Another InfoComm has come and gone. However, as this year’s show is over, we are already planning ahead for 2018 in Las Vegas, NV.
InfoComm welcomed and hosted over 44,000 attendees – that’s a 14% increase over last year’s attendance and a 13% increase in comparison to the 2015 Orlando show! InfoComm 2017 was the biggest InfoComm to date. Visitors explored the 545,000 net square feet of exhibits, demo rooms, and special events space. With 950 exhibitors, there was plenty to see from audio, lights, digital signage and more.
Take a look at our quick time lapse video of the show floor:
This year’s theme was “What Will You Create?”
InfoComm is a great platform to show both new and familiar faces what exactly Anchor Audio has created - this year being the Bigfoot AIR and Beacon AIR. We truly enjoyed showcasing and talking about our systems with the many visitors at the Anchor booth, as well as giving away prizes to the thrilled competitors in the Anchor AIR ball basketball arcade game. For those of you that could not join us this year at InfoComm, or didn’t get a chance to stop by our booth, here are some of the highlights.
This year at InfoComm, Anchor’s newest addition to the Anchor AIR product line - the Bigfoot and Beacon AIR - was introduced to the AV world.
Anchor has revolutionized its larger coverage units by adding the AIR wireless companion speaker systems to the Bigfoot and Beacon. Anchor originally released the AIR technology in June 2016 with their flagship speaker the Liberty Platinum and also implemented the AIR wireless technology in the Megavox and Go Getter throughout the year. Visitors to the show were eager to test the Bigfoot and Beacon AIR systems, witnessing the wireless connectivity between units provided by the AIR transmitter to the built-in receiver.

To celebrate the release of the Bigfoot and Beacon AIR, we had our AIR ball basketball arcade game at InfoComm this year. The game was a blast, and visitors could play against each other as either Team Beacon or Team Bigfoot.
Our Anchor referee, JJ Arnold, was giving away awesome Anchor Audio t-shirts and free drink coupons for our daily happy hour to everyone who played.
We had some great coverage of the Bigfoot and Beacon AIR during InfoComm. Check out some of the videos and podcasts below.
