S14 Solutions Day at COMM-TEC for the 10th time
“Business is done with people” – that was also the motto of the S14 Solutions Day in 2018 on September 25 and 26 at COMM-TEC in Uhingen.
The AV industry met for the tenth time on September 26 in Uhingen on the company grounds of COMM-TEC GmbH, the leading distributor for AV media technology. With the first event nine years ago, COMM-TEC created an ideal platform for networking between manufacturers, the specialized dealers, integrators, planners, end users, associations, and the trade press of the AV industry at the location in Uhingen.
In the meantime, the S14 Solutions Day has established itself with more than 500 national and international participants this year, besides the ISE in Amsterdam, as the most important and annually recurring fixed date for the entire AV industry. In addition to interesting and informative lectures and workshops, more than 40 exhibitors presented the latest products and solutions from the AV industry in the trade exhibition covering an area of around 1,000 m2. COMM-TEC has relied from the beginning on a mix of a big trade exhibition, workshops on highly current themes, and personal exchange of ideas with short channels to manufacturers and experts.
COMM-TEC and VIVATEQ merge
The COMM-TEC Group reacts with the merger to the increasing demand for VIVATEQ products in commercial applications and makes the entire portfolio available here to both providers in the residential segment and to system integrators in the commercial segment. COMM-TEC made the product highlights, system solutions, and application possibilities come alive in an exhibition area of around 40 m2. The VIVATEQ portfolio encompasses the solutions of 13 well-known Pro AV manufacturers in the categories Smart Home and Smart Business Control, Signal Management, Loudspeakers and Amplifiers, Multi-Room Audio, and Network Solutions.
