Emerald Expositions Acquires Select Assets of EH Media

Alpharetta, GA - August 21, 2018 – Emerald Expositions, a leading operator of business-to-business trade shows in the United States, announces the acquisition of the following key brands serving the technology sector for the built environment:

CE Pro, Commercial Integrator (CI), Campus Safety, Security Sales and Integration (SSI) and Total Tech Summit.

 

This blended package of show and media assets will integrate and strengthen the Emerald Expositions Design Group of trade shows including HD Expo (Hospitality Design), ICFF (formerly the International Contemporary Furniture Fair), the Healthcare Design Conference, GlobalShop and Expo and Design and Construction Week.  Each of these events benefits from the audiences served by this portfolio of technology platforms.  Emerald Expositions acquired the CEDIA Expo platform from CEDIA in January of 2017 establishing a presence in the smart/connected residential and light commercial markets.

 

All of these brands, including CEDIA Expo, allows the Emerald design brands to develop programming, education and connections that make for beautifully designed, safe and increasingly smart/connected spaces

 
“Specifiers of residential and commercial spaces are hungry for insights, strategic partnerships and know-how concerning the intelligent integration of technology in built environments,” said David Loechner, President and CEO Emerald Expositions. “Emerald Expositions is perfectly poised to bring technologists and specifiers together.  The acquisition of these platforms allows for integration into established Emerald Expo design events, as well as to continue to grow and develop the platforms themselves.”

 

The newly acquired brands and CEDIA will have installations at Design and Construction Week, HD Expo and ICFF in 2019.

ELK Products -C1M1 Dual-Path Alarm Communicators with Remote Services

C1M1 offers a truly significant reduction in transmission time in comparison to other communicators that rely on dial capture or data bus decoding.

Installers can remotely upload/download programming changes to M1 controls over IP or cellular using ElkRP2. Consumers can control the M1 remotely via the free ElkLink mobile app and web portal, as well as eKeypad and M1 Touch Pro apps. Other IP-based software and interface partners can connect to the M1 control over the local network through C1M1. C1M1 also provides email/text notifications for arm, disarm, and alarm events.
