Commercial Integrator Expo, owned and produced by Emerald, the new exposition and conference for the commercial audiovisual integration channel and technology managers co-located with CEDIA Expo, announces a partnership with the Interactive Multimedia & Collaborative Communications Alliance (IMCCA) as a supporting organization for the show.
In addition to the return of IMCCA sponsored work from home (WFH) and hybrid office technology application sessions on the Smart Stage and Innovation Hub stage at CEDIA Expo, IMCCA will organize a comprehensive track of educational sessions on unified communications and collaboration technologies (UC), applications, trends and case studies within the all-new Commercial Integrator Expo conference program. IMCCA, the preeminent voice of the unified communications and collaboration industry, will bring insights, subject matter experts and interactive demonstrations to Commercial Integrator Expo and CEDIA Expo.
Unified communications and collaboration technologies have become essential tools connecting residential, office and learning spaces as business professionals and students continue to use home offices and flexible workspaces post-pandemic. Enterprises and universities connect their facilities and networks with remote workers and students relying on a convergence of the latest technologies, design, data, network and security products and solutions. During Commercial Integrator Expo and CEDIA Expo, IMCCA will showcase work from home (WFH) setups in home office demos on the show floor and will bring together leading industry experts in the UC conference track sessions to discuss the latest trends and solutions opportunities for systems integrators’ and technology managers’ businesses.
“Communication and collaboration solutions are key parts of business, education and home environments today,” said Jason McGraw, CTS, group vice president, Emerald. “Modern hybrid work, learning and entertainment spaces have transformed with demands for new collaboration solutions. Unified communications technology provides the connectivity solutions for hybrid and remote work by providing reliable and seamless communication and collaboration. Commercial Integrator Expo, CEDIA Expo and IMCCA have built a strategic partnership to provide education, insights and opportunities for systems integrators, designers, distributors, architects,
developers, and technology managers to meet the industry’s continued demand for robust hybrid and remote work solutions.
“It is clear that UC and Hybrid Working will be a critical part of being future ready,” said Carol Zelkin, Executive Director of the IMCCA. “We are excited to work with Commercial Integrator Expo and CEDIA Expo to bring detailed and agnostic education from industry experts and end-users to the events’ attendees.”
IMCCA will present a State of the Collaboration Industry session on the Smart Stage, highlighting trends for the future of remote and hybrid workplace technologies, and a Home Office Demo presentation, which will showcase the best practice setups to achieve ideal professional home offices. Additionally, IMCCA will host a slate of UC application discussions on the Innovation Hub stage. Commercial Integrator Expo conference programming will feature educational content on best practices, trends and solutions for commercial AV project design and systems installation, vertical market case studies and peer networking.
