For decades, custom electronics integrators have relied on CES to get a pulse check on the future of video, audio, networks and other cutting edge consumer technologies.

CES is the place where CE Pros learn what their customers will be asking for six months later and make connections with the manufacturers that will help them deliver quality products and services.

CEPro@CES is designed to enhance the experience of custom electronics companies at CES.

CE Pro Exhibits at CES

You’ll find great suppliers like the PowerHouse Alliance, Millionaire Gallery, HAI by Leviton and Adrian Technology at the CE Pro at CES exhibit zone in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

There are also hundreds of manufacturers, distributors and service providers that you’ll want to see in other parts of the convention center and at the Venetian Hotel ballroom and suites (be sure to visit the high performance audio exhibitors there).

CEDIA Learning Labs Celebrate First Anniversary
The CEDIA Learning Labs, which started as a gleam in the eye of CEDIA Education Council head Mike Creeden of M+R Digital Innovations, celebrated their one-year anniversary with some pomp and ceremony.

CEDIA leaders and sponsors gathered for some cookies and congratulations outside the lab rooms at CEDIA Expo 2009 in the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.

The four hands-on training labs are a venue for dealers and their technicians to “get their hands dirty” performing some actual installation tasks while being educated at the same time. The labs were sponsored by ADI, which pulled together a myriad of manufacturers to help fulfill the vision.

The four labs were:
  • Cable, Connectors and Testing
  • Video Display Technologies and Calibration
  • Computers
  • Audio and Component Installation
Tom Polson, president of ADI, said that the distributor was committed to the bringing hands-on education to CEDIA. “I can promise you that we will continue to be here,” he said.

How ‘Green’ is CEDIA Expo 2009?
Can a trade show focusing on home electronics be green? CEDIA is certainly trying.

CEDIA Expo 2009, being held this week in Atlanta, has made some green initiatives such as eliminating paper from educational course guides.

According to the organization, last year CEDIA saved more than 10,000 pounds of paper by reducing print quantities, 9,000 of which was saved by moving to a paperless format for the CEDIA University course participant guides.

CEDIA is again offering its participants a chance to offset their carbon emissions from travel by donating $5 to the CarbonFund.org. Last year's CEDIA member donations went towards CarbonFund.org's reforestation projects.

There are bound to be more green electronics at the Expo, and CEDIA will mark the signs of companies exhibiting green products with a green icon (see above) in the showfloor pocket map, exhibitor signage, and the show directory.

There are two green sessions…

Colorado vNet Downsizes CEDIA Expo 2009 Booth, Supersizes Training
Colorado vNet, instead of having a mega-booth at CEDIA Expo 2009, has opted for a smaller presence on the showfloor. It's using the event to kick off its 60-city “Ultimate Control Tour”.

“We have to spend our marketing dollars wisely — just as any business in this economy," says Scott Stephenson, Colorado vNet director of marketing. "We questioned if it was more important to spend gobs of money to ship our 40 x 50 booth to CEDIA — or provide the support necessary for our dealers to close more business.

"We could have pulled out of the show altogether like many other companies, but we chose to both support the CEDIA organization and our dealers, whether they attend CEDIA or not.”

Colorado vNet still has a 30 x 30-foot exhibit space, booth No. 2637.

First Stop, Atlanta

The road show will journey across the United…
