There’s always a concern that, when a media company like Commercial Integrator is acquired, it’s content will change or it’ll become a corporate shill. We have NO intention of doing that after being acquired by Emerald Expositions this week.

Join us on episode 25 of pro AV podcast, AV+, as we go straight to the source — Emerald’s own senior VP. He reassures listeners that our new company has no plans to change how we do things here at CI.

On Episode 25 of AV+…

  • Commercial Integrator editors Tom LeBlanc and Adam Forziati speak with senior VP of Emerald Expositions, Brian Pagel
  • He tells us that those concerned about EH Media brands being acquired need to know that Emerald Expositions has no plans to change them (in fact, the hope is that we continue to grow with more resources)

Stories Mentioned in this Episode

The Commercial Integrator Podcast

The phrase ‘pro AV’ doesn’t do justice to all of the integration crowd, so we at Commercial Integrator wanted to create a pro AV podcast that speaks to all of those areas (and more!) under the umbrella of commercial tech integration.

The host, web editor Adam Forziati, has a background in radio and is looking forward to providing listeners with an entertaining, informative audio forum for all topics affecting the AV industry.

AV+ Podcast Release Schedule

We plan to release a shorter, single-topic episode once every week or two on Fridays (just like this episode). But at the end of each month, we’ll also drop a longer, in-depth episode of the AV podcast with features like Editor’s Desk, CI Monthly News Spotlight, CI’s Project of the Month, and more.

We hope you’ll share your thoughts on Twitter using the hashtag #AVPlusPod !
