TIDE Conference | AVIXA


Srinivas Rao, best-selling author and host of popular podcast The Unmistakable Creative, will headline AVIXA’s TIDE (Technology. Innovation. Design. Experience.) conference at InfoComm 2019 in Orlando, Florida. The event brings together innovators from design, architecture, technology, live events, and art to discuss the dynamic results and incredible experiences that experiential design plays in business.

“We live in a world where every individual and organization has a microphone,” said Rao. “When a business doesn't understand or can't articulate their unique value proposition, they will drown in a sea of noise. The temptation is to look at competitors. But mimicry is a short-term fix that will make your products and services obsolete in the long run. At TIDE, we’ll uncover what makes an organization truly unique and develop the mindset required to take creative risks that lead to innovative products and services.”

On June 11 at the Orange County Convention Center, the day before the InfoComm floor opens, Rao will join a speaker line-up of designers, brand marketers, architects, integrators, and live events producers who will share their perspectives on the role audiovisual technology plays in different environments to elevate experiences.

In the latest issue of AV Magazine, Editor Clive Couldwell reports on attitudes of policies toward inclusion and diversity. Referencing the inaugural UK AVIXA Diversity Council Event at the Royal Society of Medicine in London—which explored the benefits of diversity in the workplace—AV Magazine cites findings from its own online research. “AV is a great industry to work in and we should clear career paths into it, shouting from the rafters what an exciting time this is to engage with it. Diversity and inclusion should encourage business to respect and support its workforce and encourage a new generation of talent we so desperately need in the industry,” says Couldwell.
