Simplicity is key in today’s working life. It’s just human nature to wish for anything that will make your professional life easier. Luckily CEDIA has created just that—CEDIA Expo.

CEDIA Expo makes your life easier with one-stop shopping for everything you need to excel in the residential electronic systems industry. In fact, you’d have to read dozens of magazines, visit hundreds of manufacturers, and spend several weeks away from your business to get everything CEDIA Expo offers in just one intense week.

You get the most exhibitors (including many you can't find anywhere else), the most product introductions, a comprehensive education, opportunities for industry networking, and the most prestigious certification.

In 2006, Expo brought more than 28,000 attendees and more than 600 exhibitors together. The stage has been set as CEDIA prepares to host its 18th annual Expo at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver Sept. 5-9. This year’s Expo is expected to be better than ever. Registration officially opened June 1, 2007, and early-bird discounts end July 11 at midnight PST.

Not only will you spend a jam-packed week attending hundreds of CEDIA University course offerings, you will also visit hundreds of exhibitors, and take in priceless knowledge from the exceptional keynote speakers. Here’s a sneak peek into some of the special events CEDIA has arranged for you.


Make CEDIA Expo rock by participating in the CEDIA Rock or Ride Giveaway.

Visit all exhibitors’ booths listed on the game card received onsite. Collect all 10 stamps for a chance to win an autographed guitar by Ted Nugent and his Supergroup band and another guitar autographed by Credence Clearwater Revival, or a custom CEDIA Chopper 2600cc Carefree Custom edition. The final drawing will take place Sunday, Sept. 9 at 1:30 p.m.

Terms and conditions apply. All participants must comply with these terms and conditions to be eligible. Visit for the complete version of the terms and conditions.


The CEDIA Expo Golf Outing kicks off the week on Tuesday, Sept. 4 with a great opportunity to network with peers within the residential electronic systems industry. The outing, which takes place at one of Denver’s most scenic golf courses, offers a relaxing environment that integrates opportunities to conduct business. Voted among the “Best Places to Play in Colorado” by Golf Digest magazine, Arrowhead Golf Club features dramatic views and breathtaking elevation changes.

As always, many great prizes will be available along with food and drinks. The format for the outing is a scramble in which each golfer plays from the best drive. Come and see just how far you can hit the ball in the mile-high conditions. Registration opened on June 1, 2007, and space is limited to the first 144 registrants.


Don’t get stressed out at CEDIA Expo. Take advantage of the CEDIA Expo Massage Area located on the street level in the main concourse near the Rock or Ride Giveaway Area. Masseuses will be on hand to relax your muscles and rejuvenate your mind. Massages are completely free to all attendees. So loosen up this year at CEDIA Expo.

These are just three of the special events CEDIA has arranged. For more detailed information about these events, or for additional events, visit and download the 2007 registration brochure. Also, for additional information contact CEDIA at (800) 669-5329.
