You won’t believe how much you can achieve at this event. AVI LIVE 2019 packs a year’s worth of technology, education, and networking into a single day.


During his keynote, president and CEO of rAVe [Publications] Gary Kayye will cover some of the ways the AV industry has changed - and how it hasn't. In his keynote, he'll share his perspective on approaching AV design to accommodate a multigenerational workforce. Keynote description:

The Future of AV Design: A People-First Approach
Room designs and installs haven't changed in 25 years. Sure, the devices and hardware have made significant advances in that time. But, the function of the rooms hasn't changed. But it's about to. And, it's not because we’re moving everything to AV-over-IP or because of more "all-in-one" gear solutions.

People have changed. Things have changed. Tech has changed. Now, AV design needs to change. It's important to start thinking about AV design and installation from a people-first approach.


The exhibit hall showcases over 50 premier manufacturers and service providers with the latest and greatest technology for business, healthcare, education, government, and more. This is a chance to see the technology up close, talk with the vendors in person, and find out what solutions fit your organization's needs.

While you’re on the show floor, be sure to also explore AVI Systems' newest offerings, like technology management platform AVI Insight.


Classes that count as continuing education credits, or RU credits, for your AVIXA CTS will be offered in both morning and afternoon sessions, giving you access to the information you need to further your career.

SEMINAR: Managed Services - How the Right Solution Can Help Augment Your User Support

Don Mastro - AVI

AV systems have traditionally not been considered a business critical part of a company, but that's all changed as AV equipment is now able to operate like another endpoint in meetings.  IT organizations are increasingly challenged supporting mobility, BYOD, desktop video and traditional room systems in meetings - and users expect it all to work.  Learn more about how managed services can augment your current user support, identify issues before users are disrupted, and also by managing your company's AV technology.

SEMINAR: A Platform-First Room Design - Accelerating the Conversation about Meeting Spaces


In the past, we refer to meeting spaces by their intended use, as in "huddle room" or "conference room".  Today, it's all about the platform, like Zoom, Cisco or Microsoft.  So what does this mean for users?  AVI Systems has seen this trend evolve and has answered with a series of Reference Designs that meet these needs.  Learn how Reference Designs result in great user adoption and improved efficiency for teams in this session.

2:30 PM - 3:30 PM | Puckett Atrium
