Custom design and installation is the process by which home electronics are integrated into one coherent system to enhance their usability. This is the cutting edge of a rapidly growing field and is only recently becoming more widely known outside the consumer electronics industry. The Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association (CEDIA) is an international trade association that represents these specialist companies by providing educational conferences, industry professional training and certification.
The CEDIA Expo is a huge event in the Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association calendar and this year’s CEDIA Asia Pacific Expo show will take place 9-11 May 2012 at Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. The Expo is an important opportunity for the industry’s leading companies to showcase their latest products like accessories, acoustic room treatments, acoustical and theatre design, audio analysis products, audio and video components, and cables and accessories.
This year the CEDIA Asia Pacific Expo has already attracted an impressive response from exhibitors, including several major sponsors. While the Home Theatre Group has been confirmed as the Platinum Sponsor, Clipsal by Schneider Electric is the Gold Sponsor and Avation has been signed on as the Silver Sponsor of the event for the first time. Other exhibiting companies to join the list of sponsors include Amber Technology as Café Sponsor and Kramer Electrics Australia as Lanyard Sponsor.
Kelly Willett, CEDIA Asia Pacific Exhibition Manager, explained that the generous support of the sponsors enables the organisers to fulfil their objectives of growing the Expo and increasing brand awareness.
CEDIA Expo returns to Queensland after four years and is being held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. The Expo will also feature education and training programs, which will be supplemented by a substantial amount of free training courses provided by Trade Suppliers at the event.
Some of the initiatives being planned for CEDIA Asia Pacific Expo 2012 include the CEDIA Member Mentors Program designed for one-on-one interaction with the industry’s experienced professionals, and the Future Technologies Area consisting of free presentations.
