InfoComm answers calls to raise awareness of CTS benefits

InfoComm International is responding to calls for it to raise awareness of the benefits of InfoComm membership in the UK by establishing two working groups.

The announcement follows an audience research programme carried out by the association’s UK Task Force, which also showed that there was a demand for locally-focused education with an emphasis on face-to-face training.

Chris Lavelle, regional manager of UK and Ireland for InfoComm International, said that the association had responded by establishing two new working groups, one dedicated to Marketing and Communications, the second to Training and Education.

The Marketing and Communications group will comprise Sarah Joyce , general manager of HR, Electrosonic; Deborah Jones, AV/IT sales manager, QEII Conference Centre; Gordon Innocent, chairman, RGB Communications; and Andrew Smith, senior associate, Kramer Electronics.

Frank Sheehan, director, Visual Acuity Ltd(Chair); Jim Sheach, HOD AV, University of Edinburgh and Scott Burges, business development director, Creative Technology London form the Training and Education group.

The two groups are set to report to the next UK Task Force meeting on 12 September. The Task Force then aims to prepare a series of suggestions for submission to the InfoComm International Board.
