CEDIA Expo Innovation Alley—Launch Pad for New Brands

June 26th, 2018

ALPHARETTA, GA — (June 26, 2018) — CEDIA Expo, the leading event in connected technology, is pleased to celebrate our past and current exhibitors in the CEDIA Expo Innovation Alley—the 2,000-square-foot section of the CEDIA Expo show floor devoted to celebrating new-to-market technology products and services for the built environment. In the past two years, more than 40 brands have launched new products and services as part of Innovation Alley, and many attribute their success to being part of this novel platform.

“CEDIA Expo and Innovation Alley were absolutely pivotal in enabling us to test the dealer market for our product while at the same time provide unbelievable exposure and build valuable relationships in the industry,” said Trung Pham, founder, CEO, Axis Labs.

“CEDIA Expo has been a great way for our company to get exposure to integrators and manufacturers in the industry,” said J.B. Fowler, chief revenue officer, Domotz, Inc. “Innovation Alley provided a forum to showcase our technology and educate the channel on how Domotz could improve their business models. I’m looking forward to continued success at CEDIA Expo.” 

“We had just opened HDMI Staffing when we displayed in Innovation Alley at the 2017 CEDIA Expo, and we literally didn’t know what to expect,” said Brent Wiseman, chief operations officer, HDMI Staffing. “In the end, it far surpassed our expectations by providing immediate business at the show and immediately after. It was a major help in putting us on the map within the integrator community.”

Axis Labs, Domontz Inc. and HDMI Staffing are all returning exhibitors for CEDIA Expo 2018.

We have no doubt that with all of the innovation in the market today, we will have a robust roster of new brands showcasing in our Innovation Alley.”
