strong line-up of panel session moderators for InstallMarket,” commented Installation editor Paddy Baker. “Delegates can be assured of a set of highly informative sessions, led by speakers with in-depth knowledge of their verticals.” In addition to the panel sessions – on education, hospitality, broadcast and streaming, retail and transportation – there will also be a keynote presentation from internationally renowned projection artist Ross Ashton. The conference takes place alongside the InstallMarket expo, where leading manufacturers will be displaying their solutions for the installation market, and holding break-out demo and training sessions. Here is our line-up of moderators for the conference panels.
