Episode 96: The Road to CEDIA Expo 2018 – We Couldn’t Design It Any Better… Let’s Do This!



Join the Crew host Katye McGregor Bennett, Corey Moss, Matt Montgomery and Kaleo Lee as they welcome their guests:

Brian Pagel – Senior Vice President at Emerald Expositions
Giles Sutton – Senior Vice President of Industry Engagement at CEDIA 
Toni Sabatino – President at NKBA Manhattan Chapter
Alex Capecelatro – CEO at Josh.ai
Frank White – Senior Consultant at Weld2 & StayTuned
Brad Hintze – Sr. Director Product Marketing at Control4
Emily Harger – Senior Marketing Manager at Séura

This is it, the final stop on the #RoadtoCEDIA as Katye hosts the third ‘Road to CEDIA Expo’ show for The AV Life! This one wraps it up with seven guests, along with Crew members Convergent AV’s Corey Moss, smart home and home theater integrator Matt Montgomery, and commercial integrator Kaleo Lee, who talks about his attending CEDIA Expo (as well as a commercial voice control integration that his company AVCO in Hawaii did). 

CEDIA Expo is the event that’s making smart homes genius. More than 20,000 home tech pros and 500+ exhibitors convene for the leading event in connected technology – receive concentrated access to new products, breakthrough innovations and targeted training in tech integration.

And with all of this in mind – listen to the guests (and members of the Crew), and what they will be doing at the show, as well as what they’re looking forward to there. It’s the first time on The AV Life for Brian, Giles, Toni, Frank, Brad and Emily – Alex is a ‘The AV Life Pro’ (listen in for more on that). One of the major focuses here – the design/lifestyle connection to the AV/tech world, and the user experience to go along with it. Oh yes, and then there’s this party at the show…

Sit back, plug in, join the guests and the Crew who bring you along for this final podcast ride to CEDIA Expo 2018 – as we live…
