When we asked AV firms about themselves, we asked for a little insight into their business prospects. And get this: Of all the companies that submitted information for the PRO AV 60, more than half said they expected to close our a brutal 2009 with more revenue than they had in 2008. Only 21 percent expected less revenue and about 28 percent expected a flat year.

We also asked them to characterize the financial health of the pro AV industry going forward. A whopping 70 percent felt the industry would enjoy slight to moderate growth while only 16 percent expected things to be flat to down (14 percent were looking at "strong" growth in the future).

These PRO AV 60 firms said they expect significantly more revenue in 2010...30 percent or more!
