ALPHARETTA, GA  — (July 9, 2018) — CEDIA Expo, the leading event in connected technology, announces nominations for Innovation Alley—the section of the CEDIA Expo show floor devoted to celebrating the most innovative, new-to-market technology products and services for the built environment.

Participating brands will be offered a unique exhibit package to assist in launching their business – including membership to CEDIA. All selected brands nominated by another party (media, technology, design and/or construction professionals) will have their nominating party recognized as part of their booth presence. 

“CEDIA Expo has been instrumental in launching my company, Josh.ai, and gaining exposure to the custom installation community,” says Alex Capecelatro, CEO of Josh.ai. “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.”

“We are excited to bring the newest technology players to the forefront at CEDIA Expo,” said Brian Pagel, senior vice president, Emerald Expositions. “Over 70 percent of CEDIA Expo exhibitors launched new products and services at the 2017 event. 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.”
