CE Pro Summit Recap: Networking, Business, Education Thrive

This 90-second video wrap-up from the just-concluded CE Pro Summit in Washington, D.C. offers a glimpse into the festivities where nearly 400 attendees discussed key topics for the custom installation industry.


“The best event I have ever attended.”

“This was fantastic.”

“I learned a lot.”


Those are just a few of the comments I heard from both integrators and vendors in attendance at the just-concluded CE Pro Summit this week at the Gaylord National Resort in National Harbor, Md., just outside Washington, D.C.

The hosted event had 400 total attendees who networked, discussed business models, sales techniques, software usage, company valuations, competitive factors and more. They also met with more than 100 sponsors who were on hand for boardroom meetings and one-on-one discussions. The group even enjoyed a Potomac River cruise.
