– Capitol announced that CEDIA will be an “aggressively active” participant in
its 2011 CLI Expo, which is scheduled to be held on May 1-2 at the Oak Ridge
Conference Center in Chaska, Minn.
“Our friends at CEDIA understand the value of events like
Capitol’s CLI Expo, where we give our customers a soup-to-nuts education and
exposition on the technologies and trends affecting their business on a daily
basis,” commented Jeff Kussard, Capitol’s director of strategic development.
“We’re thrilled to have them take a featured role in what is shaping up to be
one of the most beneficial events for CI professionals on the front line.”
In addition to being a featured exhibitor in the CLI Expo’s
Technology Showcase, CEDIA’s senior director of technology, Dave Pedigo, will
present two essential classes: “The Economic Outlook and Why Your Business MUST
Change” and “Top Ten Technology Trends.”
Pedigo’s CLI Expo classes will focus on how a changing
business environment and upcoming technology trends are forcing professionals
to continue to adapt and respond to a changing marketplace, Capitol said.
Among the consumer technology brands that will exhibit at a
special Technology Showcase will be Panasonic, Monster, Russound, OmniMount,
and Lutron, among others. And more than 70 classes from over 50 vendors will be
presented over the course of the two-day event.
