IAEE Partners with AVIXA and PSAV to Create AV Learning Experiences Focused on Increasing Attendee ROI

The International Association of Exhibitions and Events™ (IAEE) announces its partnership with AVIXA and PSAV to present the Tech AV Experience at Expo! Expo! IAEE’s Annual Meeting & Exhibition to be held 11-13 December 2018 in New Orleans, La. This series of education experiences on the show floor focuses on audiovisual (AV) related content for show organizers interested in how AV can be applied to increase attendee return on investment (ROI).

“This is the first time we have featured AV-focused learning experiences at Expo! Expo!,” said IAEE President & CEO David DuBois, CMP, CAE, FASAE, CTA. “We are excited to partner with IAEE member AVIXA and major show partner PSAV to bring this unique opportunity to Expo! Expo! attendees.”

The Expo! Expo! Tech AV Experience will feature multiple offerings of the following presentations:

Thinking Outside the Booth: Exhibit AV Trends to Try Now
Presented by PSAV

With so many exhibit booths vying for attention, how do you attract the right attendees? Multi-sensory tools have the power to build engagement and form meaningful connections. Learn how turning your booth into an “experience” can stimulate parts of the brain responsible for pleasure and reward in order to promote positivity towards your brand. Chris McCafferty, PSAV’s Director of Production for Exhibits and Specialty Events, will cover mixed reality, lighting techniques, color and other Exhibit AV best practices.

“We’re seeing a lot of interest in multi-sensory ‘experiences’ for the trade show floor. Through new technology and clever use of more traditional AV, there really is a lot that you can do to drive your content home and leave a positive impression with attendees,” said PSAV Premier Global Events Vice President of Exhibits + Specialty Events Roy Benear. “Visiting the Expo! Expo! Tech AV Experience is going to be the perfect way to demo these experiential tools. All Expo! Expo! attendees are invited to drop by for a free consultation and get inspired through AV.”

“As a long-time member of IAEE, AVIXA is proud to support the continuing education of industry professionals by sharing best practices for the delivery of quality audiovisual experiences at expositions and events,” said AVIXA Senior VP, Content & Communications Dan Goldstein.

Center Stage – Show Floor Presentation Area as Technology R&D Department
Presented by AVIXA

In 2018, the InfoComm Show consolidated all of its show floor presentation stages into a single marquee theater: Center Stage. This allowed Center Stage to become a playground for both program content and presentation technologies. Center Stage has experimented with VR, assistive listening, live telepresence, robotic cameras, giant LEDs and kinetic chandeliers. Join us for an honest exchange about what we’ve tried, what’s worked, what hasn’t and what we’re trying next.
