Let’s Take Orlando Together

We are a week out from the annual gathering of audio video professionals in the states called InfoComm. This year it is in sunny Orlando, Florida June 14 through the 16. If you are headed to the land of Mickey we have a number of things for you. If you are not and are watching from afar, we have you covered as well. Here are all the things AVNation, and some others, are doing at InfoComm 2017.
Daily Live Shows
A format we started at ISE in 2015 was a daily wrap up show. It was done once the show floor closed and we could give those not in attendance a run down of the best discoveries of the day. We have incorporated this into our coverage of InfoComm as well. At 5 pm ET Wednesday June 14 through Friday June 16 we will be going live. You’ll hear from some of your favorite AVNation hosts about what they are taking away from the show.
Booth Tours and Interviews
A staple for us at tradeshows is bringing you the latest from the manufacturers. We ask what they are showing, why it matters, and how it will impact you on the Monday after InfoComm closes. Our schedule is pretty packed, and our team of working AV professionals is ready to go. As we record, edit, and put together theses pieces you can find them all on our InfoComm 2017 page. 
5th Annual AVNation Tweetup – Wednesday June 14;  4 – 6 PM Room W108A
If you are going to InfoComm make sure to sign up for our annual get together. The Tweetup is what I call a walkthrough party. We get there are other events going on throughout the night. Come through from 4 pm – 6 pm, grab a drink, something to eat, and meet some fellow AV professionals. Then, you’re on your way to the next event.
#FindAVNation Scavenger Hunt
This game is a fun way for you to see some of the show and win some prizes at the same time. It’ll also give you the opportunity to be included in the AVNation AVSelfie video. Go to our #FindAVNation page, check out our underwriters, head to their booths, and take a selfie. Some have products, some don’t. Some of them have prizes all their own. At the end of the week we will take each picture as an entry and you could win one of three great prize packs.
The AVSelfie Video
Speaking of the AVSelfie video, our friend Phil Cordell has created a new song for this year’s video and it is pretty epic. The idea behind the video was to create a “yearbook video” like experience for those attending, and those not able to join us. As you take pictures and selfies throughout the show tag your photos for social media with #AVSelfie. We’ll grab those pics and put them together into a video. The video will debut on our site on Monday June 19. If you want a really “action packed” #AVSelfie, check out Starin Marketing’s photo booth in the food court, or check out their website dedicated to InfoComm.
There are so many more parties, receptions, and get-togethers that I could take up a few more pages. Get together with your manufacturers and friens. There are InfoComm council meetings and committee meetings if you are members of those. If you’re headed to Orlando, we cannot wait to see you there. If not, we’ll be bringing you the best of what our audio video professionals see and hear. Thanks for taking the time to read my blog. Have a great week.
