InfoComm '08 opens with Strategy Institute conference

There’s a lot more than digital signage going on with infoComm, a massive AV show whose organizers decided June in Las Vegas would be a smashing idea.

It’s a little hot. But drinking a lot of beer is no longer recreation, just necessary hydrating.

The latest incarnation of the Strategy Institute series of DS-focused shows is on Monday and Tuesday at the Las Vegas Hilton, adjacent of the Las Vegas Convention Center that is home to infoComm. There are about 130 people at this event, based on my table count, with quite a few integrators and people from the educational and institutional sector. Very few names on the sheet, however, that would send me into stalking mode.

One nice thing – the infoComm show has spillover into the Hilton and I was able to mosey into some other micro shows aimed at the projector market. A little on that in another post.
