CEDIA EXPO 2006 Attendance: “More than 28,000”
CEDIA confirmed record attendance numbers for CEDIA EXPO 2006. It says more than 28,000 people attended, roughly an eight percent increase over EXPO 2005, making EXPO 2006, in CEDIA’s words, “the largest and most successful trade show in the organization’s 17-year history.”
The show also set a record for its number of exhibitors, said CEDIA, with “more than 600” on hand--”about 100 more exhibitors than EXPO 2005.”
CEDIA also reported that participation in CEDIA University courses was “at its highest level,” attributing the interest to new core curriculums for the Electronic Systems Technician (EST) and Electronic Systems Designer (ESD) colleges, “as well as increased recognition of CEDIA Certification in the marketplace.”
CEDIA said reaction to the new Denver location of the event was “positive across the board,” and that the new fourth day of exhibition time was “appreciated” by the manufacturers.
