Named the CI BEST Training, Consulting/Business Service for the fourth year in a row, and a recipient of the SCN 2017 Stellar Service Award, the E4 program offers AV professionals a full day of educational sessions worth AVIXA CTS Renewal Units (RUs) as well as exclusive access to the newest AV products and services.

“With more than 600 registered, a packed exhibit floor and standing-room only classes, last week’s E4 event in New York was one of our liveliest since the tour began in 2009,” said Melody Craigmyle, vice president of marketing for Almo Professional A/V. “We intend to keep the momentum going as we move the tour across the nation and spend the day with our partners in the Irvine area on October 3. Some of the highlights include a livestream of our keynote address, a projector giveaway from Epson, and the ability to earn two major certifications during breakfast and happy hour – one for HDBaseT led by ATEN and another for AV over IP led by Atlona.”
