“Getting in front of more end-customers is a major strategic goal of many of our technology manufacturing members,” says David Labuskes, executive director and CEO of InfoComm International.
Part of the organization’s plan for meeting that goal includes InfoComm Connections, a new series of two-day trade shows aimed at technology managers, in-house technical staff, institutional buyers and end-users.
The first event will take place in Philadelphia, October 22-23, 2014, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, and will feature a combination of exhibits, speakers, industry training and networking opportunities, according to InfoComm.
It will “allow over 2,000 in-house experts, technology managers and other attendees the ability to see a wide range of product demonstrations, attend keynote and training sessions, network and more,” says Labuskes in an Infocomm press release.
The plan, according to the PR, is for InfoComm Connections to feature about 80 exhibitors in 12,000 net square feet of exhibit space, offer InfoComm University training, manufacturer training and “partner group conference offers,”
Registration for the October event will open in July. A second InfoComm Connections is planned for San Jose, Calif., March 4-5, 2015.
InfoComm adds in the PR that with the introduction of these new shows it will no longer host Government integration market focused GovComm, which it launched in 2011.
During GovComm 2013, InfoComm’s David Labuskes talked about the evolving relationship that integration firms have with tech decision makers.
