InfoComm 2019 attracted 44,129 registered attendees, of which 37 percent were attending for the first time and 18 percent travelled to the show from 117 countries outside the U.S. It was also discovered that 40 percent of registered attendees were under the age of 40. The attendance continued to draw the next generation of audiovisual professionals, as well as a broad cross-section of engaged AV customers from higher education, hospitality, retail, and other markets.
Whether attracted by insightful new content, including Tuesday’s TIDE Conference and rich session tracks exploring AV experiences in hospitality and retail, created by content partners Blooloop, Hotel Management, Invidis Consulting, PSFK, and VMSD magazine, or by the nearly 950 exhibitors, attendees infused InfoComm 2019 with their energy.
“It’s been a truly remarkable week,” said AVIXA Senior Vice President of Exhibitions Rochelle Richardson. “The feedback from exhibitors has been outstanding. Many told us they had exceeded past records for booth visitors by early on the second day, an indication of very engaged attendees. And the sheer number of people absorbing our content — everything from the packed room for Tuesday’s Emerging Trends Day to the crowds at Center Stage — is some of the best validation we can receive of InfoComm’s value to the industry.”
