CEDIA Partners on Education, Marketing for CE Pro Summit

As part of a broader deal with exhibition planner AE Ventures, CEDIA will partner with CE Pro on the education and marketing for the CE Pro Summit upcoming Nov. 2-4 in Atlanta.


CEDIA announced that it will sponsor the CE Pro Summit in Atlanta this November 2-4, 2016. The announcement is part of a larger partnership the association has made with exhibition organizer AE Ventures, whose line-up of events includes the TecHomeX NextGen trade show, March 21-23, 2016 in Orlando, Fla. and the TecHome Builder Summit, December 7-9 in Fort Worth, Texas, in addition to the CE Pro Summit. 

CEDIA will provide assistance in promoting attendance and sponsorship of the events, contribute to the education/general session content of the events and participate in the exhibits — serving as a source of information and advice to the broad cross-section of audiences including builders, architects, remodelers, real estate developers, realtors, contractors of all kinds and, of course, home technology integration/contracting companies.

The CE Pro Summit is in its 10th year and was formerly known as the CE Pro 100 Summit. The event brings together the highest-revenue custom installation firms in the industry for idea sharing. The event also has a co-location with both the Commercial Integrator Summit and the Security Sales & Integration Summit for commercial A/V integrators and security companies, respectively.

“We’re thrilled to have CEDIA aboard as an association sponsor of TecHomeX, the CE Pro Summit and the TecHome Builder Summits,” says AE Ventures president, John Galante. “Adding CEDIA’s expertise and brand — and securing its collaboration on promotion — will mean faster growth for our already fast-growing events and better quality of content and contacts for participants at the event. Vin and his team are total professionals and their motivations are perfectly aligned with ours — helping the industry get smarter, better connected and grow faster!”
