IWCE 2019 Recap

Written by The JVCKENWOOD Team on 3/19/19 11:09 AM

The International Wireless Conference and Expo was back in Las Vegas this year and packed with exciting new announcements. Almost 7,000 professionals from the government, public safety, transportation, utilities and enterprises gathered at the Las Vegas Convention Center to participate in the premier event for critical communications. 

Critical communications professionals received an exclusive look at the latest product announcements and advanced critical communications solutions from JVCKENWOOD. 


If you weren’t able to join us at the show or just want to look back at the event, check out some of our favorite moments from the 2019 International Wireless Communications Expo.


Annual KENWOOD Dealer Meeting & Training 
We kicked off the week with our Annual KENWOOD Dealer Meeting and Training Day packed with educational and training sessions to get our team excited for our new innovations planned for 2019. 




Viking VM7000 All-Band, Multi-Deck Mobile
The VM7000 was a highlight for the many agencies that require communication across multiple frequency bands. With the VM7000 All-Band Multi-Deck Mobile, you can simultaneously receive and display up to four bands so you never miss a call. The “select” and “unselect” speakers give you the option for audio control similar to a dispatch console. Download the VM7000 product sheet now to learn more.
