Keynote Address: AV & AI and the Blueprint for Rapid Global Business Transformation 

Explore the synergistic relationship between Audiovisual Technology (AV) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) as critical drivers in the rapidly evolving global business landscape. As industries worldwide face unprecedented challenges and opportunities, the fusion of AV and AI emerges as a transformative force, redefining creativity, communication, collaboration, and operational efficiency. The AV industry is uniquely positioned to harness the power and scale of AI, but ultimately success will depend on as much "unthinking" the past as it will embracing the future. Are you sure you are ready for the ride?
