Arlington,
Va. - The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) introduced its Electronics
Industry Business Directory, an online tool available to all CEA members.

The
directory can be found from a link on www.ce.org
and will feature a range of products and services exclusively for the consumer
electronics industry. Users have the option of performing keyword-driven
searches, or a category-specific search.

The
directory is a result of a partnership with MultiView, an Irving, Texas-based
publisher of electronic buyer and supplier guides.

"This
directory will serve as an online resource for products and services offered by
CEA members. Much like the International CES, this directory will help
facilitate business relationships between our diverse membership," said Jason
Oxman, industry affairs senior VP, CEA. "This powerful new tool joins a growing
list of benefits offered to CEA members to help expand their business and the
industry as a whole."

The
directory also includes request for information (RFI) functionality, allowing
users to contact participating suppliers. CEA members can also search for items
directly from a search window on their desktops by downloading the desktop
search application.

"Along
with the option to purchase a graphically robust company listing, direct
website hyperlink and e-mail generation capacity, the guide allows supplier
companies to add videos to their listings. This feature gives guide users
immediate access to video information and promotions that will help them easily
procure products and services specific to their needs," CEA said in a
release.
