InfoComm to Host Regional Trade Shows Aimed at In-House Tech Professionals and Purchasers

InfoComm Connections will debut in Philadelphia, October 22-23, 2014 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center

FAIRFAX, VA - March 19, 2014 - InfoComm International, the trade association representing the commercial audiovisual industry worldwide, plans to host a new series of two-day trade shows aimed at technology managers, in-house technical staff, institutional buyers and end-users. InfoComm Connections will debut in Philadelphia, October 22-23, 2014 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, and will feature a combination of exhibits, speakers, industry training and networking opportunities.


"InfoComm Connections will feature a sampling of all that is great about the annual flagship North American InfoComm show. This first show will allow technology professionals from New England to the Carolinas the experience of a show within a very short travel distance from where they work," said David Labuskes, CTS, RCDD, Executive Director and CEO, InfoComm International. "This will allow over 2,000 in-house experts, technology managers and other attendees the ability to see a wide range of product demonstrations, attend keynote and training sessions, network and more."

Several big name exhibitors have already expressed interest in participating in the event. It is expected that InfoComm Connections will ultimately feature about 80 exhibitors in 12,000 net square feet of space. "Getting in front of more end-customers is a major strategic goal of many of our technology manufacturing members, and it made sense for InfoComm to contribute to that goal by starting this series of shows," said Labuskes.

In addition to InfoComm University training, InfoComm Connections will feature manufacturer training and partner group conference offerings in affordable, focused sessions.

Registration for the October event will open in July. InfoComm will hold a second InfoComm Connections show in San Jose, California, March 4-5, 2015. With the introduction of these new shows, InfoComm will no longer host the Washington, D.C.-based GovComm show.

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
