“After listening to members’ feedback and closely monitoring the
trend of exhibitors’ booths, CEDIA leadership performed extensive research on
the viability of bringing Expo back to a city that not only is cost-effective
for our exhibitors but accommodates the needs of our attendees and members
across the globe,” said CEDIA chairman Ken Erdmann. “With the expansion of the
Indiana Convention Center and new hotels, Indianapolis is once again able to
provide CEDIA Expo with a platform to grow.”
The Convention Center has added more than 250,000 square feet of
exhibit/meeting space, and a new Marriott Place
hotel complex offers more than 1,300 rooms, CEDIA said.
