The leadership teams of InfoComm International and UBTech/University Business will collaborate on conference programming and promotional initiatives to offer expanded participation opportunities for higher education leaders at the flagship annual conferences of both organizations.

The UBTech and InfoComm conferences occur back‐to­‐back in June each year, giving attendees the opportunity to participate in two important conferences in the higher education AV, IT, and technology arenas. The events are held in Las Vegas in even-­numbered years and Orlando in odd-­numbered years.

The new collaborative alliance begins immediately, with an initial focus on the 2016 events: UBTech 2016 at The Mirage in Las Vegas, June 6-8, and InfoComm 2016 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 4-­10.

“Attendees at InfoComm and UBTech are end-­users and decision-makers in AV and IT. Our conferences are complementary, and attendees from InfoComm and from UBTech will now get increased value at both events,” said David Labuskes, CEO of InfoComm International.

“We’re excited about the new alliance between InfoComm and UBTech,” said Daniel E. Kinnaman, president of UBTech. “It creates additional opportunities for campus AV and IT leaders to get more out of their conference experience than ever before.”

InfoComm and UBTech will launch a series of cross-­promotional efforts and will announce additional programming and registration initiatives in the coming weeks, encouraging campus leaders to attend both events in 2016.

InfoComm International is the international trade association representing the professional audiovisual and information communications industries. InfoComm has more than 5,000 members, including manufacturers, systems integrators, dealers and distributors, independent consultants, programmers, rental and staging companies, end-­users and multimedia professionals from more than 80 countries.

UBTech is an annual national summit on higher education AV, IT, technological innovation, institutional leadership, and student success, delivering focused high-­‐level conversation and collaboration on how technology is shaping campus leadership practice.
