INDIANAPOLIS, July 19, 2012 --Identifying new products and companies was the primary reason for attending CEDIA EXPO in 2011, according to the 2011 CEDIA EXPO attendee survey. This year CEDIA EXPO will deliver even more ways for attendees to discover new products and explore new business opportunities.
