CEDIA To Discuss Business Techniques Via Twitter

New CEDIA EXPO offering will debate the merits of old and new business practices.


CE Pro Editors · June 15, 2011

The Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (CEDIA) has announced a new CEDIA EXPO feature: the Old School vs. New School debate and panel discussion. The Old School vs. New School debate will feature a Twitter-based discussion between CEDIA members on the merits of both new and established business practices. The debate will wrap up with an in-person panel discussion at CEDIA EXPO 2011.

Attendees can follow the @CEDIA_OldSchool and @CEDIA_NewSchool teams on Twitter as they battle out why they do the things they do when it comes to technology, business, sales and training. CEDIA has recruited volunteers to join each team and has launched the debate on Twitter today. Leading the @CEDIA_OldSchool team is industry veteran Frank White, while rookie Ian Bryant will lead the @CEDIA_NewSchool team. Attendees are encouraged to participate in the conversation and can also follow the event hashtag #CEDIA11.

“The Old School vs. New School discussion will set the stage for a real-time debate between two strong perspectives in the industry,” said CEDIA CEO Utz Baldwin. “While there will be some points of disagreement, we’re sure each side has something to learn from the other, and we look forward to seeing the educational takeaways presented during the panel discussion at CEDIA EXPO.”

Each week a new topic will be introduced for discussion. Slated topics include control, financials, retrofit, marketing, and more. The teams will gather at CEDIA EXPO on Friday, September 9 from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. for the final Old School vs. New School debate and panel discussion. The panel discussion is free to attend.
