CEDIA Expo, the annual event where custom integrators, designers and construction professionals connect, learn and engage, announces registration for CEDIA Expo 2022 is now open.
The largest North American event for the channel, CEDIA Expo 2022 takes place September 29 – October 1, 2022, at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center in Dallas, Texas.
CEDIA Expo 2022 is anticipating a strong live event with over 350 exhibiting brands and more than 150,000-square-feet of exhibits, live audio demo rooms and highly engaging activations.
Following CEDIA Expo 2021’s return to an in-person tradeshow in Indianapolis that was impacted by the COVID delta variant, this year’s three-day event will provide an opportunity for attendees to reconnect with the industry’s leading audio, video, lighting, signal distribution, control systems, energy management, security and emerging market product and solutions manufacturers and suppliers.
Since 2019, the home technology market has experienced remarkable growth and dramatic changes. The pandemic has accelerated technology needs for residential and resimercial customers especially given the rise in hybrid work and learning from home applications.
“The future is big for the home technology market,” says Jason McGraw, CTS, group vice president for CEDIA Expo and KBIS for show owner Emerald. “We are excited for the full return of live, in-person events. This year’s event will be the largest gathering in the residential systems channel in more than three years.
“CEDIA Expo 2022 will feature new technology, emerging trends, education and training opportunities and peer-to-peer connections to drive businesses forward. We are looking forward to returning to Dallas for this year’s event.”
60+ Education Sessions, Networking, Awards and More
Back in Dallas where the event was last staged in 2015 and 2016, CEDIA Expo 2022 also will host CEDIA’s annual conference program on September 28 – September 30. This year’s conference pass features over 60 sessions, including all-new tracks on lighting and wellness.
Attendees can also access free content including an industry keynote, the first-ever Industry Advocacy Town Hall, over 80 manufacturer product training sessions and show floor stage sessions at the Innovation Hub and Smart Stage.
Networking events, including the CE Pro All-Star Band Opening Reception, CE Pro BEST Product & Home of the Year Awards, CEDIA Awards, CEDIA Party, Women in Consumer Technology Luncheon and exhibitors’ social events will allow attendees to reconnect with friends and colleagues.
“CEDIA Expo encompasses all that CEDIA offers under one Texas-sized roof,” says Daryl Friedman, global president and CEO for CEDIA. “For three days, CEDIA will offer its world-class advocacy, connection and education to the home technology community by offering formal training and professional advancement, advocating for regulations that improve our industry and hearing from insightful speakers. It’s simply the premier gathering of the brightest minds in home technology, bar none.”
