We’re ready to give budding entrepreneurs from Innovation Alley brands a big leg up on success with the new TechStarter program at CEDIA Expo!
On September 12th, leaders of the industry will travel from booth to booth in Innovation Alley, taking in “Shark Tank” style pitches from brand spokespeople. Top brands will be named to the TechStarter FIVE and will receive a host of perks and prizes to elevate their new businesses to media, attendees and their customers. The program will culminate with a TechStarter panel discussion on the Smart Stage on Friday, September 13th.
Benefits to TechStarter FIVE include:
• Acknowledgement as one of the top 5 Innovation Alley brands via press release and social coverage
• Signage in booth
• Media training breakfast
• Appearance on the TechStarter FIVE Q & A panel on the Smart Stage
• Interviews with a minimum of 3 select media outlets attending the show after the stage appearance
• Extended social media coverage – in addition to show coverage, featured two times in the year following for updates and news from the TechStarter FIVE
• Coverage in CE Pro
Cash prize for the top brand awarded at the end of the stage panel appearance!
CEDIA Expo has been instrumental in launching my company, Josh.ai, 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.
