CEDIA View: 5 Experiences You Don’t Want to Miss at CEDIA EXPO
Maybe you’re reading this column as you pack up to head to Denver, or perhaps you’re perusing the pages of Technology Integrator as you sit on a flight. It could be that you’re at the Colorado Convention Center now, where you’ve just picked up this magazine. But regardless of where you are in your CEDIA EXPO journey, we’d like to offer some sage advice on a few things you don’t want to miss at CEDIA EXPO 2013.
Just in case you haven’t yet heard, CEDIA is bringing two power-house keynotes to EXPO this year. Tony Fadell, the CEO of Nest, will present the Opening Keynote. As the former senior vice president of Apple’s iPod division, Fadell has mastered the understanding of the design process, and will share his unique view regarding where he thinks the industry is going.
Gene Marks from The Marks Group, P.C., will present the second keynote, “Your Business, Your Future, Profiting Under Obama: How Smart Business People Will Succeed During the President’s Second Term.
Marks writes for The New York Times, Forbes, The Huffington Post, and other noted publications, and is known for his non-partisan approach that helps business owners understand the facts so they can make the right decisions long-term. As a small business owner himself, Marks will share what his company and other winning companies are doing to ensure growth, profits and success during the next few years.
The Opening Keynote presented by Tony Fadell will take place on Wed., Sept. 25 at 5:30 p.m. in the Four Seasons Ballroom 4 of the Colorado Convention Center.
Gene Marks’ Keynote will take place Thurs., Sept. 26, from 1:30 to 3 p.m. in Four Seasons Ballroom 1.
As an added bonus, attendance to both of these sessions is completely free!
