After the introductions, the first subject is introduced – the vibe at InfoComm. Along with the vibe discussion come some very interesting perspectives on the show from the guests and the Crew, including the end user discussion in terms of their attendance at the show. Michelle, who comes from the structured cabling world has some very good adds to this discussion from that viewpoint. Cory, from the manufacturer’s viewpoint, talks about the “less is more” in a very interesting perspective. And a really big shoutout to the women in the industry. There’s talk of the AVIXA Women’s Council Breakfast, and influencers who were leading it. Alan talks about his recap of the show – a very good InfoComm products and solutions outcome discussion. Leonard and Corey add to this too. There’s very good discussion of community here as well.
Next is the “Top Picks” discussion where first Corey discusses his Transformative Top Picks at the show (focused on the First Ten). The guests each talk about their top 3 picks at the show – very good picks for each, and Corey has a discussion based on JoAnn’s top pick, something that he encountered last year (a startup company’s product) which he placed in his Top Picks at the show. The Crew get a pick too. Corey also talks about time he spent with QSC’s founders.
Finally, as InfoComm time is big for awards, the Crew give awards to the guests on the show. Michelle gives Cory (and Brandy Alvarado) a special award, Kaleo presents one to JoAnn that will certainly be appreciated by many across the world, and Corey gives a special one to Leonard – stay tuned for that one. Alan wraps it up with ‘The Final Word.’
And – stick around till the end to hear from brand new Crew member Ethan Lee, he’s a host-in-training for when Corey’s ready to retire…
Sit back, plug in, we hope you’ve enjoyed InfoComm 2018 time on the show and just remember two things:
and make sure you live…
