About Jonathan Seller, CAE
I have 20+ years experience serving AVIXA's members in various parts of the world mostly focused within the Asia-Pacific region. In my current position I'm responsible for AVIXA's Growth and Industry Support in the region and leading a dedicated team of people that share that goal. If you would like to know how AVIXA can assist you or your business, please make contact.
David, some great insights here. Particularly the point you make about Uptake, as this ultimately drives the real value extracted (over time) by the customer in their AV investment.
Thanks so much for sharing.
This was a great session. I am working on a similar initiative in the USA and would like to work with you and the team in Australia to help expand exposure to AV in the marketplace. We have recently created a room for this initiative. AV Education for The Next Generation | AVIXA Xchange. If you would be so kind as to help me connect with the presenters from the session at Integrate, that would be wonderful. I am working with AVIXA, BICSI, CEDIA, NSCA, and schools such as Pace University, Houston Community College, Lincoln Technical Institute, Warren High School (state of California approved Audio-Visual curriculum), Sheffield Audio Institute, and The Loop Lab, along with companies such as Crestron Electronics, Dish Networks, Microsoft, and more to help foster audio-visual industry training for the next generation of professionals.
Globally, we are over a $300 Billion industry with the expectation of growing to $400 Billion in the next ten years. The more we connect the various initiatives, the more we can impact and reach the next generation of professionals.

Hi Rich, thanks for your kind comments about the session. Like you we have also created a room on the Xchange for our local workforce development efforts. It's called AV Careers in Australia https://xchange.avixa.org/rooms/av-careers-in-australia We have built it as a resource centre for IT and Live Production Students who are in Certificate and Diploma level tertiary courses at our State Bases Technical and Further Education (TAFE) Colleges. I'll put you in touch with the presenters by email.
Its a great story Michael, thanks for sharing it with us.
What an awesome gig. Great story Nick, thanks for sharing.
To those of you that attended the July A-Pac regional forum, thankyou for taking the time to join the call. We had over 250 people register from 25 countries across the region and beyond. The Virtual Forum really does provide the opportunity for people to make connections beyond their usual circle of contacts in the industry and for us to share information and have a conversation. I look forward to seeing more of our members at the next forum on the 28th of September, 2023. If you have any suggestions for topics you would like us to cover at our forums, please put them here in the comments. Thanks again, I look forward to seeing you soon.

Hello @Lisa Matthews, CTS you made went into the map to finally find the name. I could not remember!!! "Restaurante La tabla" for those who want to stay around and close the hotel or convention center.
We had the opportunity to taste excellent restaurants, but one memorable was "La Flauta: it was a recommended place by a chef friend. A must-try. I am excited to read all the recommendations here!
I invite to @Franciele Mesadri, @Gina Soraya Gonzalez Lezama, @Ojeny Magdy @Carla Charlton to share their recommendations!
Restaurante La Tabla had not only beautiful fresh food, it was also very inexpensive. Great recommendation.
THanks for the Information Monisha
This is our initiative in equipping education sectors with technology and empowering students to explore beyond the text books... AV is more than physics and science
Joe is correct, AV is more than physics and science. With Experience Galleries at schools like ITE in Singapore, hopefully AV is also inspiration. Often students wonder about the real world application of some the lessons they are taught. I'll bet they don't ask that in this class.
