Blustream Connectivity Roadshow


At Blustream, delivering market leading training and technical support are some of our key objectives. Off the back of our successful 2015 UK training roadshow we have put together a specialist one day workshop that encompasses some of the key connectivity challenges that face all AV installers. We have partnered with some industry experts to deliver their extensive knowledge of AV distribution and connectivity. Our objective is to provide an excellent knowledge base regarding new industry standards and explain some of the solutions available to stay ahead of the market.

All of our training courses are free to attend for industry partners and are perfectly suited to installers with varied levels of experience and confidence. All attendees will be fed and watered throughout the day, including a buffet lunch and alcoholic refreshments for those who make it to the end of the course.

Doors will be open from 10:00am for a welcome tea and coffee.
