Get ready for the largest pro-AV event in North America. Hosted from June 6th through June 8th in Las Vegas, this year’s InfoComm will include a thousand exhibitors, thousands of products, and over 40,000 attendees! Whether you’re attending InfoComm or not, you should be paying attention — a lot of exciting information is going to be coming out of this convention.
What’s New at InfoComm?
80 new training sessions have been launched at InfoComm, including both seminars and workshops. An opening reception is going to be free for all attendees and provides a great time to get to know other attendees and network. InfoComm 2018 has been expanded to include additional technologies such as smart homes, smart buildings, and other spaces in which the audio, visual, and control market need to be integrated. At the center stage, there will be some of the latest innovations in AV technology highlighted, as well as new and award-winning designs.
InfoComm is continually expanding in order to take advantage of cutting-edge, best-in-class AV technologies, which have evolved into smart technologies and the internet of things. In addition to technological innovations, TIDE (Technology Innovation Design Experience) will focus on how designers and developers can produce better experiences for their customers through technology.
Products being brought to Infocomm include augmented reality products, virtual reality products, wearable technology, and human-centered user interfaces. These are all new technologies that are now being explored for better integration between users and the platforms on which they work.
