Asia and Oceania
October is AV Month, a time for the AV community to celebrate, promote and share our industry with the world. As AV is just beginning to take off in many parts of Asia, the need to raise awareness of our field is greater than ever.
When it comes to advancing the voice of our industry, each of us has a part to play, whether it’s sharing project stories with local media, hosting architects on an installation tour, or giving a seminar to university students.

Huge Increase in Demand for InfoComm Education at Integrate
Last month, Integrate 2016 in association with InfoComm lowered its curtains after three packed show days in Sydney. With a total of 5,575 visitors, the show saw a 4 percent increase in attendance compared to the previous year. InfoComm’s education programme was more successful than ever before, with a huge increase in session attendees and our recently launched FlashTrack format proving to be particularly popular.
In addition, more than 38 attendees defied Sydney’s rain showers in the early morning of day two to gather at the Women of InfoComm Network breakfast, and discuss the important role of mentorships.
If you have a suggestion for a future seminar topic or want to find out how to become a volunteer session presenter within our education programme, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you next year in Melbourne!
