InfoComm International is launching a new show this fall aimed at helping those who run systems integration and design consulting businesses to deal with the challenges associated with building and scaling their companies.
The AV Executive Conference and Golf Tournament is set for Sept. 10-12 at the Ritz Carlton in Amelia Island, Fla.
“The AV Executive Conference provides an ideal opportunity for industry leaders to come together and discuss both the promise and challenges of doing business in today’s uncertain environment,” says David Labuskes, InfoComm executive director, in a press release announcing the event, which is paired with an optional charity golf tournament to benefit InfoComm’s foundation, ICIF.
“InfoComm prides itself on providing valuable education and networking opportunities to industry leaders and this AV Executive Conference is a logical next step to augment our business offerings as a complement to our robust technical offerings,” says Labuskes.
Speakers will address “the formation of strategic relationships, change management, adaptive innovation and disruptive technologies,” according to the press release, as well as “the changing economic and political climate and its impact on the A/V industry.” The conference will have ample time for networking and idea exchanges, always a key piece of bringing some of the industry’s brightest minds together for a few days.
Conference attendance is $895 for members and $1,095 for non-members, with a $100 discount for registrations received by Aug. 5.
