CEDIA View: Onsite CEDIA EXPO Action You Don’t Want to Miss
CEDIA EXPO is your ticket to the latest and greatest products and technologies in the residential industry. With over 70 new exhibitors, more than 50 product launches and 20 brand new CEDIA University courses, there is plenty to see and do. But there are some things you should make sure you add to your CEDIA EXPO to-do list.
Let’s party Super Bowl-style. That’s right: We’re taking over Georgia Street on Thursday night for the CEDIA EXPO After Hours Party sponsored by Skywalker. Network with fellow industry members, meet old friends and make new ones, and celebrate as we close the first day of the show. Whether you want to relax after a productive day, hold an impromptu meeting with a client or simply kick up your heels and have a good time, you can do it all at the EXPO After Hours Party. All you need is your EXPO badge and ID to partake in the free beer and food, and music from the band Cousin Roger.
Yes, you are allowed to relax at CEDIA EXPO. Take a minute to catch your breath and kick up your feet, without even leaving the show floor. Check out the relaxation lounge, complete with massage chairs, charging stations and free Wi-Fi access.
A new area on the show floor this year is the Security Pavilion. According to the 2011 CEDIA EXPO attendee survey, 60 percent of attendees stated they would be offering security products and services to their clients. The new Security Solutions Pavilion, sponsored by SDM, will provide a space for attendees to get questions answered about entering this space. In addition, ADI will be offering skill challenges in the Security Pavilion, which will run 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, and 9 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturday.
