  • Mike Blackman, director of Integrated Systems Europe, gives us a guide to ISE for beginners who want to maximize their time on the show floor

  • Craig explains why integrator SVT is poised for at least one acquisition per year for the next five years (and apologizes for “killing someone off”)

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 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 industry.

Podcast Release Schedule

We plan to release a shorter, single-topic episode once every week or two on Fridays. 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 (just like this episode).

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