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.”
