Show Opens Exhibitor Applications for Spots on VIP Media Tour

(Alpharetta, Ga.) May 31, 2019 – The Hard Hat Media Tour, an all-new program at CEDIA Expo 2019, will give media a sneak-peek at the latest and most innovative products hitting the residential home technology market. Taking place Thursday, September 12, the tour will guide a select group of media to exhibitor booths where brands will have 10-15 minutes to pitch their debuting products. The Hard Hat Media Tour will happen during CEDIA Expo 2019 which runs September 12-14 at the Denver Convention Center.

Seven participating brands will be chosen by three media vetters who will blindly select from self-nominated exhibitor applications. If chosen, the non-sponsored tour stops will be guaranteed 10 minutes with 20 members of the media within their booth space. The two sponsored tour stops will anchor the tour by utilizing additional time for networking and relationship building within their 15 minute time slots.

For brands to be considered for inclusion on the tour, click here for the application form and for a complete list of application requirements. Deadline for exhibitor applications is June 28, 2019.

Brands will still be invited to hold press meetings off the show floor during CEDIA Expo 2019 apart from participation in the Hard Hat Media Tour.

“CEDIA Expo is excited to roll out another opportunity for our exhibitors to gain exposure for the innovation they are bringing into the marketplace,” said Brian Pagel, senior vice president, Emerald Expositions. “We’re exposing our valued media contacts to the newest products of the year, and it’s happening first at CEDIA Expo.”

Participating media and sponsors will be announced leading up to CEDIA Expo 2019 in September.
