CEDIA EXPO has been honored by Trade Show Executive magazine as one of 100 shows that set the gold standard for the exposition industry.
CEDIA EXPO was recently recognized as one of the largest shows of 2010 at Trade Show Executive’s Gold 100 Awards Gala & Summit. Trade Show Executive’s Gold 100 awards recognize the year’s largest tradeshows as measured in square footage, economic contribution, innovation and green initiatives. CEDIA EXPO increased its ranking from number 57 for the 2009 show to number 45 for 2010.
CEDIA EXPO has been held annually since 1991. CEDIA EXPO 2010 included 453 total exhibitors, an increase of 6 percent over 2009. Of those exhibitors, 90 were making their first appearance at CEDIA EXPO. Attendance held steady with modest growth from 2009-2010. Nearly 20 percent of attendees were first-time visitors to CEDIA EXPO.
“Being recognized as a top performer within the tradeshow industry puts CEDIA in great company,” said Utz Baldwin, CEDIA’s CEO. “Our elevated rank among the Gold 100 indicates that CEDIA EXPO continues to strengthen its position as the hub of business development, training, and networking in the residential electronic systems industry.”
CEDIA EXPO 2012 will be held at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, September 5–8, 2012.
