2018 CEDIA Talks - Like TED Talks for the Smart Home
'CEDIA Talks' at Expo 2018 feature 12 short presentations for smart-home pros in areas such as wellness, blockchain, robotics and 'multidimensional light.'
CEDIA, the trade assocation for home-technology pros, returns to Expo 2018 with its popular CEDIA Talks, a series of 20-minute sessions that dive into hot topics with some of the industry’s best and brightest. All CEDIA Talks are free to attend and will be hosted in the CEDIA Booth (#1527) at CEDIA Expo 2018.
