ALPHARETTA, GA (May 8, 2018)—Today, CEDIA Expo, the platform where disruptors, innovators and integrators in the connected built environment collaborate, announces the inaugural Tech Bites program. TechBites will be held on the 2018 CEDIA Expo Smart Stage from Sep 6-8, 2018 in San Diego. Exhibiting brands are now invited to apply.
TechBites is designed for exhibiting brands to launch their most innovative products in a “speed-dating” format. The audience will experience a lively, three-minute presentation from each brand, followed by a three-minute Q & A session fielding questions from the media, influencers and industry pros. A judging panel from different areas of the industry will choose 15 brands who are bringing the latest and most innovative products to the show to participate. The application form is now open, and selected brands will be announced in July 2018.
TechBites will showcase five (5) brands on each day of the Expo. Each day will feature a unique category:
Smart Home — September 6
Home Theater — September 7
Security — September 8
“TechBites will give brands an opportunity to share their innovations in an enthusiastic and energetic format at CEDIA Expo 2018,” says Brian Pagel, senior vice president, Emerald Expositions. “We are excited to introduce this new program, giving brands the chance to tell their story at the industry’s top tier event for connected technology within the built environment.
