The award was presented last night during InfoComm's 75th Anniversary Awards Dinner held at InfoComm14 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Cornwall has also delivered over 60 trainings to groups of industry professionals within the past year surmounting nearly 1,000 renewal units delivered towards InfoComm's continuing education program. In addition, Cornwall has written several white papers and articles including his popular Know the Lingo which break down technical aspects into simplistic terms, as well as The 5 Technologies that Will Define the Next 5 Years.
