New Technology and Events Thrive
InfoComm 2011 will feature more than 10,000 new audiovisual products, a new IT Services Pavilion sponsored by CompTIA, and a new special exhibit featuring Invisible AV Technologies. In addition, for the first time, the popular Unified Collaborative Conferencing Pavilion will include product demonstrations from all of the vendors in the telepresence field.
Each year InfoComm expands its educational offerings, and this year is no exception, with 70 percent of all classes at the show being offered for the first time. Special first time offerings include classes addressing net-centric AV, cloud AV and live events. Consultative Selling, Integrated Collaboration, Troubleshooting Audio Systems and Project Management for Live Events are all new classes expected to add to the educational experience of this year's Show.
"InfoComm is visited by some of the most innovative people in the world and they attend the Show to see the newest audiovisual technology and to receive world-class education," said Randal A. Lemke, Ph.D., Executive Director and CEO, InfoComm International. "Our new features are one reason why InfoComm is a can't miss event each year."
InfoComm 2011's conference program runs June 11-17. To register for InfoComm 2011, visit www.infocommshow.org. InfoComm 2011 is supported by platinum sponsors Christie Digital, Cisco, Crestron, and Extron and gold sponsors Peerless and Polycom.
InfoComm Announces Dates for First Latin American Tradeshows
InfoComm International and its regional partner Latin Press, are delighted to announce date and venue details for their first two tradeshows in Latin America.
The joint venture's new tradeshow brand, TecnoMultimedia InfoComm, will get its first airing at the International Convention and Exhibition World Trade Center, Mexico City from August 11-12, 2011. This event will be followed on November 9-10, by a similar show at the Plaza Mayor Medellin International Convention Center, Medellin, Colombia.
"After the signing of our agreement to create the TecnoMultimedia InfoComm joint-venture company last month, our Latin American event initiative has made rapid strides and we are really excited at the prospect of hosting these two regional events," said Terry Friesenborg, Senior VP, International Development, InfoComm International.
"Both the Mexican and Colombian shows will give us as the opportunity to present our education offering, to promote our new and existing industry standards, and to publicize the benefits of InfoComm membership—all in front of an audience that is new, dynamic, and open to fresh ideas."
"The Latin American market for professional AV products and services is growing tremendously and offers huge potential to manufacturers seeking new sales opportunities for their products and services," said Max Jaramillo, President, Latin Press. "Our own sales team already has great local market knowledge and, by partnering with us, exhibitors participating at either or both of these shows will get all the support they need."
Last year, around 1,000 AV and facilities management professionals attended the first TecnoMultimedia event in Medellin, where Latin Press hosted 35 exhibition booths. Jaramillo believes that, with InfoComm now onboard as a joint-venture partner, the event will grow quickly.
"The response we had to our initial offering in Colombia last year was overwhelmingly positive," Jaramillo concludes. "In InfoComm International, we now have the perfect association partner not just to take this event to the next level, but also to use it as a platform from which to launch other shows, of which the Mexico City event in August will be the first."
Exhibit sales for both events will be handled by Latin Press. Interested parties should contact Sebastian Fernandez, VP Sales and Operations at +1 305.285.3133, ext. 71 or firstname.lastname@example.org
