InfoComm 2012 in Las Vegas is officially a wrap, with more than 930 exhibitors occupying more than 487,000 net square feet of exhibit and special events space, combined with industry training, certification, special events and more.

InfoComm states that 34,268 AV professionals were in attendance from more than 90 countries, a four percent increase over InfoComm 2011.

“InfoComm continues to be the one tradeshow where most professional AV service providers make their important buying decisions for the year,” states Randal A. Lemke, executive director & CEO of InfoComm International. “The AV marketplace has enthusiastically embraced InfoComm as the place to make their purchasing choices, network with product and service providers, and enhance skills through our robust educational program.”

Registrations for InfoComm University educational courses totaled 6,940, up 15.6 percent over last year.

Super Tuesday, a full-day of advanced instruction for AV pros, attracted 850 registrants in 2012, up 32 percent from 2011.

Attendees come to InfoComm for the diversity of courses on topics ranging from acoustics to videoconferencing. Popular courses were Future Trends and CTS Prep. Other popular classes included Service Level Agreements, Space, Time and Technology: The Future of AV, and AV Signals Gone Wireless.

This year, 145 AV professionals passed the Certified Technology Specialist (CTS) exam onsite, including ProSoundWeb/Live Sound International senior contributing editor Craig Leerman. Twenty-seven passed the CTS-D and two passed the CTS-I.
