Ladies and gentlemen, what you are about to hear is a podcast with the founding members of a new force to be reckoned with in the AV industry – that being #NonComm18. Never before has a group of savvy AV’ers put together such an electrifying event with no known location, yet accessible to the world – which has all of the makings of a great trade show!
One of their members though (who never joined on the show) has no clue whatsoever as to how to run a trade show, and also drops a lot of balls – yet he’s that guy they put in charge. Which begs the question… is it safe?
Corey and Michelle begin talking with Gabe who is attending a special event in London, England – he gives some interesting insights to #NonComm18 and then, well, he had to split as impending doom awaited him (his wife would be hunting him down).
Harry, an InfoComm attendee for quite some time, discusses the trade show’s first year in business, the organization, the “show floor,” their new special adviser, and much more. There’s talk of a parade. Oh yes, and that guy.
Art finally joins sometime during the show (he woke up late) talking about – what else – that guy who just messes up. It’s truly incredible. Art then introduces himself and talks about how he’s relatively new to the industry, as well as how he attended InfoComm last year. This year, he’s a man on a mission with #NonComm18. There are education sessions too, Art and Harry go over those. They also talk about the #AVSelfie.
There is something that will be “optional” – listen in for that. And for all of Harry’s fans there will be a swag hunt – which he’s been famous for at InfoComm. How do you pull off a virtual swag hunt? This is where trade show crossover comes into play, and could well be an economic indicator for the real and virtual sides of AV.
So, if you can’t attend InfoComm – well, this is truly the experience for you.
That’s about the size of it (sorry)! Sit back, plug in, always remember and never forget while you’re attending either (or both) of the industry trade shows that #AVisLife – while you’re living…
The AV Life.
