ALMA at InfoComm!

ALMA International exhibited at InfoComm 2018 in Las Vegas on June 6,7,8, 2018. As always, it was a great show with almost 43,000 attendees and nearly 1000 exhibitors. 
ALMA’s booth had many visitors and presented the opportunity to talk to old friends and to make some new ones. Thank-you to our good friends at InfoComm for hosting us!
A  high point of the show was our meeting with AVIXA CEO, Dave Labuskes at which ALMA Executive Director Barry Vogel, and ALMA President Dan Foley discussed plans and strategies to work together to make our new alliance with InfoComm starting in 2019 a big win for both associations. Look for exciting news in the coming weeks and months. When 2 great organizations work together, everyone wins!
