In response to an overwhelmingly positive reception to its #DontStopTheEducation series of virtual conference and training events for AV professionals, Sennheiser has announced that it will host a consultant round table on July 16 to discuss the new normal in higher education and conferencing. In addition, the company also announced further interactive online seminars that will explore touchless audio and hybrid learning, and the TeamConnect Ceiling 2 microphone.

Embracing the New Normal: Shifting Technology Trends in Online Conferencing and Remote Learning / Blended Learning
Asia, July 16, 11:00 UAE, 12:30 IST, 15:00 SIN, 15:00 CHN

Over the course of a 90-minute live round-table discussion, the panellists and hosts will take an in-depth look at the ‘new normal’ for corporate meeting spaces and universities and answer some of the most typical and pressing questions that have arisen in the wake of the coronavirus crisis: Are we ready for a post-pandemic technology shift to address the new social distancing norms – and what could this look like for online conferencing and e-learning? How do we continue being engaging and productive with travel restrictions and social distancing in place? And what new tech solutions and ideas would consultants wish to see designed and implemented?

Sennheiser host Kenan Phang will welcome Gerald Stewart (Inhabit Group), Mradul Sharma (3C Design Networks), Ratnesh Javeri (Innovative Systems & Solutions) Robert Soo (Cogent Acoustics) and Stone Yao (Acoustics Design Institute). Registration can be done via the link:
