New Conference Brings Together Best AVL Church Tech and Education for Worship Leaders


The Worship Audio Visual Experience conference, WAVE, is a newer worship conference aimed at bringing together the best resources in audiovisual, lighting, and sound technology to assist worship directors, creative arts directors, and church techs. WAVE unites leading instructors and AVL manufacturers to give production teams and church leadership the skills and knowledge to engage, communicate and grow their churches. 

The WAVE Winter event will be held January 24-26, 2023 at the Avanti Palms Resort & Conference Center in sunny Orlando, Florida. ChurchTechToday readers can save $25 or explore the vendor expo for free with Promo code: CTT.

The WAVE conference was intentionally created to meet the demanding needs within the house of worship community and focuses on utilizing audio, video, and lighting to increase congregation engagement–from the parking lot to the sanctuary.

Many churches look to AVL technology for: 

• Increased attendance because of the immersive feeling

• Increased online engagement because technologies are optimized

• Increased devotion by utilizing technologies to teach
