NEC Display Solutions of America, Inc. is hosting the inaugural Audiovisual and Integrated Experience Association (AVIXA) Women Chicago Metro Group’s Fall Ball, giving women in the local AV industry a new outlet for networking and support. The free event will kick off this evening at 17:30 (Thursday, November 8, 2018) at NEC Display’s new state-of-the-art headquarters and Briefing Center, located at 3250 Lacey Road in Downers Grove, Illinois.
The 2018 Fall Ball will create a forum for Chicago-area women in the AV and tech industry to discuss industry trends and share professional development opportunities, according to Jennifer Cheh, NEC Display Vice President of Marketing and member of AVIXA who told us “At the Fall Ball, we’ll come together to set a vision for our regional Chicago group to provide much-needed support for the women in our industry. The AVIXA Women Chicago Metro Group’s inaugural event will give female AV professionals an opportunity to learn, network and build lasting relationships with their peers.”
AVIXA Women’s Council Local Groups meet regularly in a physical location, with additional groups around the world still forming. While the events are geared toward women, men are also welcome to attend and support fellow professionals in the industry.
Jennifer Cheh said “We need to empower and uplift each other, and hosting quarterly events like these helps us keep the conversation going all year long. We’re thrilled to host this inaugural event, and we especially thank our fellow sponsors who are helping to make the Fall Ball a success.”
Besides NEC Display, the AVIXA Women Chicago Metro Group Fall Ball is sponsored by Crimson AV, Peerless-AV, Shure, and Netrix, LLC. Admission to the event is free of charge.
