InfoComm 2017


Emerging Trends Day

Emerging Trends Day

Join InfoComm and the IMCCA for in-depth look at the future of the AV industry, as well as emerging technology trends within particular verticals. There’s no better way to prepare for the InfoComm show floor.

Emerging Trends Day will kick off with Pete Putman’s annual review of overall industry trends from CES, NAB and more. Then, the IMCCA will host a series of 30 minute briefings with the 2017 Emerging Trend Fellows. These experts were chosen for their deep expertise on 2017’s most crucial technology verticals.

Come for the whole day, or just the briefing you need. You can even join our Emerging Trend Fellows before and after their briefings in the Emerging Trend Lounge across the hall to discuss what you’ve heard and what 2017 will hold.

Emerging Trends Day is included in the Seminar and Workshop package.
