InfoComm International


February is a busy month for CEDIA. In addition to CEDIA University’s CU On the Road event, certification exams, boot camps, and workshops scheduled, CEDIA will travel to Latin America to provide core curriculum and offer manufacturer product training. Also, CEDIA will exhibit at the International Builder’s Show (IBS) in February.

As CEDIA continues to improve the quality and standards of the education offered in the United States, those same efforts are being put in place in Latin America.

CEDIA University Travels to Latin America

Techsoluciones is scheduled for Feb. 15-16, in Mexico City at the Four Seasons Hotel. CEDIA will commence 2007 education events in Latin America by participating in a seminar hosted by Mexico City distributor Tecso.

CEDIA veteran volunteer Frank White and former CEDIA President Mitchell Klein will be the keynote speakers for Techsoluciones. In addition to the keynotes, Techsoluciones will present a two-day event for integrators and electronic systems technicians to obtain manufacturer product training, as well as technical education. The conference also teaches sales techniques and offers great networking opportunities for industry professionals. The first day of Techsoluciones, Tecso offers manufacturer product training. On day two, CEDIA will administer technical courses from CEDIA University’s core curriculum.

For more information regarding CEDIA in Latin America, please contact Branden Camp at To complement the day of education, the conference will offer a tour of the Intelligent Building Services Showcase, where attendees can participate in interactive applications demonstrating IP-enabled automation, monitoring, and detection, among other things.

The International Builder Show (IBS)

IBS has been labeled “The Big Show.” The show features more than 1.5 million square feet filled with latest and most advanced building products on the market. CEDIA will be a part of the enormous event in sunny Orlando, Fla., Feb. 7-10.

IBS has more than 1,800 leading suppliers representing 300 industry categories. CEDIA will have the opportunity to interact with single-family homebuilders, multi-family builders/developers, dealers and distributors, commercial builders, remodelers, architects, engineers, realtors, subcontractors, land developers, and construction industry professionals.

The show provides the opportunity to reach out to our builders because of the high demand of high-end entertainment, whole-house automation, and home networking. CEDIA can help builders acquire new skills and stay abreast of rapidly evolving technologies. So, if warm weather and viewing the latest and greatest in building products interest you, visit CEDIA’s booth (no. W4577) at the Orange County Convention Center during IBS.
