InfoComm 2022 will host Integrated Experience Tours around Las Vegas. Attendees can see AV deployments in the real world and also hear from the creators behind them. The tours include the University of Nevada Las Vegas, Arcadia Earth, Resorts World Las Vegas, Illuminarium Experiences, Las Vegas nightclubs, and Meow Wolf’s Omega Mart and AREA15. InfoComm, held by AVIXA, is the largest technology exhibition and conference in North America focused on the pro AV industry.
“The week of InfoComm allows you to explore pro AV solutions from many vantage points – talking with experts, seeing the technology up close, and experiencing the pro AV installations in the real world,” adds Rochelle Richardson, CEM, senior vice president of expositions and events, AVIXA. “This year’s tours will showcase remarkable pro AV in a wide range of environments around Las Vegas — from nightclubs to art installations to classrooms. We’re excited for attendees to find inspiration from these exciting sights.”
On the University of Nevada Las Vegas tour, attendees will explore the Flora Dungan Humanities building’s 254-seat theater/classroom. This classroom features a Dolby Atmos immersive audio experience and a 4K Barco cinema laser projection system. The tour is led by Frank Alaimo, CTS-I, DMC-E-4K, senior AV systems specialist at UNLV. It will also showcase the university’s hybrid learning classroom solution, RebelFlex.
Experiential artist and founder of Arcadia Earth Valentino Vettori will then lead a behind-the-scenes look at the technology used to create the immersive storytelling journey of Arcadia Earth. Guests will experience the innovative uses of these tools in creating an impactful interaction with the climate challenges. These tools include motion picture projections, projection mapping along with extended reality and laser technology.
Meanwhile, the tour of Resorts World Las Vegas will take attendees on a pro AV exploration of this new $4.3-billion property. Yago Pita Alvarez, executive director of entertainment for Resorts World Las Vegas, will lead the tour of the Zouk Nightclub, Ayu Dayclub, theatre, outdoor screens and more.
InfoComm 2022 will also host an exclusive tour of Illuminarium Experiences. This will allow visitors to immerse themselves in the world’s natural wonders, cultural moments and beyond. This immersive experience is powered by 4K interactive projection, 360-degree audio, in-floor vibrations and scent systems. The tour will be led by Calum Pearson, EVP and general manager of Illuminarium Experiences.
A tour of Las Vegas nightclubs will also take attendees through JEWEL, Hakkasan, and Omnia. Here, they will see how each showcases their style of audiovisual guest experiences, from automation to lights, visuals and sound. Attendees will thus learn firsthand from the technicians that work with some of the top artists in the world. Gerardo Gonzalez, senior director, technical services for Tao Group Hospitality, will lead this experience.
In addition, a tour of Omega Mart will take visitors inside the interactive art installation created by Meow Wolf. The installation features contributions from over 300 artists. It begins in a supermarket and leads to a network of media-rich spaces and storytelling that comments on consumerism and corporate culture. The tour also looks at the technology that powers the Portal at AREA15. AREA15 is a 4K, 360-degree 3D floor-to-ceiling projection-mapped indoor event space. This tour is led by AREA15’s JD Bouck, director of production, and Jacob Roeber, senior production manager.
