Alpharetta, GA (September 7, 2022) – CEDIA Expo, the platform where residential technology integration, design and construction professionals connect, learn, and engage, announces a state-of-the-art matchmaking application to connect attendees with peers and exhibitors. Powered by Grip, the first artificial intelligence powered event networking solution, CEDIA Expo’s mobile app is designed to facilitate intelligent business matchmaking, product discovery and relevant content to engage attendees pre-show, onsite and post-show.
“There has been a pent-up demand to return to live, face-to-face meetings where attendees can reconnect with exhibitors and peers, see the latest products first-hand, learn from industry experts, discuss business opportunities and network,” said Jason McGraw, CTS, group vice president for CEDIA Expo and KBIS, Emerald. “We recognize that our attendees are looking forward to making new connections and networking apart from gaining knowledge and experience. CEDIA Expo is invested in providing attendees with resources and tools to build peer-to-peer relationships during this year’s show.”
CEDIA Expo’s app features the latest floor plan, exhibitor list and show schedule. Attendees can easily search for exhibitors and products by keywords and browse categories to find new solutions. Based on self-described interests, the AI-powered app provides intelligent matches for attendees to connect with peers and exhibitors. The platform supports messaging and scheduling to enable registered attendees to request meeting times and on-site appointments with exhibitors. CEDIA Expo’s app will list CEDIA’s education sessions, Manufacturer Product Training (MPT) sessions and show events through attendees’ personalized agendas linked to the show’s registration system.
Available on the Apple App Store and Google Play, the CEDIA Expo app is available for registered attendees to explore, match and meet on the go. Individuals interested in attending CEDIA Expo 2022 from September 29 – October 1, 2022, in Dallas, TX, can register online.
