Almo Professional A/V, the ProAV industry’s most dynamic distributor, has selected THE rAVe Agency’s LAVNCH platform for its highly successful virtual program, E4v. Part of the award-winning E4 Experience, E4v will occur this fall across three days, Oct. 27-29, 2020, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. EDT. Almo’s spring 2020 E4v utilized the LAVNCH VTS (Virtual Trade Show) version of the LAVNCH platform, and Almo will continue its partnership with THE rAVe Agency for the fall 2020 version of the show.
Almo E4v will focus on relevant topics, such as unified communications and collaboration (UCC), digital signage, professional audio and direct-view LED (dvLED). The live, interactive event is designed to help AV attendees thrive amid a global pandemic. E4v will feature 17 breakout sessions with unique, custom-curated content presented by industry influencers — including Gary Kayye, co-founder and director of THE rAVe Agency; Jonathan Brawn, principal at Brawn Consulting; Chuck Espinoza, senior staff instructor at AVIXA; Tom Kehr, AV systems designer and professional trainer; Jacob Sanders, business development manager at Almo; Kay Sargent, senior principal at HOK; and Craig Recchia, sales application engineer at Peerless-AV. Each day will feature an exclusive roundtable led by the National Systems Contractors Association’s (NSCA’s) Chuck Wilson, executive director, and Tom LeBlanc, director of industry outreach and media channels.
“I am honored that THE rAVe Agency was part of helping to bring the E4v online using the LAVNCH VTS platform,” said Gary Kayye. “VTS allows for both conference and trade show-like features to live side by side, but the experience is filled with engagement, too!”
According to Melody Craigmyle, vice president of marketing and communications for Almo Corporation, “The LAVNCH VTS platform has enabled Almo to successfully expand the E4 program to include a permanent virtual component with live, interactive sessions that allow attendees to earn AVIXA CTS Renewal Units, opening up the opportunity for quality education to more industry professionals than ever before.” She continued, “For the fall E4v, THE rAVe Agency worked with us to deepen the level of engagement possible through the platform so attendees can further customize their experience and maximize their productivity.”
The E4v platform enables Almo to provide AV professionals with free, quality education both live and on demand. Join Almo for the fall 2020 E4v Oct. 27-29 by registering today. Attendees can earn up to 14 AVIXA CTS RUs by participating in the live event. For more information on Almo Professional A/V, please visit AlmoProAV.com.
