If there’s any good news these days across the AV integration industry, it’s that the future is in some impressive and hard-working hands.
This year marks the seventh year we’ve put together a collection of young superstars across the integration world and this year’s list features some of the youngest people we’ve ever had—including a high school sophomore who spent his free time at InfoComm 2020 Connected.
As with previous years, this year’s 40 Influencers Under 40 features stand out individuals from integrators, programmers and consultants as well as a few people we just couldn’t keep out of the mix.
In an industry that’s been filled with a lot of tough news to swallow since mid-March, please make sure you take time to celebrate this moment of positivity and get to know as many of the people on this list as you can. They represent the future of the AV and IT space—and that’s a good thing.
Congratulations to all 40 of this year’s influencers. They join an impressive club that features plenty of alumni who have taken over the industry in many ways. We expect the same from this group.
