Axis Communications officially inaugurated its new Axis Experience Center (AEC) in New York yesterday. The opening took place in conjunction with ISC East. The AEC will provide the region’s business leaders, security professionals and AV integrators direct access to network solutions and dedicated technology specialists.
Located in the Manhattan neighborhood, the Axis Experience Center is easily accessible by public transportation. It also offers a direct view of the Empire State Building and St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
This is the latest addition to Axis’ AEC network in the United States and around the world. AECs are intended to foster business relationships and technological innovation, as well as provide hands-on experience with Axis IP solutions.
The perfect location
Larry Newman, Senior Director of Sales, Axis Communications, described New York as “a global center of culture and business”. Therefore, he said, this is also the perfect location for the newest AEC.
According to Newman, “We look forward to connecting directly with more partners and customers in our efforts to strengthen relationships, foster creativity, and ultimately improve security and business operations through cutting-edge solutions. In New York and beyond, all Axis partners should view our vast AEC network as an extension of their own business, a place where they can meet with their teams, attend training, host their clients and demonstrate our latest solutions.
