The Orlando show drew record crowds.

InfoComm (infocomm.com), North America’s largest audiovisual trade show, welcomed more than 40,000 visitors for the first time in its history at the 2017 event, held in Orlando, FL from June 14-16. By the time the doors closed for the week, InfoComm 2017 had logged 44,077 registered attendees from 50 states and 117 countries.

The show’s 950 exhibitors anchored a massive expo that spanned more than 545,000 net square feet of exhibits, demo rooms, and special events space, making it the biggest InfoComm ever. From the audio side, one of the noticeable improvements was locating the 21 demo rooms just outside of the pro audio section of the hall — a major convenience, especially compared to previous Orlando shows where some company’s demo facilities were located in a hard to find basement area.

However, for those who survived the week of thunderstorms, lightning-related travel delays (my incoming flight was diverted to Tampa) and the typically horrible hour (or more) traffic jams getting out of the convention center area, a treasure trove of cool new products for the audio production professional made it all worthwhile.

There was plenty to see — and hear. Here are a few of the highlights.
