InfoComm 2023 Delivers
The AV tradeshow wraps up for another year.
There was plenty of love for the InfoComm show this year. Everyone we spoke to during the three days of the tradeshow expressed their enthusiasm for what they experienced. The Australian contingent was particularly light-on this year. The Orlando version is always a tougher challenge for ANZ attendees (who prefer the closer Vegas option) but this year the flights prices were particularly brutal. Except for the distributors with skin in the game and the favoured few consultants who had a sponsor, it was rare to catch an Australian accent. Let’s hope the cost of flights normalise sooner rather than later — but don’t hold your breath.
Organisers’ Stats: Total registrants for InfoComm 2023 reached 36,639. The show welcomed 29,325 verified attendees from 115 countries. International attendance made up 20%. In addition, 37% were first-time attendees. More than 2,000 unique individuals participated in continuing education.
On the trade show floor, 700 exhibitors showcased pro AV products and solutions across 358,700 net square feet in the West Concourse of the Orange County Convention Center.
In addition, AV professionals with their goals set on earning the leading pro AV credential took their Certified Technology Specialist (CTS) exams at InfoComm. A total of 156 professionals earned their CTS at the show (112 earned their CTS, 27 attained CTS-D (Design), and 17 attained CTS-I (Installation).
“It’s been an incredible week at InfoComm 2023 — seeing the power of such creative minds come together to show off pro AV solutions that enhance our world,” said David Labuskes, CTS, CAE, RCDD, CEO of AVIXA. “To witness an industry evolving in real-time is so inspirational. I know attendees will head home with countless new ideas and business connections — supercharged for months to come.”
“There were so many highlights from the show. If you ask 10 different attendees, you’ll surely get 10 different fantastic answers — innovative products and solutions, experiential components, education, integrated experience tours, and so much more,” said Rochelle Richardson, CEM, Senior Vice President of Expositions and Events, AVIXA. “There are numerous people that work together to make a big show like InfoComm a success – exhibitors, sponsors, attendees, speakers, media, the Orange County Convention Center, Freeman, and the AVIXA staff.
