The CEDIA Asia Pacific Expo 2012 will be held this year in Brisbane from May 9 to May 11.  

With less than 4 months to go, CEDIA Asia Pacific Expo 2012 has already attracted a strong exhibitor line-up as well as several major sponsors.  

While the Home Theatre Group has been confirmed as the Platinum Sponsor, Clipsal by Schneider Electric is the Gold Sponsor and Avation has been signed on as the Silver Sponsor of the event for the first time. Other exhibiting companies to join the list of sponsors include Amber Technology as Café Sponsor and Kramer Electrics Australia as Lanyard Sponsor.  

According to CEDIA Asia Pacific Exhibition Manager, Kelly Willett, the generous support of the sponsors for the event enables the organisers to fulfil their objectives of growing the Expo and increasing brand awareness.  

CEDIA Expo returns to Queensland after four years and is being held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre in conjunction with Queensland’s first dedicated trade show for the building and design industries, Build & Design Queensland Expo (BDQ).  

CEDIA Expo will focus on new products and systems for the custom install sector, covering the latest in whole home audio and hi-end hi-fi, home cinema, TV and video distribution, lighting, HVAC and security control, data networking and systems integration among others.  

The Expo will also feature education and training programs, which will be supplemented by a substantial amount of free training courses provided by Trade Suppliers at the event.  

Some of the initiatives being planned for CEDIA Asia Pacific Expo 2012 include the CEDIA Member Mentors Program designed for one-on-one interaction with the industry’s experienced professionals, and the Future Technologies Area consisting of free presentations.
