AVIXA Stands With Ukraine

AVIXA has released a statement about the Ukraine-Russian War.

AVIXA Stands with Ukraine“At AVIXA, we condemn the unprovoked invasion by Russia of the sovereign country of Ukraine. We stand in support of our members and member companies across the globe, calling on the government of Russia to immediately cease its invasion, withdraw its troops from Ukrainian territory, and restore the rights of both Ukrainian and Russian citizens,” AVIXA said in the statement.

Until that time, AVIXA is suspending the membership of both Russian individual members and member companies until further notice. The organization is also suspending all Russian exhibitor requests for InfoComm 2022.

Additionally, as co-owners of Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) AVIXA says it support their withdrawal from ISRussia, as well as that of Russian exhibitors for the upcoming ISE show.

The full statement from Integrated Systems Events is below:

The current situation in Ukraine and Russia is heart-breaking, not only do we feel for the people of Ukraine, but also for the ordinary Russian people who are badly affected, too. We have friends and colleagues in both countries severely impacted, not least our colleagues at ISRussia and of course our Russian exhibitors.

Like many other organizations, we strongly condemn the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, and we pray for a resolution as quickly as possible. To confirm the situation for ISE 2022, the three exhibitors from Russia are withdrawn from the event. We have also withdrawn from our cooperation with our Russian partner in the organization of ISRussia, and, as such, the show will no longer take place.

ISE, and the ProAV industry, is built on collaboration and support—and we remain committed to providing a platform to come together, reconnect, and rebuild business after the last two years. The situation is fluid, and our thoughts are with both the Ukrainian and Russian people in these difficult moments
