The deal is part of a larger agreement with AE Ventures, the producers of several industry events, including the Total Tech Summit, which includes the CE Pro Summit.
Other events that CEDIA will participate in are the second annual TecHomeX, March 8-10, 2017 in Long Beach, Calif., and the TecHome Builder Summit, December 4-6 in Phoenix, Ariz.
CEDIA will provide assistance in promoting attendance and sponsorship of the events and contribute to the education/general session content programs of the events, serving as a source of information and advice to the broad cross-section of audiences including builders, architects, remodelers, contractors of all kinds and, of course, home technology integration/contracting companies.
“Partnering with AE Ventures provides CEDIA with an excellent opportunity to foster relationships with the important group of stakeholders that attend their events,” says Vin Bruno, CEDIA CEO. “We look forward to engaging with members and non-members alike and communicating the tremendous value CEDIA brings not only to member companies but also to project partners such as architects, builders, and remodelers.”
“We’re thrilled to have CEDIA on board as 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!”
