LAVNCH EMEA, took place 2-3 September 2020, and created a unique platform for ProAV education and discussion. Designed for integrators, manufacturers, consultants and end users, the two-day virtual event addressed the products, solutions and applications shaping the industry now and in the future. With leadership keynotes, technical sessions and discussions from manufacturers — combined with industry insights from Futuresource Consulting and commentary from THE rAVe Agency — this online event was one of the industry highlights of 2020.

The COVID-19 pandemic has permanently changed the world we live in and the outlook for the ProAV industry. It’s compressed years of evolution into a few short months, forcing companies up and down the supply chain to reevaluate business plans and strategic direction. The “new normal” is a world beyond pure AV in which solutions and platforms become even more important for long-term growth. Understanding how AV fits into this brave new world and making smart decisions will be the focus of this two-day conference. It’ll weave insights from Futuresource analysts with opinions from industry thought leaders.
