The show will feature an extensive lineup of leading solution providers across the trade show floor, a comprehensive education program, audio demo rooms, and tours of pro AV applications around Las Vegas that highlight these vibrant pro AV solutions.

“The live events and audio communities have produced so much innovation over the past two years,” said Annette Sandler, Director of Live Content U.S./Canada, AVIXA. “We are excited to bring these groups together for education and insights into how productions have evolved and the new technologies making this possible.”

On Tues., June 7, Eboni Green, CEO of Mics to Messaging and Alexander Williams, CTS, CTS-D, Technology Director for Mics to Messaging, will present the session “Create Remarkable Hybrid Events Using AV, Social Media, and Messaging.” Green and Williams emphasize that the foundation to creating an amazing hybrid event experience is the strategic planning of on-site experiences that will be well-received virtually and provide sufficient ROI for event investors. Their session will focus on creating events that provide opportunities for connection, brand engagement and advocacy, and support strategic goals.

On Wed., June 8, Troy Peters, CTS, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development for Video West, will lead the session “Show Calling and Stage Management for Live Events.” He will discuss the show caller’s role in directing an audiovisual experience with numerous moving parts. From managing the onstage talent, to the technical know-how, Peters will share how to engage with the on-site engineers, show producers, stage managers, and even the audience to design and execute the perfect live event.

Also taking place on Wed., June 8, is the session “Networked Audio Protocols and Use Cases.” A panel of experts who have worked to shape these protocols will discuss their intents, strengths, and technical implementation. They’ll also discuss the future of audio protocols, including how companies and organizations can work together to support openness, interoperability, and ultimately network convergence. The panel includes Dan Ferrisi, Editor-in-Chief of Commercial Integrator, Paul Zielie, CTS-D, CTS-I, Solutions Architect for AVCoIP, Scott Sugden, Product and Technology Outreach Manager for L-Acoustics, Kathryn Taub, Vertical Marketing Manager for Corporate and Higher Education at Audinate, and Andrew Starks, Director of Product Management at Macnica Americas.

The session “Selecting Assistive Listening Technology” on Thurs., June 9, will be led by Dave Bertrand, National Sales Manager of Western U.S for Williams AV. He will address how an AV professional’s goal is to create meaningful user experiences, yet sometimes the impact of these engaging experiences is lost on people with hearing challenges. Bertrand will discuss the ADA standards that state that it’s the responsibility of public venues to ensure that everyone can equally participate in the venue’s offering. He will share how to select the right assistive listening technology to meet ADA requirements while creating an exceptional user experience.
