FAIRFAX, Va., March 19, 2020 – After several weeks of monitoring the evolving situation around coronavirus (COVID-19) and following the guidance from the Australian Department of Health and the World Health Organization, organizers of Integrate 2020 have decided to postpone the audiovisual trade show originally scheduled to take place Aug. 19-21, in Sydney, Australia.
“We put our customers at the heart of what we do, and this decision has been difficult due to the importance of this event to our industry,” said Soren Norgaard, Event Manager for Integrate. “Many companies rely on the show to meet new and current customers and share the latest global AV innovations. However, following the recent government advice on social distancing and travel restrictions, postponement is unavoidable. This is uncharted territory and carrying on with the current dates would not be in the best interests of the AV community.”
The Integrate team is committed to finding a solution to deliver an event in Sydney this year to ensure business continuity to the AV industry. Details will be announced in the next month.
Integrate, in association with key industry partners, serves the AV and systems integration market as the leading platform to launch new products to the market in the Asia-Pacific region, learn about current trends, and to network and do business. The show is a conduit for local and global brands to meet with buyers and distributors while communicating new solutions to AV technicians and end users. Visit integrate-expo.com.
