For the uninitiated…

InfoComm International is the trade association that represents all of the professional audiovisual and information communications industries in the world. In keeping with its status as an organization with global reach, InfoComm holds massive annual conferences to encourage networking, collaboration, and business between vendors, buyers, and other industry professionals.  This year’s edition of the InfoComm Conference takes place June 14-20 (with the exhibitions taking place between June 18-20), in Las Vegas. We at CBCI Telecom are really excited to be attending – and not just because it’s an excuse to visit one of the meccas of tourism!

InfoComm2014

Cutting-edge AV and communications technology from 950 companies – in one place!

Readers of this blog know just how much enthusiasm we have for new technology. And now, we have the prospect of getting first-hand, hands-on demos of the absolute latest AV and unified communications technology from 950 companies in one convenient (and absolutely giant) venue!

These are some of the companies whose booths we’ll be checking out:

Sharp – Booths C7418, C4740 – It looks like Sharp will be showcasing its business displays and interactive touchscreens. That’s pretty awesome in itself, but what really catches my eye is the fact that they’ve got TWO booths at the event. That sounds pretty enticing… Better go on over and check it out yourself!

Samsung – Booth C6319 –  Samsung has too many InfoComm offerings for me to easily list them here. Check out their InfoComm page for more information, and be sure to give them a visit!

SMART Technologies – Booth N2947 – SMART is launching its new SMART kapp product at InfoComm 2014Do you know why kapp is a big deal? It’s because kapp will let you draw, write, and digitally capture all of your ideas just by using dry erase SMART ink markers. You’ll be able to work the way you would with dry-erase boards, with the added bonus of being able to instantly save it to PDF instantly.  

AMX – Booth C4908 – AMX is so excited about showing off their products that they’re offering free passes to the InfoComm show floor. All you have to do is click here, follow the instructions online, and when prompted, enter the AMX VIP code: AMX719.

There are many, many, many more, of course! Make sure you check and see where your favourite companies are displaying by consulting this interactive map/directory!

Beyond demos…

Demos will clearly be the biggest, tangible draw of this event. However, there will also be many seminars, presentations, and special events on hand. Attending and/or taking part will bring you a wealth of new information, contacts, and best of all, ideas on how to improve your AV and communications setups for your organizations. At least half the value of InfoComm Conferences will be in these events – don’t miss out!
