Your Community is at CEDIA Expo

CEDIA Expo is much more than the products; it’s about the passion, the excitement, and the connections you make while at the show. CEDIA Expo is the one place to do business, share ideas, and meet contacts that will enhance your life both professionally and personally. The experience cannot be duplicated. The training you take will be valuable, and the products you see could mean big things for your business. When the show floor closes each day, the community aspect has only just begun. CEDIA Expo has a wide variety of special events before, during, and after the show to help you catch up with your AV family. Here’s a breakdown of those events:
