Connecting students with the AV industry
The Future AV Professionals programme is a career initiative to connect students from the AV industry with exhibitors and vice versa as well as a platform to introduce students of respective studies to the industry. The aim is to inform and educate the students about the industry, so that they get an insight into how the AV industry is working and that they can experience the ProAV industry first hand. The students should be informed about the possibilities the industry offers, the diverse product and technology range that is encompassed as well as opportunities for professional development. With this programme, ISE would like to make sure that the future generation of AV professionals connects with the industry and creates the foundation for their future career at the best-attended tradeshow for professional AV and electronic systems integration.
The one-day Future AV Professionals programme at ISE 2017 included bus transfer organised by Integrated Systems Events in the morning and evening. It comprised keynote presentations to provide an introduction to the industry, a tradeshow visit in the afternoon to get an insight into the impressive technology exhibited on the Show Floor and a Job Fair. During the Job Fair, students had an opportunity to connect with companies and learn about career possibilities.
The programme took place on 10 February 2017
