Here’s to the Next 30

2019 marks not only a monumental year, but a monumental 30 years. In 1989, a group of tradespeople, entrepreneurs, and visionaries charted the future for residential technology, creating an association and an industry. It certainly looks different today than it did back then, but some things remain unchanged like the passion and pioneering spirit of CEDIA members. From a small group that hosted the first expo in Amelia Island, Florida, to a global organization more than 3,900 member companies strong, CEDIA looks to the future with a deep appreciation for the past.
