InfoComm 2023, June 10-16 (exhibits 14-16) in Orlando, will spotlight AV products and solutions for the future of learning environments.
The show will feature a rich education program, expert-led tours of learning solutions on the trade show floor, and tours of innovative solutions at the University of Central Florida (UCF).
Over the past two years, we have seen the incredible impact early investment in virtual and hybrid learning can have on educational environments. The entire field is still in this reassessment phase. By bringing together some of the top minds in the space at InfoComm, we’ll be able to continue this forward momentum toward the future of education, says Annette Sandler, director of live content, U.S./Canada, AVIXA.
