InfoComm to Co-Locate with Buildings Show

Organizers have announced that Realcomm, the annual conference and exposition on technology, automated business solutions, and intelligent buildings for executives in commercial and corporate real estate, and InfoComm, the world's largest audiovisual tradeshow, will co-locate in 2010.

Realcomm, with an expected 80 exhibitors and 1,200 attendees, will be held June 9 and 10, 2010, at the Las Vegas Hilton, alongside InfoComm 2010, with an expected 900 exhibitors and 32,000 attendees at the Las Vegas Convention Center. InfoComm 2010 is scheduled for June 9 to 11.

Over the years, the role of AV in buildings has transformed from stand-alone equipment into complex systems that are integrated into the built environment at the time of construction or renovation. Organizers say that as a result, building owners, CIOs, CTOs, and facility managers have traditionally attended both InfoComm and Realcomm.

"InfoComm strives to provide our attendees with access to a wide spectrum of groundbreaking technologies and educational opportunities," said Randal A. Lemke, Ph.D., executive director of InfoComm International, in a statement. "By having Realcomm co-locate with us, InfoComm attendees can, as always, experience the latest in conferencing, digital signage, audio, lighting and more, while gaining additional value by connecting with leading vendors in building automation."

Realcomm registrants will receive complimentary access to the InfoComm 2010 Show floor, and the close proximity will make it easier for attendees to participate in valuable education sessions offered at both events.

"The strategic significance of this co-location should not be overlooked," said Jim Young, CEO and co-founder of Realcomm Conference Group LLC, in a statement. "The bottom line is that all systems will inevitably be run over one standard IP network. The faster we get our property, facility, energy, audiovisual, data, and phone networks onto one network, the faster we will be able to achieve the efficiency and innovation that the 21st century will require of buildings."

Officials said consideration was given to enabling attendees to save money by traveling only once to both events, particularly in a struggling economy. "Combining shuttle buses and other fixed expenses will also help us benefit from economies of scale," said Lemke.

Registration for InfoComm 2010 will open in early February at www.infocommshow.org. Registration for Realcomm is now open at www.realcomm.com. Organizers said that companies interested in returning to sponsor or exhibit at either event should contact the organization that it has traditionally been affiliated with. New exhibitors may contact either group for more information.
