Episode 143: We Talk, They Talk and It All Makes Sense – the InfoComm 2019 Exhibitor Post Show (Part 2: InfoComm 2020 The Purge, and The Firing Range)



Make sure you listen to Part 1!

Re-join the Crew Corey Moss, Kym Frank, Tim Van Woeart and Maura Quinn as they welcome their guests:

Chris Bradford – President at Newline Interactive

David Kung – Vice President, Product Strategy at Oblong Industries Inc

Bob Knauf – Sr. Product Marketing Manager at Poly

Tim, who is The AV Life Zoom green screen background master, shifted and shaped throughout the podcast with industry, foodie and other such images.

At the point where all began the segment “InfoComm 2020 The Purge” – the background message from Tim was “What’s The Buzz.” Who isn’t tired of all of those buzzwords and terms you hear on the show floor – and we’re here to discuss that. One of the guests goes one step beyond to talk about that great Orlando heat and humidity – though no one really ever has an issue with that, right?

Kym adds to the segment, unbeknownst to the guests (along with the other Crew members), asking what ferocious animal would be released on InfoComm as a part of The Purge. Some fun answers from the guests – Maura also has one to add, and Tim just goes with another green screen background image.

Kym then asks a question to the guests about their favorite thing that happened at any trade show or event they were a part of.

Then, it’s time…

In The Firing Range this week:

The “Are you ready for a new kind of incognito” dept.

Yahoo Entertainment: Firefox Wants to Help You Fool Ad Trackers With 100 Useless Browser Tabs

Advertisers are tracking you across the web to build profiles and personalize ads. Firefox maker Mozilla now wants to help consumers bury their tracks, and throw off advertisers, with a fun little hack.

And we’re in. All in.

Yet, of course this is the debate portion of the podcast, and for and against teams must be chosen. Kym and Corey choose, and while you may think you know who the winning team will be (does Maura play the emotion card again here?), stay tuned till the end when it’s slam dunked by one team leader, and the other has no choice but to concede at the true point of no return.

And somehow, with this foodie fans out there get more food references – stroopwafels (who would have thought). Was Chick-Fil-A or Arby’s talked about too? If not, they will next time…

That’s all! Sit back, plug in, and join us for the final post-InfoComm 2019 podcast (see you in 2020, with less buzzwords!) as we live…

The AV Life.

Episode 143: We Talk, They Talk and It All Makes Sense – the InfoComm 2019 Exhibitor Post Show (Part 1: The Conversation)



Join the Crew Corey Moss, Kym Frank, Tim Van Woeart and Maura Quinn as they welcome their guests:

Chris Bradford – President at Newline Interactive

David Kung – Vice President, Product Strategy at Oblong Industries Inc

Bob Knauf – Sr. Product Marketing Manager at Poly

InfoComm 2019 has officially ended (two weeks ago), and boy are we still tired. But, troopers as we and all are in the AV industry, the Crew gets together with exhibitor executives for a great IC19 post-show. It begins with Corey talking about suggestions of a virtual way for those who can’t attend the show to look in on social media, and Kym suggests he tape a smartphone to his hat as he goes around the show. We’re currently in development – patent pending.

Corey then begins talking about what an outstanding show InfoComm 2019 was, and introduces the guests. It was Maura’s very first InfoComm, including the AVIXA Women’s Council Breakfast and they talk about that – and she described the show, the energy, the experience and more. As for her vendor booth experiences – kind of like this…

Shiny.

The guests begin talking about what took place at the show for them, along with partnerships, and the Crew members interact in discussion – Corey being a part of the tech/videoconferencing/UC space, Tim as the higher ed tech manager, Kym as a company President, tech/data expert and social media influencer, and Maura as a well-known young AV and social media influencer. In fact, all of the Crew love social media.

On this one – there are snack sponsors! A big thanks to Almo Pro A/V, and Daelmans Stroopwafels (with the McDonalds Stroopwafel McFlurry). Listen in, check it out!

Next, the guests are asked about their favorite conversation topics at the show. Excellent conversations, and Chris really got this one going…

Do we go on too long? Did we beat a dead horse? This, and more, are explained on this Part 1.

Enjoy this one, Part 2 coming soon.
