On the following two days, September 16-17, CEDIA Expo Virtual Experience programming will take place and include a series of Tech Talks, Keynotes, Design + Connection track, CE Pro Fireside Chats, and TechBites. Among the keynotes planned is an exciting roundtable discussion with all the industry buying groups.
