make InfoComm’s experience the fullest it has ever been for the largest group of attendees the show has ever had.

For us at Pro Presenters, InfoComm is always a hit. This year there were more events and attendees, more creative and engaging exhibitions, and a wider range of workshops and classes. The success of the event is reflective of the growing capability and modernity that the AV industry offers, and AVIXA did a great job of showcasing that this year.
