On October 29 & 30, 2014, Bowen Technovation hosted a very unique exhibit and immersive theater design conference. We invited museums, science centers, architects, exhibit design firms, cultural/nature center/state park staff, planetarium managers/technicians, etc.

The most important part of Expo was the two days of detailed workshop sessions by BT staff and personnel from major manufacturers. Attendees received an unsurpassed level of useful information. The nation's major audio-video-lighting-control equipment/software companies had representatives and product at the event.

The Workshop Classroom

A classroom setting (separate from the Expo Hall) allowed manufacturers and BT staff to conduct classes focusing on new technologies as they relate to exhibit and presentation systems. These were intended as professional development workshops, not sales pitches.

The Product Expo

This is where audio-video-lighting-control product exhibitors met with our guests, and demo exhibit-oriented equipment and software.
