Minneapolis, Minnesota – CEDIA Expo, the annual trade show for the Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association, is fast supplanting CES as the premier trade show for the home audio/video industry. The reason is simple: tighter focus. Compared to the sprawling octopus of CES, CEDIA is manageably contained within a single site, where the interests of all 20,000 attendees converge specifically on home theater. The result is that visitors receive more individual attention and higher quality of information, while exhibitors are assured a higher percentage of meaningful business contacts. Manufacturers consistently express a preference for exhibiting at CEDIA, and several prominent names are pulling out of the January CES altogether. As the last big showcase opportunity before the all-important holiday spending season, this year's CEDIA Expo at the Minneapolis Convention Center proved a goldmine of new product and technology rollouts. Enjoy our exclusive tour of the latest toys.
