Melville, N.Y. - ADI and its suppliers drew 1,300 dealers to its fourth
annual customer celebration, held at the Opera Atlanta Event Center during
CEDIA Expo last month in Atlanta.

ADI also sponsored the CEDIA Learning Labs to provide attendees
with hands-on experiences with the latest technology.

The event was sponsored by more than 20 leading manufacturers
including Key Digital, Pioneer, Proficient, Russound, Honeywell, Peerless,
Universal Remote Control, JVC, Monster and Sharp. Customers and vendors enjoyed
an evening of first-class catering and entertainment by the popular band Soul
Asylum.

The CEDIA Learning Labs sponsored by ADI included four separate
full-featured rooms equipped with the latest technology to provide electronic
systems contractors with practical real-world knowledge. Over 700 dealers
visited the Learning Labs for an opportunity to see and test the newest
products. The Learning Labs hosted 23 separate training sessions linked to 12 CEDIA University
courses being offer at the EXPO.

"The Learning Labs were the highlight of my CEDIA EXPO
experience. I'm a hands-on, visual learner and these labs gave me the
opportunity to touch, feel and see products that I design on a daily basis,"
said Ben Savage, custom installations specialist at A to Z Security and Sound,
Inc. in Mary Esther, Fla. "It was great to have an environment that was
conducive to one-on-one product training without the stereotypes of a
traditional training environment. I highly recommend this type of learning be
introduced at future events."
