A Chance To Catch Up

Do not adjust your set! We set up our studio during CTI’s National Sales Meeting to have a our usual roundtable discussion of AV news in person! Joining us in the first section is Business Development Manager of Education for Starin Jennifer Weaver, Director of Consulting Services for CTI Brian Heidgerken and Market Development Manager for Starin (and noted lover of Pineapple Pizza) Chris Neto. Since this is an event in itself, we switch gears and guests in the middle to welcome Senior Regional Sales Manager for Shure Cassie Berger, CTI Chief Marketing Officer Tobi Tungl and Strategic Accounts Manager for QSC Matthew Swiderski. Since we’re at this event, we discuss the merits of regional shows like this and how they best serve the distributors, manufacturers and dealers in the AV space. We also have time for news! We’ve talked a lot about the MSG Sphere in Las Vegas, and we’re going to continue to discuss it for better or worse. In this case, a little worse as it has been reported in losing $100 million in the financial quarter after opening. This report was announced a week after their Chief Financial Officer resigned. What does a loss like this do to other projects in the same vein? Since we have both Shure and Q-SYS on the latter half and they have experience on partnerships and integration, we discuss the value of manufacturers working together not just for the end-users, but the industry as a whole.
