Technological advances are creating opportunities that are almost inconceivable in scale, believes David Labuskes, executive director and CEO, InfoComm International.
So much so that innovations in video and audio technology, advances in digital signage and the maturation of control systems, he says, “are leading us into an arena that is so much broader than what has traditionally been defined as commercial audio visual technology.”
He added, “I fundamentally believe that people coming here to ISE 2016 are those who recognise that and are looking for, and finding, the potential that is out there.”
The organisation has placed education at the centre of its ISE 2016 plans with a series of initiatives on and around the showfloor.
“We’ve been trying to find the right format with which to engage visitors with training at trade fairs and we nailed it at this show,” declared Labuskes. “From our professional courses in which delegates can deep-dive into hours of technical content, to our flash training programme, we have educated more people at ISE 2016 in just
the first two days than at any previous ISE show.”
InfoComm had made much of its aim to build a show which generated more business, over more days and with more excitement.
“I don’t think there is anybody experiencing ISE this year that is questioning whether or not we delivered on that promise,” said Labuskes. “The show floor is not only full of people, but full of opportunity and excitement and energy. I couldn’t be happier and
we are proud to be co-owners of ISE with CEDIA.”
