See a project you’d like to learn more about? You can connect with the individuals and providers who have shared their expertise. (Company and individual names shown on the post are clickable links that will take you straight to the author’s profile) You can “Follow” them so that you’re alerted when they’ve posted something new. As you learn more about them from their profile, note the “Experts Like” section to discover others who you may wish to follow as well.

Making the most of a trade show
Do you attend ISE or InfoComm? Join a conversation in a room dedicated to the show and you’ll be connected to the exhibitors, instructors, presenters, and attendees. Get the inside scope on everything happening on and off the show floor!
Ask for recommendations on not-to-be-missed demos and displays, ask for suggestions of booths to visit based on your challenging project, get tips on best restaurants and more. Do you have a question about the show and can’t find the answer on the website? Ask it!
These connections don’t stop when the show’s over either. Check back with the room after the show to stay engaged, uncover what you may have missed and book a follow-up.
Aside from your project needs, explore the social and business aspects offered. For example, explore the Jobs Room and find valuable content such as recruiting strategies and interviewing skills. Are you in need of an onsite technician or AV/IT Manager? As a member of Xchange, feel free to share your AV-related position opening.
You and your colleagues may find value in the CTS Holders or CTS Study Group Rooms and your HR team may enjoy learning about DEI initiatives across the industry through A Culture of Inclusion Room. As for project inspiration, watch as the Celebration of AV Excellence Room develops, showcasing amazing spaces and experiences from around the globe.
