Boutique Design - April 2017 - B
To the Readers of VMSD and Boutique Design,
It's not a trade secret: Forward-looking retail and hospitality companies are creating
audiovisual experiences to support their dynamic brands. Through advanced audio,
video, and control technology, they're building stronger customer loyalty, greater
engagement, increased sales, and more repeat business.
That's why a new partnership between InfoComm International, the global trade
association representing the commercial audiovisual industry, and ST Media Group,
publishers of the industry-leading retail and hospitality design publications VMSD
and Boutique Design, is important to designers like you. Through this partnership,
InfoComm, VMSD, and Boutique Design will showcase the business-building benefits
of integrating audiovisual experiences into retail and hospitality designs. We will get
the word out through in-person engagement, special reports, case studies, and more.
InfoComm is proud to be Presenting Sponsor of IRDC 2017 this September in New
Orleans, and we will be taking part in BDNY 2017 this November at New York's
Jacob Javits Center.
You may not know InfoComm, but InfoComm knows the amazing work you do telling a
brand's story. We represent the technology professionals who bring audiovisual magic
to those stories. In June, we're hosting a new conference called TIDE (Technology.
Innovation. Design. Experience.) headlined by Pixar storyteller Matthew Luhn and
Nonny de la Peña, the "godmother of virtual reality." It will be held in conjunction with
our own annual trade show in Orlando, Florida, where 40,000 people will immerse
themselves in the promise of audiovisual experiences. For information, visit
infocommshow.org and explore Education & Conferences.
We are excited to join the editors of VMSD and Boutique Design in helping creative
people like you realize the power of audiovisual experiences. We hope you have a
chance to engage with us throughout the year.
