CEDIA 2017  CEDIA talks 


CEDIA has unveiled the full line-up of its CEDIA Talks, to be held at the CEDIA Show, San Diego Convention Centre, on September 5-9. The free 20-minute sessions, available to all attendees at the CEDIA Booth (#3635), will give share critical insights on emerging trends, new technologies, and best business practices. 

"CEDIA Talks have become a big part of our overall program at the CEDIA show and I think the reason for their continued popularity is two-fold: One, they are easy to fit into an otherwise busy schedule, all you need is 20 minutes; and two, the content covered in CEDIA Talks is second only to CEDIA training. We've got some of our best CEDIA instructors and industry visionaries providing insight," said Dave Pedigo, CEDIA VP of Emerging Technologies. 

Twelve CEDIA Talks will take place over Thursday 7th September and Friday 8th September. The line-up for these free 20-minute sessions is as follows:
