CEDIA Expo: Changes at CEDIA
This year's CEDIA Expo in Atlanta drew more than 20,700 attendees, which represented "modest growth" from last year's total. About 20 percent of the attendees were at CEDIA Expo for the first time, the organization reported. Expo also saw a 6% increase in exhibitors from 2009, to 453.
"The steady booth traffic, the increase in exhibiting companies, and the number of new attendees are all early indicators that our industry is poised for a resurgence," said CEDIA CEO Utz Baldwin.
Baldwin, seeing his industry at a crossroads, announced several changes at the show, including a new council structure and the launch of a comprehensive, industry-wide research project.
