Congratulations to Integrated Audio Systems for joining this elite group," said Betsy Jaffe, Senior Vice President of Member Services for InfoComm.
How to Develop Next Generation Leadership
A natural result of growth is the need for more and better managers — including the people who will lead the enterprise in its next generation.

Downey InfoComm Brings AV Education to California School District
InfoComm signed an agreement with Downey Unified School District in Southern California to offer foundational AV coursework.

Live Events
Virtual Reality Could Transform Live Events
Virtual reality (VR) has the potential to transform the way we experience live events. Imagine watching a live concert thousands of miles away from the show and being able to stand on stage with the band. That’s just one example of a VR project companies like Immersive Media Initiative are working on. This special report explores the fast-track VR world and its ability to transport us virtually anywhere.
