I am pleased to greet you on this occasion and thank them for the support they have given TecnoMultimedia InfoComm.

When we started we wanted Congress in 2010 deliver engineers, installers, integrators, administrators and students, talks to enable them to deepen their knowledge chores from their peers and other industry-related professionals. Today, in the second version in Mexico and the third year in Colombia, we offer an academic program endorsed and provided by such an important sector as it is InfoComm institution.

As they say in Colombia, we started the year with the batteries installed. We ended 2011 very good news in the industry and especially with a market growth outlook for the AV sector in Latin America that allows us to think of a good 2012.

Do not think that we won a prize or we arrived in fifth place, no, the reality is that we are happy and satisfied by the completion of this 2011 and because soon begin a new year, the fifth year of publication of AVI LATIN AMERICA.

Hi all, it is a pleasure to greet you again.

Some years ago the percentage of sales from different manufacturers of audio systems, video and lighting in Latin America was sparse, it did not exceed 1,5% of annual records of the companies, and not to mention the percentage for investment in the region; however North America and Europe were taking large numbers in all aspects.

Today the situation has changed, although North America and Europe remain important, we can say that there are other regions in the world that are gaining ground in all sectors, especially in technology such as Asia are Pacific and Latin America.

The percentages of sales in Latin America may not exceed 3% of the total sales in the world of any company, but that number reflects how is evolving the market in the region and how they can get to play on it the different companies.

Let's face it, six or seven years ago we saw all the advertising in shopping malls, airports, stadiums, universities go was made, billboards or banners, today we see it in digital signage displays. Previously the churches did not think of installing systems invisible audio or make acoustic conditioning and much less to install lights that consume less energy, but today this is a reality and we will continue to grow because Latin America is for different companies a virgin market, which It requires a lot of technology and infrastructure and that is where distributors, integrators, installers and all industry players we become part of a transformation that will bring excellent systems and technologies to the region.

My proposal is that we unite and show to our end users the importance of new technologies, so I invite you to voice and summon Let's water to its different customers to visit InfoComm TecnoMultimedia to learn the news that the industry has to AVI Latin America, the 9 and 10 November in Plaza Mayor, Medellin, Colombia.
