The event will now be known as “The Home Technology Event 2010 in association with CEDIA”. This according to CEDIA will broaden its appeal to new custom installation, specifier and design professional audiences which will enable the show to move forward.
CEDIA Chairman, Robert Hallam explained “One of the challenges we faced was communicating the meaning and relevance of CEDIA Expo to those unfamiliar with the association and what it represents. This new name and identity will help broaden the appeal of the custom installation industry and make the event more accessible to new audiences. We are very excited about this latest evolution of the show but also remain committed to ensuring that it continues to provide the key platform in the calendar for education and doing business. It is our responsibility, as the trade association, to create the environment which helps the industry achieve both these objectives.”
Two of the most popular initiatives of the 2009 event were the Show Floor Seminar Theatre and the Designing Interiors with Technology conference. With this in mind CEDIA intend to make these initiative in 2010 bigger and better.
The Show Floor Theatre recognised the need to provide core educational elements to members outside of a formal classroom setting. These sessions gave crucial updates on technology and the market and free of charge.
The “Designing Interiors With Technology” a successful with more than 110 design professionals attending the event and CEDIA will look to offer an enhanced programme again next year.
The Home Technology Event 2010 promises to be exciting, redefining and a fantastic vehicle for the future growth and prosperity of the residential custom installation industry as a whole.
