What To Expect At IAVM VenueConnect 2017

Our trucks and employees headed out this week for the 92nd annual IAVM VenueConnect Conference being held at the Music City Center in Nashville, TN. Every year, IAVM gathers professionals from a variety of different industries for different sessions and an exhibit hall. This year they are doing things a little differently with the schedule. It is now set up to have different “tracks” or sessions that are geared towards each type of industry with a morning session and an afternoon session, with the trade show/exhibit hours happening in the middle of those sessions.

Venues including:

  • Arenas
  • Convention Centers
  • Amphitheaters/Fairgrounds
  • Performing Arts Centers
  • Stadiums
  • Universities

We will be more involved this year with the sessions going on, Brent Stevens (our National Sales Manager for Professional Sports) will be on the panel for “What’s New or Innovative in Facility Operations and Design”, Tuesday, August 8th at 9 am. Brent will be going over industry trends that we’re seeing in venues across the country in regards to concourses, corporate lobbies, club areas and press conferences.

Glen Marts, our regional sales rep, will be leading a roundtable discussion for the Performing Arts Centers group on Wednesday, August 9th at 10am. Roundtable discussion is for peers to talk amongst each other and with experts to hear about what is going on in the industry today, and what challenges they see in the future. Glen will be covering our Narrow Pixel Pitch (NPP) line, Street Furniture and Channel Lettering.

For the exhibit hall this year, the main feature of our booth will be the new 1.9mm Narrow Pixel Pitch (NPP) display. Also in our booth, we’ll have our mod wall, Street Furniture display, curved podium display, our logo channel display and our VR Headset where attendees can come see a virtual experience of the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

We’re looking forward to seeing everyone at IAVM and stop by Booth #401!
