AV Junction will arrive at InfoComm 2018 next month in Las Vegas with a total membership of AV freelancers and hiring companies that exceeds 1,000.
Recently, the company completed its first major project in the Middle East and will unveil a software licensing platform in Booth #C4024 in the Las Vegas Convention Center, according to founder Paul Weatherhead.
“The global audiovisual community continues to respond to the AV Junction value proposition,” Weatherhead said in an AV Junction press release.
“We came out of ISE 2018 with a strong surge in memberships and we expect the same to happen at InfoComm 2018, which will mark our first trade show appearance in the United States.”
AV Junction Hiring Service Stats
About 60 percent of AV Junction’s AV freelancers members come from the U.S., 15 percent each from Canada and the United Kingdom and the remaining 10 percent from the rest of the world.
Hiring company membership closely follows at 50 percent from the U.S., 10 percent from Canada, 20 percent from the United Kingdom and 20 percent from the rest of the world.
AV Junction helped a large California-based hiring company fill and complete a major installation in the UAE, says Weatherhead.
The company was able to find the ideal freelancer with the specific skill set needed in less than 24 hours, he says. The project came as a direct result of conversations at ISE.
AV Junction will launch a new software licensing program designed to be white-labeled by the world’s largest systems integration firms at InfoComm 2018.
“It’s designed for the top 20 percent systems integration firms who have told us that they have a network of freelancers but they really need a robust management platform that is really well thought-out from the perspective of both the hiring company and the freelance professional,” says Weatherhead.
“Our new licensing program is going to enable them to better manage their existing network and enable them to tap into our membership of freelancers as their needs dictate.”
