Guess the Year: My CEDIA Expo Day Planner

Guess which year I had CEDIA booth appointments with 3Com, Escient, Intel, Intellinet, Smart Corp. and Panja.

Panja's Dave Hill.

I’m still plowing through 20 years of notes, day planners and other stuff collected over the two decades I’ve been following the home systems integration business.

I got a good chuckle out of a day planner for one of those years during CEDIA Expo in Indianapolis, Sept. 23 to Sept. 26.

Can you guess the year?

These were my appointments:

Corey Ferrell (dealer)
Intel – David Nash
Meridian – Bob Stuart
Smart Corp.
Steve Long (dealer, freelancer)
Tony Tangalos (dealer, freelancer)
