Tech & Business Summit Focuses on Converging Technologies at CASTLE Summit
Finding success over the past decade, the Tech & Business Summit will introduce new solutions within the commercial AV, security, entertainment, and lighting industries at first ever CASTLE Summit.
CASTLE Summit, an acronym for Converging Audio/Video Security Technology Lighting and Entertainment, offers an education-oriented tradeshow that addresses the crossover between home automation and smart home technologies, security, integrated A/V systems, and DIY products. Their list of education seminars cover topics such as "Why your customers should buy good lighting fixtures", "What is the profit opportunity for the dealer", and the "the next opportunity for AV integrators." Presenting those talks are stalwart CI companies such as Luxul, Just Add Power, IC Realtime, SurgeX, Atlona, and Origin Acoustics to name just a few.
Between three days of education, two days of exhibits and demos, and a rotating list of one-on-one time with manufacturers, CASTLE is capturing whitespace by offering a lean and efficient schedule.
“Like the Technology & Business Summits, the new CASTLE Summit is structured to help professionals develop, grow, and fortify their business by developing new skills and exploring new revenue streams,” says Mark Cichowski, CEO of Integrator Network. “There is so much to see and do, we are encouraging people to attend multiple days. The CASTLE Summit provides attendees a new opportunity to experience exactly how distinctly different industries can effectively complement each other."
"Every year, more professionals from outside the AV trade are attending the Tech Summit events and we realized it was time to expand our reach and strengthen our connections with commercial AV, lighting, and security systems integrators, manufacturers, distributors and associated pros supporting the market," he added.
With CEDIA as an education partner CASTLE offers top-notch seminars and workshops delivered by entertaining and insightful subject matter experts and providing real-world knowledge. Training on trending technologies, networking and IoT, lighting, security, and network connectivity will be offered while presentations will teach attendees how to sell value, how to make advanced sales, and will detail other business topics. The CASTLE Summit is free to attend and lunch is provided at no charge, enabling attendees to stay for the day — or all three — and soak in all the CASTLE Summit has to offer.
The inaugural CASTLE Summit is conveniently located for attendees from across Florida and the Southeast U.S. "All you really need to do is get there, and we take care of most of the rest," said Cichowski. "As we open our doors to lighting and security professionals for the first time ever, we expect they will see the tremendous benefit such a small investment of time can deliver in terms of knowledge, networking connections, and business growth."
