CEDIA Expo Reignites Innovation Hub Programming Feature
CEDIA Expo‘s Innovation Hub, a programming feature focused on emerging technologies and industry-trending presentations from show exhibitors, is set to return to the 2022 show. The Innovation Hub will feature topics focused on resimercial, work from home, outdoor living, lighting, security solutions, and many others.
The Innovation Hub is designed as an all-in-one platform to provide attendees with insights surrounding emerging trends. The Innovation Hub will present more than 25 sessions over three days. Industry influencers will guide the daily programming, which will begin with data from the CE Pro “Deep Dive” research on channel crossover and resimercial shifts. The sessions will offer unique insights from brands and organizations that have experienced success in new market segments, including AVPro Global, Broan–NuTone, Delos Living, Dynamat, HAB Home Intelligence, Hubitat, IMCCA, Jabra, Living in Place Institute (LIPI), VOC Instrumentation, and others.
“The Innovation Hub will feature powerful programming on new technology and emerging trends to provide insightful opportunities for integrators, designers, builders, and residential channel professionals to drive business forward,” said Jason McGraw, CTS, group vice president for CEDIA Expo and KBIS, Emerald.
CEDIA Expo has identified key growth areas for the residential technology industry to develop sessions focused on emerging technologies and trending market segments. The crossover between residential and commercial integration, coined “resimercial”, has created an increased opportunity. Emerging technology application segments—including work from home, outdoor living, lighting, and security—are offering new business expansion opportunities. To support these new growth categories, CEDIA Expo has created the Innovation Hub specifically designed to present technology application case studies to help illuminate new business and technology areas for CEDIA Expo attendees.
IMCCA (Interactive Multimedia & Collaborative Communications Alliance), a supporting association partner, will assist CEDIA Expo with developing, organizing, and moderating content session discussions on unified communications and work from home topics.
