Exhibit Space On Track For 50 Percent Increase vs. 2003

Framingham, MA - January 14, 2004 - Electronic House Expo (EHX) exhibit space sales continue to accelerate.

EHX Spring 2004 will draw 6,500 attendees to meet with a projected 250 exhibitors in over 120,000 gross square feet of exhibit space. This represents a 50 percent increase vs. the Spring 2003 event and 35 percent increase vs. EHX Fall 2003 to become the largest EHX ever.

"Fed by substantial increases in video displays and home theater products, distributed and high performance audio and home networking gear, EHX continues to grow and diversify as the marketplace for the surging electronics integration channel," said John Galante, Vice President of EH Events & Education. "We are working hard to make sure EHX reflects and helps lead the rapid evolution of the industry."

The upcoming event will feature conference coverage of several new topics including flat panel displays, audio and accessories; Wi -Fi for both home networking and commercial hot spot installation, and high performance audio. Full -day boot camps, keynotes and general sessions will provide coverage of these innovative topics. In addition, EHX is hosting a new half -day VAR Digital Convergence Conference on March 12 to apprise computer resellers and integrators of their opportunities in the residential market and with products beyond the IT realm such as video displays, distributed audio and control systems.
