In the pro AV industry, expansion is all the rage for the integration companies who can pull it off. But sometimes, manufacturers expanding abroad is just as important to the industry. NEC Display Solutions and audio products manufacturer QSC recently made AV news with their big moves in different continents.

In addition to the recent hire of Jorge Dantas, Senior Director for Latin America, NEC has also added Bruno Tavares, Channel Manager for Brazil and Sales Manager of Digital Cinema for Latin America, Jorge Garcia, Sales Manager, South Latin America (Peru, Chile, Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay and Argentina), and Roberto Böttger, Marketing Manager, to its Latin American team since October 2017.

This marks a doubling of company employees dedicated to Latin American markets.

Though no specific data is available regarding the region’s general AV-related growth, AVIXA’s 2017 pro AV Industry Outlook and Trends Analysis (IOTA) global outlook predicts global AV revenues will increase 4.7 percent annually through 2022. [related]
