InfoComm 2016 Entrance
Growing an Industry Into a Market
About three years ago, InfoComm International® made it part of its strategic plan to start emphasizing that AV pros are really in the business of creating experiences, not just selling products. Companies in our industry embraced the reality of it. InfoComm CEO David Labuskes, CTS®, CAE, RCDD, shares how we plan to take that message to a wider audience.
The Next AV Workforce

It’s exciting to be part of an industry that’s flourishing. New technology develops at a rapid pace, and end users eagerly wait to get their hands on it. One thing that’s slowing us down is a shortage of young talent entering the AV workforce. Learn how InfoComm is taking big steps to incorporate AV education into classrooms around the world.

New Pro-AV Business Index Available
InfoComm’s Pro-AV Business Index┬áprovides a free monthly gauge of the industry’s economic health. It comprises two key indexes: one for monthly billings and the other for industry employment. The latest report takes a look at the end of 2016 and shares different perspectives of the industry’s welfare from around the world.
CTS Training With Delcom
Delcom Group, based in Lewisville, TX, understood the importance of the CTS program, so it set aside three days for employees to take the prep course at its headquarters. Once employees heard of the offer, they were lining up. In this guest blog, Delcom’s Sean Delph shares his advice for companies interested in making a similar commitment.
