av-week-2011Listen Technologies will be joining a host of companies and organizations across the country to celebrate InfoComm’s AV Week October 16 – 23, 2011.

“AV Week” proclamations have been secured by Utah Governor Gary Herbert, Salt Lake County Mayor Peter Corroon, Bluffdale City Mayor Derk Timothy, and Park City Mayor Dana Williams.All four proclamations state the impact of the audiovisual industry on everyday lives, noting AV applications in architecture, medicine, government proceedings, education, entertainment and business.

As part of AV Week, Listen Technologies is sponsoring a tour of Rio Tinto Stadium. Hans Niska, Director of Facility Management will lead participants through a behind-the-scenes look at how the audiovisual industry makes the soccer fan’s experience come to life.

The tour is free and open to the public. Interested parties are encouraged to contact Deb Weeks to sign up for the free tour at 801.547.7742 or via email at [email protected].

“The tour of Rio Tinto Stadium will be an interesting way to showcase how the AV industry affects everyone,” said Cory Schaeffer, VP of Sales Worldwide at Listen Technologies.”Anytime you walk into a sports arena, school, church, theater, shopping center, government office or other public venue, AV equipment is present to give you directions, help you hear better, enhance your visual experience, and improve communication with others.”

AV Week is presented by InfoComm International, a worldwide association serving the audiovisual industry. The association offers regular training and support to its members and sponsors the annual InfoComm trade show, which attracted over 30,000 attendees in 2011.InfoComm members in the State of Utah include manufacturers, AV consulting and design firms, system integrators, and end users. The AV industry is very healthy in Utah and benefits our economy not only through the technologies that are available, but also through job creation and revenues.
