Independent manufacturer’s sales representative firm Innovative Consulting and Marketing and its distribution arm Audio Video Warehouse (a member of the Catalyst AV network) are co-sponsoring the 2013 COLAB Spring Lecture Series, featuring seven presentations by leading California, Nevada, and Utah architects that specialize in residential, commercial and public projects. The series runs from March until May.

Innovative Consulting and Audio Video Warehouse, led by principal Paul Brown, serve the Arizona and Nevada markets.
The focus of the Series is to give attendees a chance to learn about special approaches used on the various design projects, as well as provide an opportunity for all to mingle, make new contacts and share ideas. The lectures have been given at three Las Vegas locations: The Art Square Theater, the Amanda Harris Gallery, and Las Vegas Design Center at World Market Center.
Brown said that the events thus far have yielded a turnout of 25-35 attendees comprised mostly of technology integrators, interior designers, and students from the University of Las Vegas.
One of those in attendance was Michael Molina of local integration firm Smart Home Theater who said, "Having Innovative Consulting/Audio Video Warehouse involved in sponsoring events like this allows us to meet architects and designers that we have not been able to approach in the past. This has proven very worthwhile for us.”
There are two remaining lectures, both of which take place at the Amanda Harris Gallery located at 900 South Las Vegas Blvd, #150:
The April 29 session, at 6:00 p.m., will feature architect Anne Mooney of Salt Lake City-based architectural firm Sparano and Mooney.
The May 6 session, at 6:00 p.m. will feature David Baker of San Francisco-based David Baker Architects, a firm specialized in affordable-housing projects.
Those interested in attending can show up or contact COLAB at 702.845.0831 to RSVP.
