I am Program Coordinator, Europe for AVIXA and I am based in Torino, Italy. I deal with the relations and contacts with European members of AVIXA from Italy, France, Malta, Slovenia and Benelux&Nordics. I take part in the organization of courses and events in Europe, focusing mostly on the Italian region. I attend events all over Italy to present AVIXA and raise the association awareness among Italian AV professionals.

Helping lead the charge of AVIXA's research efforts into the trends and opportunities in the pro AV industry. When not digging into data, speaking and writing about the trends, or discussing where to focus our research efforts next, I enjoy spending time outdoors on walks, hikes or fishing adventures. Though I also have a soft spot for consuming AV content in my DIY home theater, thanks to a love for good audio I get honest from my Dad!
We are the community for the creative professionals who use technology to create integrated experiences.
AVIXA is the Audiovisual and Integrated Experience Association, producer of InfoComm trade shows around the world, co-owner of Integrated Systems Europe, and the international trade association representing the audiovisual industry.
Take a peek at what we do:
What Is the AV Industry?
AV is the intersection of content, technology, and space. The AV industry is the community of manufacturers and myriad professionals that provide the tools and expertise necessary to convey ideas and enhance communication in virtually every human arena. Audiovisual systems and technologies are the building blocks that create memorable experiences and connect us to our world in every way imaginable. It’s the tremendous sound you hear at a concert, the amazing digital displays you see at a museum, the video conferencing system you use at your office, the projected images you see at your corporate gatherings, the cool stuff in the huddle space that connects your devices to the big display, the technical wizardry that’s used in theme parks to amaze and delight you. That is all part of the AV industry. Are you getting the picture?
We’re Part Association, Part Society
We’re part association, part society; a mix of professionals from all over the globe who create those cool experiences you have in meetings, classes, and events in offices, airports, museums, sports arenas, theatres, concerts…

Andy is a deeply committed tech head who's been playing with a broad range of AV technologies since well before there was something called AV. He loves to know how and why things work, and stumbled on the fact that he has a talent for explaining what he's learned, so he's been teaching and writing about all kinds of technologies for a while now. He has worked in AV, broadcast, live production, IT, publishing, consulting, and events. Over the last five years he's written the new editions of the CTS, CTS-I, and CTS-D Exam Guides. The most fun part of what he does is research into developing technologies to see how they fit into the future of AV and IT. He is presently heavily involved in initiatives to improve the sustainability of the technologies we use in the audiovisual industries.
