Justin Kennington, president, SDVoE Alliance, shares his tips for InfoComm first timers and highlights why we should stop by the organisation’s stand.
What are you most looking forward to at this year’s show?
Officially? Hearing from more than 20 SDVoE member companies on the SDVoE 20/20 stage, where topics will range from ‘the matrix transformed’ to case studies, to network designs. Personally? I’m looking forward to the SDVoE members-only networking event and the private race track we have reserved.
What advice would you give a first-time visitor to Orlando?
First-time visitors to Orlando might want to book extra time and bring the kids (or not) to visit some of the myriad theme parks – SeaWorld, Universal, Disney, or my personal favourite Legoland. First-time InfoComm attendees should definitely take advantage of all the educational opportunities offered by manufacturers and industry associations including the SDVoE Alliance.
Why should we stop by your stand?
The SDVoE Alliance will feature industry experts presenting 20-minute, in-booth education sessions on a variety of topics essential for system integrators, designers, consultants, installers and manufacturers who want to understand how SDVoE is transforming the AV matrix. Our SDVoE 20/20 sessions were a hit in Vegas last year, with hundreds of people participating and we’ll be back with an even more exciting and extensive programme in 2019 – attendees can choose from more than 20 different sessions, invest 20 minutes to learn about important topics in easily digestible chunks, and possibly be the one to leave with $20. Presentations will start on the hour and half hour throughout all three days of the show. Topics will include high-profile case studies, AV networking guidelines, AV/IT convergence considerations, and much more.
