InfoComm Proceeding as Planned; Will Premiere New Live Events Experience

Amid COVID-19 concerns and a number of large North American events being cancelled, the organizers of InfoComm have confirmed that, as of March 11, the show is still planned to take place. North America’s largest AV show will still return to Las Vegas from June 13-19, 2020. Also announced for the show is the premiere of the new Live Events Experience (LEX).

In a statement on March 11, AVIXA, the association that runs InfoComm, said they are "proceeding as planned" and that the "show management of InfoComm and the executive staff of AVIXA are continuing to monitor the evolving situation around the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) on a day-by-day basis, and our thoughts continue to be with those affected across the world."

At the show, the new LEX  feature will present a breadth of AV technology in live events through innovative performances and provide behind-the-scenes access to an interactive tech showcase for attendees to test event activations. The stage lineup will also include conversations with technology professionals on topics ranging from the surge of AV adoption in esports to overall trends in the performance and entertainment world.

In addition to an array of discussions with technology professionals, the LEX stage will feature live performances throughout the week. This includes the dance performance group iLuminate, a finalist on America’s Got Talent, which mixes wearable LED technologies with choreography performed in the dark.
InfoComm is also hosting a half-day Live Events Conference on June 18th, which will focus on the rapidly-changing corporate events landscape and how AV professionals can adapt to the growing demands.
