CEDIA announces full lineup of Talks, to take place during Expo

CEDIA has unveiled the full lineup of CEDIA Talks, which give Expo attendees critical insights on emerging trends, new technologies and best business practices. These 20-minute sessions will all be hosted in the CEDIA Booth (#3635) and are free to all attendees.

“CEDIA Talks have become a big part of our overall program at the CEDIA Expo and I think the reason for their continued popularity is two-fold: One, they are easy to fit into an otherwise busy schedule, all you need is 20 minutes; and two, the content covered in CEDIA Talks is second only to CEDIA training. We’ve got some of our best CEDIA instructors and industry visionaries providing insight,” says CEDIA VP of Emerging Technologies Dave Pedigo.

Twelve CEDIA Talks will take place between Thursday, 7 September and Friday, 8 September.

The line-up for these free 20-minute sessions is as follows:
