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…

We’re the Hub for All People and Things AV
