As a chance to finally meet in person over 80 of the US team and properly welcome them to GPA, InfoComm 2022 was set to be a big event from the beginning.
Here’s our favourite 10 moments from GPA @ InfoComm22
Our first in-person GPA Academy was held over 2.5 days ahead of the opening of the InfoComm show. As part of the Academy, the participants learnt about all the GPA processes and workflows, structure and tools as well as market positioning and key differentiators.
All graduates received their certificate at the end of the Academy having completed their full training.
Congratulations to all 30 GPA Academy graduates!
Fireside Chat with Ilya Bukshteyn
It was a packed house when Ilya Bukshteyn, VP of Microsoft Teams Devices and Calling joined us remotely over Microsoft Teams in our global lounge for a fireside chat with Byron Tarry from GPA, Tom Egan and Peggy Martinus from Magenium Solutions.
Ilya shared some more insights and updates on the Microsoft Teams roadmap of MTRs and asked all our customers for questions and feedback.
Leaving the session, it was clear that Microsoft have more features to be released for Teams that will impact the experience in the meeting room and revolve all around hybrid working to try and make every experience over Teams no matter where you are, a natural and native experience for all users.
GPA’s Global Lounge
It was great to see our Global Lounge buzzing over two days with customer and partner meetings. We were able to meet 1-1 to discuss program management, global standardization, managed services and more, as well as introduce customers to representatives from our team all around the world.
Wandering the show floor
The InfoComm Show gave us a chance to reconnect and talk about meeting space solutions, executive/townhall broadcast production and managed services from our booth. The booth was constantly buzzing over the three days as we shared our insights on global AV trends.
AVIXA’s welcome to GPA Academy
David Labuskes, CEO of AVIXA, joined GPA to share some updates from AVIXA. David shed some light on AVIXA Xchange and shared some insights on this new industry platform and the role this will play in connecting us all together as integrators, suppliers, manufacturers, consultants and customers.

Program Management Customer Session
Enterprise Practice Manager Jason Roberts and Enterprise Delivery Manager Zach Valigura from GPA United States sat down with Donald Mastro our GPA VP of Sales in our Global Lounge to discuss the responsibility faced when architecting and managing the largest program deployments.
During this session with customers, Zach and Jason shared some behind-the-scenes learning from four of our large program roll outs which led to customers having more of an awareness around our global program management approach and a better understanding of the value program management plays in global delivery.
The Boom with Brad Sousa
Brad Sousa, CTO from GPA United States was a highlight of our Summit sharing his insights on the tech adoption lifecycle and the shift we have seen over the pandemic. It was a real BOOM moment for all over the last two years as we stepped over the chasm meet the needs of our customers, adapting and adjusting quickly to the change in market and business priorities.
The Booth Experience
The show gave us a chance to reconnect and talk about meeting space solutions, executive/townhall broadcast production and managed services from our booth.
At the booth we had over 250 unique customers visit which was incredible. The booth was constantly buzzing over the three days as we shared our insights on global AV trends.
Our Ride in Vegas
We needed the largest car for the largest AV systems integrator in the world! The GPA and Intel Corporation stretch hummer hit the streets of Las Vegas to give our customers and partners a lift to the show and events each day. It was such a great way to get around Vegas and spend more quality time together!
Viva Las Vegas Networking Event
After four years since the last InfoComm in Las Vegas, it was time to celebrate being together again with our top customers and partners in person. In typical GPA style, we dressed in our best Vegas-inspired attire to add a little sparkle to the evening.
