AV Week spotlights the role of AV professionals who stage events, amplify music and speeches, design, and integrate sound systems and displays into public spaces from hearing rooms and boardrooms to campuses and control centers.
Infocomm will sponsor other events to raise awareness for the industry as part of AV Week. These include behind the scenes AV tours of the American Airlines Sports Center, Dallas and The Shedd Aquarium, Chicago; a videoconference connecting hospitals in Orlando and Houston illustrating the use of AV in telemedicine; and participation in the CareerBuilder job fair in Washington, DC.
InfoComm members across the country will reach out to communicate the value of AV in our lives with tours, speeches and open houses. For a complete calendar of events, see www.avweek.org/calendar.cfm.
