Ultra high definition screens, holographic displays and the latest in unified communications, control systems and advanced building automation, Pro AV, Audio and lighting were just some of the technologies on show at Integrate 2015 last week as Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre became a hub of the latest AV technology.
Held over three days and attended by more than 5300 key industry professionals, Integrate 2015 was the most successful show in the event’s seven-year history, reinforced by two thirds of this year’s exhibitors already committed to returning in 2016.
Integrate event manager Soren Norgaard said that the broad mix of new and innovative products on the show floor combined with education and training programs was what made Integrate the must-attend annual event for the AV and systems integration industry.
“Our vision for Integrate has been to create a one-stop-shop for key industry professionals where they can stay on top of the latest products and solutions across a broad range of areas while also enabling them to upskill and stay ahead of industry trends, network with industry colleagues and customers,” Mr Norgaard said.
“Our partnership with InfoComm International, which we have secured for another five years, is testament to the fact that Integrate is an important event for the AV industry both locally and internationally.”
More than 100 products were launched to the Australian market at this year’s Integrate, generating strong interest from visitors in several new products, including holographic displays, compressed signal distribution, touch screen interactive solutions and digital content creation.
Integrate 2015 was also used to pilot the latest in exhibition technology, the Konduko Reader, a wireless chip based communication device, at the show.
“Integrate 2015 attracted a high calibre of brands that used this event as an opportunity to launch new products and network, in addition to lead generation,” Mr Norgaard said.
“The calibre and steady flow of industry attendees through the door is testament to the fact that Integrate is a key annual event and we are certain it will be an even stronger event in 2016 and beyond.”
Mr Norgaard said that Integrate would return to the Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park in 2016 from 23 to 25 August.
