Emerald, owner of the CEDIA Expo trade show, has announced the dates for a virtual conference that will replace the in-person annual convention that was canceled due to COVID-19. The first-time CEDIA Expo Virtual event will be held September 15-17, 2020, as a completely virtual and interactive experience.
In their “Save the Date” email blast, CEDIA Expo Virtual organizers promise “high-impact, inspirational sessions” covering the industry’s “hottest topics,” as well as “face-to-face meetings with brands,” and the opportunity to “stay connected with your community.”
On September 15 and 16, CEDIA will virtually host its education conference with a wide range of business and technical topics that will allow participants to connect with experts in the industry, explore the latest technologies, and gain insight on navigating the business landscape in our new world. While the classes will be virtual, the experience is meant to be interactive, engaging, and leave one with actionable takeaways to move their career forward.
CEDIA Expo Virtual programming will run September 16 and 17 and include a series of Tech Talks, Keynotes, Design + Connection track, CEPro Fireside Chats, and TechBites.
Following the three-day live event, the CEDIA Expo Virtual platform will be available on-demand through the end of 2020.
Registration will open in early August. There will be a registration fee for CEDIA Education. The remainder of the experience will be free to attendees and press. Full agenda, sessions, and speaker lineup will be coming soon.
