HOLLYWOOD, FL, August 25, 2003 - The Independent Professional Representatives Organization (IPRO) has scheduled its annual CEDIA reception during the 2003 Expo in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The reception also marks IPRO's 15th year of operation, creating a special occasion for members and non -members to establish new connections and exchange notes on business strategy.


"With IPRO turning fifteen, our reception at CEDIA EXPO 2003 marks a special milestone this time around," said Andrew Ard, president of IPRO. "A lot has happened since we all last gathered at the IPRO Conference in June, and the reception will let us catch up. It's a good chance to talk about what we've seen at the Expo as well as how things are moving in our own professional experience. The reception has always been a lot of fun, and I look forward to seeing my fellow reps at the show."

IPRO's Reception & 15th Birthday Celebration is slated for Saturday, September 6th in room 106 of the Indianapolis Convention Center. Refreshments will be available during the party, scheduled between 4:30 PM and 6:00 PM.
