With World Wellbeing Week set to take place 27 June to 1 July, and with mental health and wellbeing front and centre after two and a half years of Covid, the June edition of Installation (available below) is the perfect platform to ask the AV industry how it’s approaching this important subject. Our extensive roundtable includes comment from 21 companies – all only too happy to answer our questions. The good news is that, if this industry snapshot is anything to go by, AV is taking the health and wellbeing of its present and future staff very seriously indeed; and has been for some time.
Also in this issue, we report from ISE for the show’s first full debut in Barcelona, and also look ahead to InfoComm, in our extensive preview of pro AV’s Las Vegas June show.
Elsewhere, we take a look at the growing convergence of AV and broadcast tech in the first of our crossover features, and catch up on what’s happening in the retail sector, as hybrid takes on an even more important role after Covid and retailers try to entice us back into high street stores; just as employers try to give us more reasons to come back to the office, while keeping wellbeing in sharp focus.
AV has surely never had a bigger part to play across every area of our busy lives. Enjoy the issue!
