The AV User Group opens its doors in Hong Kong

The AV User Group achieved a major milestone gaining a foot hold in all three regions by holding its inaugural meeting in Hong Kong last Friday 22nd April.

Established in London in the late 1990’s and then opening for business in New York in 2012, with this first Hong Kong event they now have a presence in Asia, EMEA and the America’s.

The meeting was hosted by Morgan Stanley at their offices in the International Commerce Centre Tower, Kowloon, and presided over by Owen Ellis, the group’s chairman. It was attended by a cross section of end users from Finance to Leisure and included the local Authority as well as local Infocomm representation.

Attendees were given an introduction to the group, received a selection of presentations from Biamp, Lumi and Logitech along with an industry roundtable discussion. They also benefited from networking opportunities during the registration buffet and coffee breaks.

The group then departed to the Central Bar & Grill in Civic Square for the evening ‘network’ drinks where they were joined by a host of regional industry suppliers from manufacturing, distribution, consulting and systems integration.

Owen Ellis commented ‘It was always our ambition to get the group established in a location in all three regions and we were delighted with both the turnout and positive feedback from everyone who attended’.

The AV User Group are a thriving community of over 500 members, created to further encourage the convergence of AV technology managers and sector suppliers to benefit from knowledge exchange. Meetings take place via quarterly forums to bring the membership community together to promote the effective use of AV communications technology to maintain the skills and knowledge needed to implement AV projects and manage service provision.
