Expectations for the co-located CE Pro and Commercial Integrator Summits — being held November 12-14, in Orlando, FL — are higher than ever. And the events are delivering.

As more and more integrators and vendors measure the events they attend for the quality of the engagements had, rather than the sheer number of handshakes, many are turning to these VIP invitation-only style events.

In 2014 the Summits will welcome over 200 decision makers from the nation’s top custom and commercial integration firms.

CE Pro Summit representatives are already booking travel for invited guests from companies, such as:

  • Magnolia
  • ADT
  • VIA International
  • Guardian Protection Services
  • Audio Command Systems

And its co-located sister event, the CI Summit is following suit, with a guest list, including:

  • AVI-SPL
  • Compview
  • Red Thread
  • Technical Innovation
  • ANC Sports

Nearly 50 new integration companies will experience the Summits this year, following the trend of quality over quantity.

“I’m very aspirational and very competitive, so to be in a room full of folks who are the best of the best is fantastic,” says Henry Clifford of Livewire. “I’ve gotten to know a lot of the CE Pro 100 folks and I’ve made some good friendships. I’ve learned some best practices and implemented lessons learned.”

“I can point to the Summit and then point to hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue to our bottom line just as a result of a keynote presentation or a one-off conversation at a cocktail reception or sitting down with someone I didn’t know at dinner,” he says.

With time and growth, the events have gained support not only from integrators, but from the industry’s leading vendors, as well. (See a complete listing of CE Pro Summit and CI Summit Sponsors.)

Boardroom presentation sponsorships for the CE Pro Summit are now 83% sold out and sponsor investments for both Summits are exceeding last year’s by 30%.

Each year, the Summits prove their ability to connect the who’s who of the industry — and connect them in a way that they are able to share best practices, support the growth of each other and move the industry forward.
