CEDIA Expo has announced the expansion of its educational programming, designed to inspire and equip industry professionals with the tools to accelerate their businesses.

CEDIA Expo education session

This year’s agenda includes various formats, such as case studies led by peer integrators, as well as panels and hands-on workshops geared toward cultivating innovation and future-focused thinking. Notably, the CEDIA Smart Home Technology Conference will include full-day workshops, which traditionally used to be quarter- or half-day sessions. Some of this year’s main program tracks include:

  • Lighting and Ambiance: Explore how lighting in smart living spaces enhances well-being and style. Sessions will cover human-centric lighting, implementation challenges, blending aesthetics with smart technology, and emerging industry trends.
  • Power Management, Energy, and Sustainability: In the age of eco-conscious consumers, deep skills in power management, energy solutions, and sustainability are essential. Attendees will learn about power management, updates to the National Electrical Code, and sustainable smart home practices.
  • Business Strategies and Project Management: Equip custom installation professionals with essential skills for success in home automation, covering motivation techniques for staff, exit planning, cybersecurity, maintenance, and growth strategies.
  • Additional tracks touch on key topics from Home Cinema and Immersive Audio to Control Systems to IT, Networking, and Security.

Additionally, CEDIA will introduce a one-day, separately ticketed program — the CEDIA Executive Insights Forum — on Wednesday, September 4, 2024. The forum focuses on five pressing themes highlighted through numerous research calls with ecosystem stakeholders that are essential for driving strategic growth and innovation: advanced sales and social media strategies, effective delegation and employee trust, the housing market outlook, cutting-edge 8K technologies, and the transformative impact of AI.

The CEDIA Smart Home Technology Conference offers a wealth of benefits for attendees, especially business leaders and integrators. The expanded business and project management tracks provide business leaders with insights and strategies to enhance operational efficiency and drive growth. Integrators can advance their skill sets through technical training, hands-on workshops, and certification preparation courses, ensuring they stay ahead in a rapidly evolving industry. Additionally, the conference will uncover emerging technologies and, as a result, foster innovation and create new opportunities. All participants will gain practical knowledge and forward-thinking strategies, making the CEDIA Smart Home Technology Conference an important event for staying competitive and successful in the custom installation market.

The CEDIA All-Access Training Pass offers unlimited access to the entire CEDIA Smart Home Technology Conference program. CEDIA Expo 2024, which will be co-located with Commercial Integrator Expo 2024, will take place September 4–7, 2024, at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, CO. Individuals interested in attending CEDIA Expo can register online.
