Associations Focus: InfoComm Releases January Economic Snapshot Survey

Finds modest drop in the InfoComm Performance Index
InfoComm International has released its January Economic Snapshot Survey. The purpose of the report is to determine how those in the AV industry perceive their company’s performance and overall health. The survey employs a tool called the InfoComm Performance Index (IPI), which assesses company performance of the past six months and expected performance over the next six months. Performance is rated on a 1 to 10 scale, where 10 represents "record growth and profit" and 1 conveys "bankruptcy."
Our January survey shows a modest dip in the IPI over the past six months to 7.08. In September, survey respondents forecast this number to be at 7.10. Looking six months into the future, the 2009 respondents predict an IPI of 6.46. This would put the IPI into the high end of the "fair" range.
