Transforming the Audience Experience at InfoComm 2018

Once again this year, CEAVCO Audio Visual’s Matt Emerson and Eric Newkirk attended InfoComm. The world-renowned Audiovisual and Integrated Experience Event took place in Las Vegas from June 5‑8, 2018.

The largest audiovisual professional trade show in the United States, InfoComm 2018 hosted more than 1,000 exhibitors and 40,000 attendees from 110+ countries and displayed and demoed thousands of products.

Experiential technology was the star of the show. C2, Montreal’s groundbreaking conference for commerce and creativity, hosted notable experiential labs that shifted group dynamics and the in-room conversation.

One unconventional C2 experience involved entering a sensory deprivation environment with no light. With no visible cues to enable non-verbal communication, participants’ auditory acuity increased (as did their attentiveness). Participants made the most of their 20-minute session and discussed exciting changes in the audiovisual industry.

In another C2 experience, participants were suspended 15 feet in the air in chairs hung by wires. The goal was to exchange ideas “in the stratosphere.” The surrounding projected imagery continually shifted from a forest canopy to deep space to other environments, and the experimental seating literally lifted people out of their comfort zone to help them brainstorm new solutions to business challenges.

These experiential labs encouraged participants to think differently and explore AV topics in a whole new way. Change up the environment, and you change up the conversation. In the end, you just might transform the audience experience.

Industry Leadership and a Nationwide Presence — with Partner Support

CEAVCO Audio Visual is a founding member of the Rental & Staging Network (RSN), a professional organization whose members are top-tier video, audio, staging, and live event production companies from across the U.S. and Canada. CEAVCO’s strong relationships with likeminded companies enable us to provide responsive support to our clients throughout North America.

RSN member companies often share best practices and support each other’s event production needs. For example, CEAVCO was recently scheduled to produce a show in Minneapolis. One of our technicians had arrived with our gear, but two other team members’ flights were canceled because of a major storm in the Midwest. With little notice, our RSN partner in Minnesota agreed to help staff the show. (Ultimately, we didn’t need them to step in, but we appreciate their willingness to mobilize their team.)

Timely support from our RSN team members didn’t end there. CEAVCO recently pursued a corporate webcasting opportunity at locations nationwide. Over a weekend, our team turned to an RSN partner located in Connecticut. Our partner graciously shared valuable insights with our team.

Through membership in RSN, CEAVCO leverages the strengths of these and other highly respected partners, collaborating with the best AV resources around the country and providing exceptional production support wherever our clients’ events are happening.

The Side Stories team recently created a large-format film installation that projected digital works from 10 Colorado artists onto exterior walls in the River North (RiNo) neighborhood of Denver. The digital works created a walkable art experience through the popular neighborhood. CEAVCO Audio Visual provided projection mapping video technology and technical support to help transform the RiNo neighborhood into a cinematic work of art.

The Side Stories program was established to showcase short films produced by local artists. The 10 Colorado artists who participated created 3-5 minute digital works that were projected on makeshift screens, such as silos, apartment buildings, and storefronts.

The short film showcase took place every evening from February 21 through March 2, with the 10 short films running on a loop.

Check out behind the scenes shots of CEAVCO’s team at work by visiting CEAVCO’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/ceavco/. For more information about Side Stories, visit https://sidestoriescolorado.com/.
