  • AV Boot Camp to Set a New Standard for Sales Training - NOW OVER, WATCH OUT FOR DETAILS OF NEXT EVENT

    AV Bootcamp

    The AV Boot Camp is to present a unique FREE event, aimed exclusively at sales people in the UK AV industry. The event will be held at the world-renowned Royal Military Academy in Sandhurst, Berkshire. Attendees will arrive at the RMA early in the evening on Wednesday 12th March for a short briefing and checking in to their rooms on-site, before an informal meal and an excellent opportunity to network.

    On Thursday 13th March, industry professionals will lead attendees through practical workshops and the essential skills of the AV sales process, including selling and communication techniques. The sponsors behind this year’s AV Boot Camp are CUK Audio, Christie, Lightware Visual Engineering and Tack Training International. The sponsors will cover the four key areas of their expertise; audio systems, projection and displays, signal management and sales training. “We’ve thought long and hard about what will most benefit AV integrators, who will be investing their time in attending”, said Carl Tomkins of CUK Audio. “The workshops will feature a mix of classroom and practical activities, with an emphasis on system design. In addition we felt sales training was an essential element. By combining systems knowledge with sales skills we aim to provide integrators with an event that will enhance their expertise in order to grow their business and improve the overall end user experience.”

    Spaces will be limited and early application is strongly recommended. Applications for the AV Boot Camp should be made to enquiries@avbootcamp.co.uk
