AV Magazine: Developing AV Talent

Now more than ever industry experts of today need to foster the talents of tomorrow – talents that look markedly different to what they did 30+ years ago.

There are now a multitude of unique pathways into the industry, driven mostly by an individual’s forward-thinking innovation and a drive to propel the industry in new directions.

Content creation has become a more important component of successful technology solutions and many AV companies are just beginning to build the skill sets necessary to deliver content-rich, immersive experiences.
