CEDIA Announces Educational Programming for Smart Home Technology Conference at CEDIA Expo

CEDIA, established in 1989, advocates for smart home professionals, promotes advancements, and educates on technology, hosting events like Integrated Systems Europe and CEDIA Expo.

The CEDIA Expo 2024 will feature an expanded educational program, the CEDIA Smart Home Technology Conference, offering a variety of sessions, workshops, and panels aimed at equipping industry professionals with the tools to enhance their businesses. Highlights include tracks on lighting, power management, business strategies, and additional topics like home cinema, control systems, and IT. A one-day CEDIA Executive Insights Forum will also take place, focusing on strategic growth and innovation themes.

The CEDIA Expo has expanded its educational offerings to boost smart home industry professionals’ businesses. The conference offers new sessions, workshops, and tracks, focusing on innovation, future-thinking, and practical knowledge to stay competitive and successful.

CEDIA Expo, the platform where residential technology integration, designers and construction professionals connect, learn and engage, announces the expansion of its educational programming, designed to inspire and equip industry professionals with the tools to accelerate their businesses. Curated by CEDIA the Association for Smart Home Professionals™, the CEDIA Smart Home Technology Conference will feature an array of brand-new sessions aimed at broadening the perspectives of attendees, introducing new revenue streams and fostering meaningful business conversations.

This year’s agenda includes various formats, such as case studies led by peer integrators, 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.

“This year’s CEDIA Smart Home Technology Conference lineup is like no other—we’re thrilled and so thankful for the response and support we’ve received from CEDIA membership, volunteers and the overall integrator community,” said Jonathan Toomey, senior director of conference and event strategy for CEDIA. “The program is a testament to this growing, vibrant ecosystem and features a stellar lineup of industry practitioners and thought leaders. Regardless of your role, there truly is something for everyone—from hot topics to hands-on, and peer presentations to panels, this is truly the can’t-miss educational event for the smart home industry.”

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 synergy between the conference program and the exhibition floor enhances the overall value for attendees, offering an unparalleled experience,” said Jason McGraw, CTS, group vice president at Emerald. “From control systems and assistive technologies to architecture, design and build, the conference programming during the show week is a comprehensive exploration of the latest trends shaping the future of smart living spaces. Attendees can immerse themselves in educational experiences and relate that knowledge with the hundreds of exhibitors’ new products and solutions they can engage with on the CEDIA Expo show floor.”

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.
