As we approach the midpoint of 2023, NSCA and Commercial Integrator plan to update the commercial AV integration channel on measures of its health, while also analyzing emerging opportunities, confronting continuing challenges and exploring adaptations in light of a tumultuous market landscape.

This past January, NSCA and CI teamed up for the 2023 State of the Industry Report, while also collaborating on an accompanying State of the Industry webinar. In both, integration experts tackled topical subjects like supply-chain snarls, high inflation, rapidly increasing interest rates, talent acquisition and retention issues, and the need to shift to services, as well as integration businesses’ status as mission critical. Now, it’s time to see what — if anything — looks different from a few months ago.

Midyear Update on The Health of the Integration Market

This one-hour midyear update webinar, titled “The Health of the Integration Market,” will offer up-to-the-minute perspective on topics like these:

  • The odds of an impending recession and whether they’ve increased or decreased
  • Whether lead times have materially changed since our last channel-wide survey in late 2022
  • What ongoing merger-and-acquisition activity in our channel might portend
  • Amid continuing labor-cost escalation, how integration businesses can recruit and retain talent intelligently
  • How integration businesses’ pipelines for 2024 look versus 2023 business activity
