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.


As the industry continues to diversify and vertical markets converge, many new companies are entering the home technology space. This year, CEDIA EXPO welcomes over 50 new exhibitors to the show floor.

According to the 2011 CEDIA EXPO attendee survey, 60 percent of attendees stated they would be offering security products and services to their clients. The new Security Solutions Pavilion, sponsored by SDM, will offer a space for attendees to get questions answered about entering this space. Another top reason for attending CEDIA EXPO in 2011 was to stay up-to-date on industry trends. The Future Technology Pavilion will provide attendees an opportunity to learn about the newest solutions and business opportunities in the home technology market as they experience a day in the life of the intuitive home.

CEDIA EXPO attendees will also be exposed to a new dedicated area focused on high performance audio and video.
