AV Week Activities Successfully Promote AV Industry in Utah

Wheel of Fortune

Listen employees are ready to play Wheel of Fortune.

Listen Technologies Corporation joined a host of companies and organizations from Utah and around the world to celebrate AV week October 17 – 23, 2010. AV Week is InfoComm International’s annual event to promote the audio-visual industry and its importance in the daily lives of consumers.

In preparation of AV Week, Listen Technologies secured proclamations for AV Week from Utah Governor Gary Herbert, Salt Lake County Mayor Peter Corroon, and Bluffdale City Mayor Derk Timothy.

Listen selected the Hearing Loss Association of America and its Walk4Hearing as a charity to support as part of AV Week. The Listen Trek Team raised just over $2,800 through combined efforts of reaching out to family and friends asking for donations and hosting a Carnival fundraiser. These efforts helped the Salt Lake City Walk4Hearing exceed its $25K goal by raising over $33K.
“We are so appreciative of the monies raised by the Listen Trek team,? noted Robin Traveller, Salt Lake Walk4Hearing Chair. “The day was great, and there are so many who will benefit from our success.?

The Utah Women Tech Council’s October Tech Talk featured a discussion on “New Audio Technologies – from Hearing Aids to Headphones. Kathy Landon, Sonic Innovations and Kristin Rector, Listen Technologies discussed up-to-date audio devices, from hearing aids for the disabled to audio systems that bridge multiple sources for collaborative communication.

On Monday, October 18 over 20 guests were taken on a behind-the-scenes tour of the Utah Opera’s production of La Bohème. Guests were guided through the intricacies of producing a main-stage opera as well as some of the AV elements that are incorporated into an opera production like La Bohème.

Employees concluded the events of AV Week with a competitive round of Wheel of Fortune. Participants were put into teams to test their Listen knowledge. “It was a fun, educational way to spend my lunch hour.? stated Jodi Reese, FM/IR Sales Specialist for Listen Technologies. “We are a pretty competitive group and pride ourselves on our job and industry knowledge.?
