Integrate 2014, Australia’s largest AV and systems integration industry trade show has brought together an impressive cast of industry leaders to form the advisory panel. Composed of industry thought leaders and heads of Australian and global organisations, the highly esteemed panel has already begun contributing their expertise and ideas to improve the overall experience of the show.

Integrate 2014 will be held on 26-28 August 2014 at the Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park.

The panel has already decided on a brand new feature for 2014, the Integrate Conference, which indicates the show’s commitment to developing a platform for thought leadership. Show organiser Diversified Communications Australia formed the Integrate Advisory Panel to ensure their exhibition encompassed the latest thinking from the best in the business.

Terry Coe, President of the Association of Educational Technology Managers (AETM), believes investing his time on the Integrate Advisory Panel will assist in making the event the most targeted and valuable use of time for all participants.

According to Mr Coe, it’s an essential event on any AV professional’s calendar with all attendees from consultants through to installers, technical staff, managers and end users across various industry sectors, benefitting greatly from the exposure to new technology and the chance to talk and network with the AV experts on the show floor.
