In the first story, numerous AV industry insiders provided their thoughts on the title subject.

So many in the audio visual industry have their perspectives on what life is like as a part of it, from sales to engineering to operations to project management to tech to programming. Marketing and communications people have a special job in terms of helping their manufacturing or integration company to thrive. Those who are in the meeting and events space provide essential services in many different scenarios.

There are those who go to the trade shows as exhibitors and attendees, strive to better themselves through education and certification, and volunteer to support, share knowledge, and give back to the industry they consider a big part of their life.

That’s the AV Life.
