The AV User Group will hold its inaugural San Jose CA-area meeting on October 18 at Google in Sunnyvale CA. Chairman Owen Ellis will deliver a welcome and background briefing to the group, which is independent. That will be followed by a series of presentations from manufacturer sponsors. These will be informative sessions about new product developments or initiatives they are working on, for which they would like end-user feedback. The group encourages two-way dialogue between the end users and the manufacturers presenting.
The sessions will be interspersed with coffee breaks to provide networking opportunities to attendees. In addition, there will be a presentation and discussion opportunity with AVIXA. After the meeting, the group is offering an evening networking session at 6pm. Over drinks at a local bar, attendees will have more opportunity to network with their peers and with local audiovisual trade suppliers. All food and drink will be paid for by the AV User Group.
The group is free to end-user members and all funding comes from sponsorship.
