Tradeshow Week Magazine Honors EHX With "Fast 50" Award

EHX Fall 2003 Expected to Continue Hot Growth Trend

Wayland, MA - September 10, 2003 - Tradeshow Week magazine has recognized Electronic House Expo Fall (EHX) as one of the fifty fastest growing tradeshows in the US and Canada with a 2003 Fast 50 Award. The contest honors the most impressive growth of tradeshows in the United States and Canada over the past three years (2000 -2002).

EHX Fall has grown from a 12,000 gross square foot hotel event to a 60,000+ gross square foot convention center trade show. The upcoming Fall event, which will take place November 10 - 13, is projected to surpass last Fall's record turnout, with over 200 exhibitors and 5,500 attendees expected to take part in the Long Beach, California event.

"We are pleased to be honored by Tradeshow Week magazine as one of the fastest growing events," stated EH Events & Education vice president, John Galante. "EHX continues to grow at a very rapid pace and this Fall appears to be no exception. The amount of exhibit space reserved for the upcoming event is already 40% more than the total space occupied in 2002. As a result, we have expanded the exhibit floor to include a second level of exhibits, " Galante concluded.

Electronic House Expo is the trade show and conference of the $15 billion connected home industry. Held twice annually and sponsored by CEA's TechHome Division and CEDIA, the EHX trade show floor and conference program provide an invaluable forum for information exchange, education and new product demonstrations from leading manufacturers and service providers across the entire connected home spectrum of home networking, automation, entertainment, and security.
