ISE Kickstarter Preview

In less than a week we are headed to Amsterdam to cover Integrated Systems Europe. AVNation has been blessed to be a media sponsor of ISE as well as being sponsored by a number of great AV professionals who see value in what we are doing using Kickstarter. So, here’s what we have going on.
We got a booth. How did that happen? In all seriousness, this was an unexpected blessing that came out of nowhere. As part of our media partnership we have been granted a 3 m x 3 m booth. Our booth number is 7-R160. Here you will find George Tucker, Chris Neto, Bill O’Donnell, or myself at any given time during the week. We will have AVNation lip balm, information on the site, and a video preview of AVNation for those that are not familiar with us.
AVTweeps Tweetup
We are partnering with HDBaseT to bring another Tweetup to ISE. A Tweetup is a great networking event for those AV pros who interact on Twitter and other social media to meet IRL (in real life). There will be food, drink, and plenty of business cards passed around. I’m looking forward to meeting a number of folks I have followed and communicated with for over four years now. It’s free, but you can register here-*and let us know you’re coming.
AVWeek Live
Thursday 12 February from 2 – 3 pm local time we will be recording a live and in person episode of AVWeek. It will take place in our booth, 7-R160. This is our weekly wrap up of news and information. Just like we have done at InfoComm and CEDIA, we will gather some great AV professionals from ISE and get their take on the show and the state of the industry.
That’s all we have. I’d like to say thank you, again, to our Kickstarter team. They came through in a huge way. If you’re going to ISE, we hope to see you there. If you’re not, come back to AVNation for some great coverage of the world’s biggest AV show.
Thanks for taking the time to read my blog. Have a great week.
On-The-Road VLOGS
For those of our Kickstarter sponsors, we will have a “super secret” page. Here you will get the behind-the-scenes videos, blogs, and audio from the show and from our travels. I will be travelling by myself but George, Neto, and Bill are all on the same flight out of JFK. That is where the real entertainment value will be.
Air BnB Shows
After each day’s events, booth tours, writing, and meetings we will produce a short show for our Kickstarter supporters. This will be our take on what we think of the products and companies we have met that day. It will also give you a sense of the living arrangements. I’m not sure if there will be a bunk bed but, lord, I hope so.
Preview of the SWAG
We will also post pictures of the SWAG you all have coming as we get it in. Still waiting on the tshirts, but they are really cool and I think you’ll be happy with them.
A FAQ on this page. Not reall “frequently”, but I will post questions from you, our supporters, about the show or a specific product. Then we will then post the answers to those questions. In that way, you all can learn from each other.
