The Future Technology Pavilion

Last year CEDIA unveiled The Future Technology Pavilion on the tradeshow floor. The 2011 pavilion will simulate a future home environment, with rooms focused on technologies for the kitchen, bath, bedroom, game room and garage. Products on display in this year’s pavilion include smart appliances, wireless power for cooking and charging, and immersive gaming. The Future Technology Pavilion provides you insight on what you need to learn now to be profitable later. Make sure your schedule includes a visit to this year’s pavilion.
