EHX 2012 Expecting 41% Increase in High Quality Dealer Attendance
Electronic House Expo Expands Training to Include Residential, Commercial, Security and IT/IP Integration Solutions
FRAMINGHAM, MA – August 4, 2011 – EH Publishing today announced exciting new plans to grow the core EHX audience AND attract new dealers from converging integrator markets seeking new ways to expand and grow. Now in it’s 13th year, EHX 2012, to be held March 15-17, 2012 in Orlando, FL, will be a one-of-a-kind industry tradeshow event for integrators to get the essential training and products they need to grow their core business and diversify into new integrator markets – and for exhibitors to get new customers they won’t meet anywhere else.
Building on last year’s success where 82 percent of attendees were owners or senior managers attending EHX for high quality CEDIA and CE Pro education, dedicated manufacturer training and an interactive show floor, EHX 2012 will expand this winning formula by adding first class association and industry training in commercial, security and IP/IT networking.
To drive attendance from converging integrator markets, EHX will leverage the power of CE Pro, the #1 trade publication for residential integrators, Commercial Integrator, the top information resource for owners of commercial integration firms, and Channel Pro, the leading edge source for IT integrators serving small to medium-sized businesses.
“As integration technologies converge, smart dealers everywhere seek new ways to expand their product and service offerings,” says Deborah Smith, Event Director. “Depending on their areas of expertise, with some targeted high quality education and a few key new product lines, integrators can proactively and successfully expand their services into new integration markets to create real growth for their companies. For example:
o Residential integrators are exploring security, light commercial, IP/IT networking, home health tech, and energy management options
o Security professionals are exploring home automation, commercial, and IP-based energy management solutions
o Commercial integrators are exploring residential home entertainment and automation, security, and IT/IP products
o Commercial IT/IP networking professionals are exploring new ways to grow with residential and security products and services.”
For manufacturers, EHX 2012 offers a unique opportunity to see current customers and meet new integrators from adjacent markets they’ve never met before. It is a high ROI event with more customers to sell to, opportunities for dedicated manufacturer training, and multiple opportunities to engage with dealers throughout the show.
The net result is a one-of-a-kind Integrator Event for dealers looking for top quality integration training and new growth opportunities – and exhibitors looking to meet new dealers they’ve never met before – all at one show.
