innovation success stories


Alex Capecelatro, CEO of

CEDIA Expo has been instrumental in launching my company,, and gaining exposure to the custom installation community. Our very first exhibit was inside the Expo's Innovation Alley, a corridor highlighting promising new ventures. Just two years later we took home CEDIA's Best New Product Award for Josh Micro, a hardware product we announced at the Expo. This show is a major highlight for us and we always look forward to unveiling our latest innovation.

Brent Wiseman, HDMI Staffing

We had just opened HDMI Staffing when we displayed in Innovation Alley at the 2017 CEDIA Expo, we literally didn’t know what to expect. 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.


Trung Pham, CEO and Founder, AXIS

CEDIA Expo and the 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.

CEDIA Expo has been a great way for our company to get exposure to Integrators and Manufacturers in the industry.  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 with CEDIA.
