Sarah Carroll, founding director for Futuresource Consulting said, “We are sad that we can not physically meet our industry friends at this 7th annual Audio Collaborative event. However, we are delighted to extend access to a wider global audience, thanks to the LAVNCH Platform. Our stellar line up of industry trail blazers and innovators will discuss the whole audio ecosystem and set the scene as to what this looks like in the ‘new normal’ with thought-provoking discussions and presentations specifically designed to ensure audio brands emerge from the crisis as stronger, better positioned and more valuable businesses.”
“I am thrilled to be working with Futuresource again,” said Gary Kayye, co-founder and director of THE rAVe Agency. “I am honored they have selected the LAVNCH Platform to deliver Europe’s premier audio technology conference. Although it will be virtual, attendees will feel like they are inside a conference with engaging features, such as video chat and Q&A.”
