There are tech conventions happening just about every week it seems. Each one is usually set towards a specific ideal however. It’s rare that you’ll find a conference that it focused towards a more generalized idea of technology, instead of pigeon-holing a particular subject. The Cedia Expo just happens to be one of the very few aforementioned conventions that just focuses on new technologies. The beauty of this event lies within the unspecified genre of tech that it caters to. Instead, it hones in on essentially any new established technology, no matter what its use may be.
Are you unfamiliar with the Cedia Expo? If you are, you’re going to want to be aware of just what the convention is all about. CEDIA EXPO 2015 is the global showcase of the future home experience. Expand your network, explore growth opportunities, inspire and be inspired alongside the industry’s leading experts and futurists. On top of gaining extraordinary access to the most visionary thinking, products and resources in the world, you’ll have the chance to receive in-depth training and upgrade certifications. Discover life at home like it’s never been experienced before, thanks to the future’s upcoming tech.
Should you attend, you’ll be able to explore hundreds of new audio visual, control, networking, and lighting products. It’s intent on connecting you with the industry’s manufacturers and thousands of like-minded peers who are ready to talk shop. You can even update, or receive, CEDIA certifications and will also be able to receive in-depth, results-oriented training on systems integration and the network.
Not only will you be seeing some of the newest tech to come, and receive different training courses, but you’ll also be witness to just how these new products could shape the future of some of the emerging businesses as well. That’s what it’s all about in the long run; helping businesses grow through technology, and vice versa. The fact that it also takes place right before the holiday season ensures that we’ll be prime time for a slew of new products.

You may be wondering who should be attending this year’s event. If you’re part of the development for the connected home, you should be attending this year. Everyone from electricians, manufacturers, and distributors, to IT professionals, business owners, and manufacturer representatives are expected to show up. Even if you’re far away from the convention location this year, they do offer travel discounts from their website.
The Cedia Expo registration opens July 8, and you can register directly from the main website. If you do end up registering, the Cedia Expo does off the training pass.
The CEDIA Training Pass is one of the ways CEDIA members can save on their training. CEDIA members can attend an unlimited number of CEDIA Training sessions at EXPO excluding CEDIA Certification exam fees and the CEDIA Outreach Instructor course. Pass holders must still register for the classes they wish to attend, as all courses are first-come, first-serve, and they sell out. Naturally, if you’re looking to get some good training during the conference, you’re going to hit up the Training Pass.
It’s not very often that we see these types of events pop up. These general tech conventions are easily some of the the most interesting and most beneficial conventions to attend in today’s time. With new technologies constantly coming out, it’s important to stay on top of all the new tech trends. The 2015 Cedia Exop is looking to make sure it does just that for you.
