Live Design International (LDI) is upon us again in fabulous Las Vegas! Previous iterations have made a splash in the Pro AV market, and this year looks to do the same. Before heading out to LDI, be sure to check out our Las Vegas Trade Show Survival Guide. One of our favorite tips on the list is to check out the industry events while in town. Many of the great networking events and sessions are taking place off of the show floor this year, and we compiled a list of 3 essential events to attend.
1. LDI 5K Fun Run
Friday, November 22 from 6:00AM – 8:00AM
Introducing the first annual LDI 5K Fun Run to be held Friday, November 22 from 6AM to 8AM at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Participants can enjoy post-run beer, water, and donuts, courtesy of Ambersphere Solutions Ltd, the exclusive UK sales, support, service, and training center for Astera, Ayrton, MA Lighting, Robert Juliat, and Zactrack entertainment lighting products.
