Home builders will once again have the opportunity to visit with more than 20 smart-home vendors in one central location at the International Builders Show, Jan. 9-11, 2018 in Orlando.
CEDIA is hosting the Technology Solutions pavilion with space for nearly 30 exhibitors, and many of the spots are already spoken for.
So far, the roster includes:
- BRK Brands
Lighting- and Thermostat-Centric Automation
- NuBryte (Lucis)
- Airhome (distributed audio)
- Metra Home Theater (distributed A/V)
- Touchstone Home Products (TV lifts, cabinets)
- Cyclo Vac
- Stack Construction Technologies
- Calculated Industries
- Axius (remote smart-home services)
- AT&T (connected communities)
IBS is part of Design and Construction Week, which includes education and exhibits from both IBS and KBS, the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (owned by Emerald Expositions, which recently acquired the CEDIA show).
CEDIA will host the popular CEDIA Talks series of short “big-picture” presentations, as well as new CEDIA Open Sessions.
“There will be member-to-member training and tips on value propositions, budgeting, resource and product procurement — name it,” says Dave Chic, senior director of industry relations for CEDIA. “More and more builders are making what CEDIA members can provide part of their business model.”
