InfoComm members showed their pride during AV Week!

It was wonderful to have an industry-recognized week dedicated to audiovisual! We were able to highlight multiple facets of audiovisual to include collaboration tools, audioconferencing, AV production, integration and consulting, the convergence of AV and IT, and the ways usage of these tools can positively affect our working environments and lives. -- Stacy Foster, PMP, CTS, Associate and Audiovisual Service Center Manager, Booz Allen Hamilton

The first annual AV Week was very successful in generating awareness about how vital AV technologies are to our businesses, our communities and our lives. Through several AV Week initiatives, we were able to demonstrate that audiovisual technologies play a key role in elevating business and communication. -- Jay Rogina, Chief Executive Officer, Spinitar

AV Week was a great opportunity for employers large and small to create awareness of the industry in their community. AV Week gave us a chance to teach all of our employees about the great industry they are part of and how the products they build are used in their neighborhood church, courtrooms, boardrooms and military command centers.

Ali Haghjoo, President, Hall Research

Classroom visits, employee contests, product giveaways, proclamations, news coverage, road rallies, job fairs, student tours and presentations. These are some of the ways that InfoComm and its members showed pride and shared their talents during AV Week in October.

Members reached out to their communities in ways they might not have otherwise - all to raise awareness for the AV industry. It was a powerful way for members to get students to consider AV careers, to encourage schools and businesses to embrace the technology, to distinguish ourselves from the IT industry.

For those who are wondering what AV Week is all about, visit www.avweek.org to see what happened and mark your calendars. InfoComm intends to recognize AV Week again next year October 21 - 27, 2007.
