CEDIA Expo is launching an all-new programming venue on the show floor September 1-3, 2021, at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. Called the Innovation Hub, this is the newest show program where case studies revealing new and innovative solutions are showcased.
After conducting a deep dive into emerging new hot spaces, CEPro has identified several key areas of growth in the resimercial arena. These resimercial spaces are a mix of residential applications that require more robust commercial technology as well as light commercial or “main street” applications that look commercial but have been supported by “lighter” technology systems in the past and would benefit from commercial technology solutions designed and installed by residential technology pros. As a result, according to CEPro, integrators expect a 9 percent increase in revenue from commercial cross-over projects in the next five years.
To support this shift, CEDIA Expo has created a new programming space specifically designed to present technology application case studies telling the stories of the who, what, when, how and why of some of these projects.
“Hot New Spaces” to be featured will include:
- Outdoor Living
- Resimercial/Multi-family housing/Micro condo developments
- Work From Home
- Home Theatre
- Smart Water
The Innovation Hub will present more than 25 sessions over three days. Three different hosts will kick off the daily programming, including reviewing data from the CEPro research on resimercial shifts. While panel discussions on major topics in the industry will take place on the Smart Stage, the Innovation Hub offers the opportunity for a different take from brands that have had success penetrating new market segments.
