CEDIA has announced the complete line-up of ‘CEDIA Talks’ to take place at its upcoming expo in San Diego this September.

A series of 20-minute presentations will exploring emerging trends, new technologies and best business practices from speakers from across the residential industry will take place at the CEDIA booth (3635) during the show from 7 September to Friday 8 September, 2017.

“CEDIA Talks have become a big part of our overall program at the CEDIA show and I think the reason for their continued popularity is two-fold: One, they are easy to fit into an otherwise busy schedule, all you need is 20 minutes; and two, the content covered in CEDIA Talks is second only to CEDIA training,” commented Dave Pedigo, VP of emerging technologies at the organisation.

"We've got some of our best CEDIA instructors and industry visionaries providing insight."
