In just a few short weeks, we’ll meet up once again in Indianapolis to celebrate the 23rd CEDIA EXPO!
CEDIA has a lot to celebrate, including a new app (www.cedia.org/app), and a consumer-friendly website that includes unique and original content that’s focused on driving traffic to the site, which in turn helps drive business to CEDIA members.
There’s also one very special resource—a true cause for celebration—that manages to connect CEDIA members, manufacturers, consumers and design/build professionals—and that resource is CEDIA Electronic Lifestyles. The new fall issue takes center stage at CEDIA EXPO. The work of the CEDIA ESC shares the spotlight with the talented architects, interior designers and builders who contribute to the projects that connect homeowners with possibilities and solutions.
The theme for CEDIA EXPO 2012 is, “Own the Network. Own the Home.” CustomRetailer continues to support that notion with monthly columns encouraging our readers to get the education and train the staff they need, in order to capitalize on the growing need for keeping customers connected.
CEDIA’s marketing team is taking to Twitter with an exciting and innovative new approach to growing this year’s CEDIA EXPO. Twitter has become a home for conversation among integrators, PR professionals and manufacturers, and the CEDIA team is tapping into that deep AV community with the #CEDIATweeps competition. Ten finalists are competing to see who can do the best job promoting the 2012 CEDIA Expo.
CustomRetailer’s own Jack Cotter is among the finalists, and we can help him win by following his Tweets at the handle @JackJCotter. CEDIA is giving all ten of the CEDIA Tweeps exclusive news to share about the EXPO and tickets to give away. Connect with Jack to find out how you can attend CEDIA EXPO for free. With the whole CEDIA Tweeps team building the buzz, this year’s EXPO could be the biggest ever.
Celebrations abound at this year’s CEDIA EXPO, including CustomRetailer’s 10th Anniversary EXC!TE Awards party on Thursday, September 6th. Also on deck is the 4th annual Women in CE CEDIA Breakfast on Saturday, September 8th.
Stay connected all year ‘round with CustomRetailer ... and safe travels to Indianapolis!
