What’s Trending

Talking to industry experts, analysts, and fellow team members we narrowed down some of our predictions of what will be the talk of the show. Here is a sneak peak at some of the trending topics and must see sessions while you are there:

Huddle Rooms are Here to Stay

The huddle room trend has been a debated topic in the industry. One thing is becoming clear though -- they are here to stay. More and more companies are finding the need to have informal meeting rooms for their employees that encourage collaboration and teamwork. Our next challenge as an industry is how can we equip these rooms so they are not just an afterthought, and set them up in a way that enhances the communication experience.

Must see session: 
“The Huddle Room: How To Find the Right Technology Solutions [IS110]”
Thursday, June 7 // 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

User Experience in Meeting Rooms

Gone are the days of spending 10 minutes at the beginning of every meeting just trying to get the TV working. The technology we use in our meeting rooms needs to work together seamlessly and drive value instead of frustration for the end user. Demands are also going beyond just an easy setup and shifting towards what we can learn from our meetings and how advanced technologies can drive a more impactful meeting experience.

Must see session:
“Changes in the Communication and Collaboration Space: End-Users Speak Their Mind [UCCL2]”
Thursday, June 7 // 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Productivity in the Workplace

Productivity gains can come from all aspects of our office life. It is crucial for companies to think about how all of the aspects come together: from the technology we use, to the hardware that fills our rooms, and the office design that pulls it all together. Companies are finding creative ways to remove distractions to allow their teams to focus on driving an impact for the business.

Must see session:
“UC Ecosystems and the Millennial Workflow [IS111]”
Thursday, June 7 // 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

These are just a few of the many incredible sessions that you can find at the conference. Be sure to plan ahead and map out your schedule with InfoComm’s show planner and mobile app.
