CEA To Host TechHome Mediterraneo In Italy

11/01/2010 02:53:37 PM Eastern

Arlington, Va. - ­ The Consumer Electronics Association
(CEA) will host the inaugural TechHome Mediterraneo Summit, to be held in Stresa,
Italy, a resort town located on Lake Maggiore, one hour north of Milan.

The TechHome Mediterraneo Summit, a three-day conference
focused on the custom installation market in Southern Europe, will run Oct.
3-5, 2011.

"The TechHome Mediterraneo Summit will enable companies
looking to expand into the European custom electronics industry to experience
the marketplace first-hand," said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CEA. "Our
goal for this new venture is to spur new business opportunities for U.S. and
European companies alike in this dynamic and growing custom electronics
market."

Roberto Salari of Salari S.r.l., a custom electronics
integrator based in suburban Milan, Italy and member of the CEA TechHome
Mediterraneo advisory board, said, "Italian custom integrators are looking
forward to connecting with CEA members and association leaders next October."

Salari added, "CEA and its TechHome division have helped
build the US and international custom electronics market for more than a
decade. We're excited about the online media CEA has already launched for our
market and know the production of the TechHome Mediterraneo Summit will prove
to be a watershed moment in the development of the Italian custom electronics
market."

The TechHome Mediterraneo Summit will be co-located with
CEA's 2011 CEO Summit and Board Retreat, an invite-only event for consumer
technology leaders focused on relationship-building, roundtable discussions and
market research. Details on the 2011 CEO Summit and Board Retreat will be
available later this fall.
