Time to sign up to the next EI Live! Tech Talk where we look to the future of the industry and get the thoughts of industry luminary Charlie Kindel, Chief Product and Technology Officer at SnapAV, former Senior VP of Products and Services at Control4 and one of the key players in developing the Alexa Smart Home platform.
The Tomorrows world of the CI industry
Thursday, 6th August, 2020 3:00 PM – 3:30 PM BST
Over 100 industry professionals signed up for the first EI Live! Tech Talk marking a major success for the first edition of this monthly on-line learning experience.
Working as a cousin to the EI Live! Tech talks that take place at EI Live! show, this new webinar initiative was developed to offer a chance to learn and participate in a series of lively forums on important aspects of the industry now and for the future.
The first subject the series talked was Smart Cities, with some really insightful and useful observations coming from our panel of industry figures and special guest for that session Phil Lamb, Senior Vice President, SmartRent, Inc UK.
The Tomorrow’s World of the CI Industry
For this next edition the team wants to take a look into the future, things that might be just about to happen and things that although a way off, will still be significant for the industry.
The success of the first session is underlined by SnapAV issuing its own press release to announce Charlie’s involvement. The company quoted our moderator and presenter for EI Live! Tech Talk, Davy Currie, “Charlie is the perfect tech visionary to cast a far ranging look at both the past of the CI industry as well as its future in all of its rich and varied forms. As the person most responsible for the design and development of more than 4,700 products across 20 distinct product categories, Charlie is uniquely qualified to present and elaborate on his vision of the industry’s future.”
Charlie added, “I am honored to participate in this groundbreaking series. The first edition provided a compelling look at the future of Smart Cities and it is my hope that attendees of the second session will come away from it with the same degree of enthusiasm that I have for the future of the CI industry. More than ever, particularly during this time of COVID, we are seeing and experiencing how AV and IT technologies are coming together in new and exciting ways to help humanity connect, communicate and collaborate as never before.
“The pandemic is challenging all of us to re-imagine the role played by integrated AV and IT technologies in every part of our lives. I look forward to exploring the implications of this trend for all of us who serve in this industry.”
Davy is the Managing Director of Infracore Home Technology Consultancy, Founder of Infracore Group (a new start-up accelerator for the AV & Integrated Systems sector) and sits on a board as Non-Executive Director with two other home technology companies.
Davy’s knowledge of the industry makes him an ideal presenter and moderator for the series.
Additional panelists for this outing will include Will Hopkins CEO of the Intrinsic group, a global leader in the field of smart homes and future technologies; Chris Turner, Founder of Faradite, a smart home accessories/sensor manufacturer and Daniel J Sait, the founding Editor of Essential Install and Group Editor of All Things Media ltd.
So join us for what is bound to be a lively and informative event where every aspect of the CI industry and where it might go yet will be discussed. Discover the future, today!
