InfoComm 2019 announces attendance figures
InfoComm 2019 has announced its official attendance figures, with 44,129 attendees visting the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. 37% of attendees were first timers, and 18% traveled to the show from 117 countries outside the U.S.

The figures are a slight increase on last year, and are also up on the last time the show was in Orlando (2018 in Las Vegas - 42,811, Orlando 2017 - 44,077).

AVIXA senior vice president of exhibitions Rochelle Richardson said: "The feedback from exhibitors has been outstanding. Many told us they had exceeded past records for booth visitors by early on the second day, an indication of very engaged attendees. And the sheer number of people absorbing our content - everything from the packed room for Tuesday's Emerging Trends Day to the crowds at Center Stage - is some of the best validation we can receive of InfoComm's value to the industry."

A record 312 took the CTS exam, a 23% increase over the prior peak, and 255 passed their exams, a jump of 37% over the prior record. In all, 205 professionals earned their CTS, 30 attained CTS-D, and 20 became CTS-I.

AVIXA CEO Dave Labuskes, said; "In addition to everyone who sat for exams, we had nearly 600 people take our intensive three-day courses to kick off the week, more than at any other InfoComm."
