CEDIA Partners with BD Metrics to Create “My CEDIA EXPO” Relationship Technology


Online Tool Personalizes the CEDIA EXPO Tradeshow Experience

Indianapolis, Ind. – CEDIA is partnering with technology software developer BDMetrics to revolutionize the CEDIA EXPO tradeshow experience with “My CEDIA EXPO”. My CEDIA EXPO is a personalized web-based tool available for each CEDIA EXPO attendee. The software tool intelligently mines through the CEDIA EXPO database of people, products and conference sessions, and generates a custom report tailored to the attendees’ needs and interests.

My CEDIA EXPO will be released to support CEDIA EXPO, the premier annual trade event for the residential electronic systems industry. After attendees register, they will receive an e-mail with a personalized report detailing people they should meet, companies they should visit and conference sessions they should attend, all based on the preference each attendee outlines when they register. My CEDIA EXPO utilizes BDMetrics’ You-Based™ relationship technology which continually matches the interests of an attendee to the event content.

“My CEDIA EXPO will deliver focused, relevant information to all of our attendees based on their business needs and preferences,” says Debbie Antrim, Director of EXPO.

“While My CEDIA EXPO enhances the attendee experience at CEDIA EXPO we are also proud to introduce SmartBooth for exhibitors. SmartBooth is a suite of web-based prospecting tools that increases the value for our exhibitors. SmartBooth uses “push” technology to let exhibitors know which registrants are actively searching for the products they have to offer and enables them to directly reach these prospects before, during, and after the event. SmartBooth is the exhibitor’s tool for tapping into My CEDIA EXPO, the active online buying community of CEDIA EXPO registrants,” says Antrim.

BDMetrics Senior Vice President Paul Navarro remarked, “CEDIA is a consistent innovator, seeking ways to further enhance the value received from attending CEDIA EXPO. The creation of My CEDIA EXPO and SmartBooth makes CEDIA EXPO the most valuable and efficient four days of the year. My CEDIA EXPO will be available in early June.”

CEDIA EXPO will take place September 13-17, 2006 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver. For more information on CEDIA EXPO, visit
