From virtual reality huddle spaces to the growing success of multi-media festivals such as Vivid, integrated technologies are undoubtedly on the cutting edge of making our vision of the future a reality.
Australia’s largest event for leaders and professionals in the AV industry, Integrate, is set return to Sydney this 23-25 August to offer a glimpse into the future of how we work and play.
Integrate Event Manager, Soren Norgaard, said he was excited to bring an invigorated Integrate event back to Sydney following the enormous success of last year’s Melbourne event.
“The draw of Integrate is that it showcases the latest technologies in an environment where AV and other professionals, such as IT and facility managers, can interact with them up close so they can fully understand how they work to help them find the best AV solutions for their end-users,” Mr Norgaard said.
On the expo floor, visitors will be exposed to a high caliber of exhibitor, including AV giants Samsung, Sony, LG, Panasonic and Sharp who will be showcasing future trends in home entertainment and integrated home systems through their latest product innovations. Meanwhile, revolutionary new conferencing technologies usher in the future of the workplace with Ricoh, Kramer, Crestron and Epson all showcasing the latest in unified communications from intelligent geo-location audio technology to collaborative huddle spaces, facilitating employee interaction unrestricted by physical location.
This year’s education program sets the bar high with international speakers including Gary Kayye of rAVe Publications, Mitch Klein of Z-Wave Alliance and ‘Silicon Valley’s go-to guy’ and futurist Rich Green, who has designed home systems for the likes of Steve Jobs, Larry Ellison and Luciano Pavarotti.

The inclusion of the ‘live’ offering will further strengthen Integrate as the key trade event for the AV and systems integration industry in the Australasian region.
