CEDIA and Integrate EXPO Announce Partnership

CEDIA EXPO Asia Pacific and Integrate EXPO set to combine

SYDNEY, (February 26, 2013) - The Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (CEDIA) in partnership with Diversified Exhibitions have joined forces to offer the electronic systems professional industry the most comprehensive tradeshow offering in Australia. The combining of CEDIA EXPO and Integrate EXPO into one event is set to become the signature show for professional, commercial and residential integrators in Asia Pacific.


"Collectively, CEDIA members have been expressing their vote in favour for both organisations to unite," said executive director Stephen Miller of CEDIA Asia Pacific. "This partnership sets the stage in furthering the growth of the electronic systems industry in Asia Pacific and making the show the largest in the region."

"The importance of partnerships like this in the globalisation of services to the industry for CEDIA is vital," said CEDIA Asia Pacific chairman, Len Wallis. "We exist for our members, because of our members. This partnership opens the door to continued cooperation across the region."

According to the CEDIA Asia Pacific EXPO chair Alexis Caldwell, "This is a huge benefit to the entire industry and will be known as "The Show" to attend as it will provide a single platform for the professional, residential and commercial market."

CEDIA EXPO Asia Pacific 2013 originally scheduled for July in the Gold Coast will now be part of Integrate EXPO scheduled for August 27-29 in Darling Harbour, Australia at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre. Additional details about the partnership will be released in the coming months. Questions regarding the partnership may be directed to CEDIA Asia Pacific at +61 2 9666 1677 or info@cedia.com.au.
