Wallace Johnson – Managing Director at WLJ Consulting, LLC (and host of The LIVE Life podcast)
A show that brings together live events and AV, emerging tech, a high school graduate interested in a career in AV leading to a great conversation about young people joining the industry, and Center Stage – a 3-day event taking place at InfoComm 2018, June 6th – 8th in Las Vegas.
That’s The AV Life.
After introduction of the guests (along with Bella), Corey discusses live events with Will, Wallace and Brittney (who is the new live events host of The AV Life) all who are live events professionals. Will talks about his company Endless Events, and how companies can do what Endless does with video content (his presentation at Center Stage). Will refers to his podcast which will also be talked about a little later in the show. Wallace then talks about live events as it’s been a part of his life for quite some time, and he talks about the industry in terms of emerging technologies (AR and VR) translating to live events and content creation.
Brittney discusses emerging technologies in the space, along with creating and augmenting the live events experience. She focuses on events and mobile devices, along with leveraging these devices as a first screen. Amar talks about Shared_Studios and discusses their portals at sites around the world along with events, with AV and other technologies for their distributed spaces around the world. Bella gets in on the discussion as she was involved in live events at her high school, and she also talks about attending a recent AVIXA Women’s Council event in DC Metro.
During the usual mid-show conversation, Michelle talks about AV industry reach, leading to a discussion about bringing young people like Bella into the industry. Wallace details AVIXA programs for schools, and gives some advice here too. Brittney, Michelle, Will and Amar talk about creating internships.
Next, all talk about InfoComm 2018 Center Stage – Amar begins by highlighting his discussion (on June 6th) Using Videoconferencing to Connect Learning Communities, along with more about their portals and AV. Will then talks about his discussion (on June 8th) Innovators in Online Video Content Creation Reveal the Secrets to Compulsively Watchable Content, creating better video content, along with value creation.
Finally, Will and Wallace talk about their industry podcasts (along with the Crew) – make sure you give them a listen.
Sit back, plug in, and join us for an enlightening discussion about live events, emerging tech, young people in tech, and one of the big events to see at InfoComm as we live…
The AV Life.
