Crestron Kicks off AV Week and Celebrates the Strength of the Industry with Job Creation

Fifth Annual AV Week Delivers Opportunity to Demonstrate the Vitality and Growth of the Industry, and the Power of Partnership

As a leading member of the AV industry, Crestron has joined InfoComm International to celebrate the fifth annual AV Week, October 17 -23, 2010. Today, Crestron kicked off its celebration by hiring 10 new employees at its world headquarters in Rockleigh, NJ. "The AV industry is the most exciting, cutting -edge business in the world, and we are very proud to be part of it," said Vincent Bruno, Crestron Director of Marketing. "There's no better way to celebrate the strength, innovation, vibrancy and leadership of our industry than to attract and train fresh new talent and welcome them into our industry."


Crestron is very active in raising awareness of the AV industry. Thousands of architects, interior designers, local officials, end users and students have toured the Crestron Experience Center to see the latest AV and control technology firsthand. Working with a local community college, Crestron sponsors continuing education classes that introduce professionals to cutting -edge technology and inspire them to pursue careers in AV. Crestron hired ten of those course graduates today.

"AV used to be a luxury. Today it's mainstream, and delivers instant access to media and information - all the time and from everywhere," observed Bruno. "We continuously innovate the way people live and work, touching so many more lives than people realize. I can't think of a home or type of organization that doesn't rely on AV systems and technology."

Bruno added, "When people see what we do, they get inspired. That's what AV week is all about."

During AV Week, InfoComm International and its members sponsor workshops, presentations, career fairs and other events around the globe to spotlight the audiovisual industry and to recognize the AV professionals who manufacture, design and install AV technology.
