By Jason Knott
IF CEDIA EXPO 2022 has an
ounce of the same level of exuberance
as Mandy Beckner,
this year's event in Dallas
is going to have off-thecharts
energy. Beckner, vice
president of education and
training at CEDIA, ebulliently
reviewed for CE Pro a slate
of special sessions for the
fall trade show at the Kay
Bailey Hutchison Convention
Center hitting every aspect
of custom installation, from
technical to business.
Among the big themes of
this year's 60 educational
sessions will be focused on
all aspects of the lighting
business (five sessions),
wellness, and leadership using
the Entrepreneurial Operating
System (EOS). Over half
of the sessions at this year's
show are brand new, including
workshops dedicated to
Dante, and classes focused
on critical protocols such as
Matter, Z-Wave, AES67, and
AV-over-IP.
CEDIA offers an All-Access

Education sessions around lighting business, wellness, leadership
and other workshops will begin the day before the
Expo opens, Sept. 28.
Education pass for members
for $449 for members ($949
for non-members); learn more
about registration at cediaexpo.com.
Rates were set
to go up in June. Attendees
can also choose individual
sessions a la carte.
There will also be a slate of
free sessions held both in the
Innovation Hub and on the
Smart Stage on the tradeshow
floor, along with more
than 80 Manufacturer Training
Sessions. The keynote has
not yet been announced at
press time.
" We are so excited about
this year's conference. It is a
hallmark of the event. It is a
big part of what defines our
channel and our community.
I am so honored to be one
of the stewards of this year's
program, " says Beckner.
" For three days, CEDIA will
offer world-class advocacy,
connection, and education
to the home technology
community by offering formal
training and professional
advancement, advocating for
regulations that improve our
industry, and hearing from
insightful speakers, " she says.
" It's simply the premier gathering
of the brightest minds in
home technology, bar none. "
CEDIA Education starts
one day before the tradeshow,
on Wednesday,
September 28, and runs
through Friday, September
30. The last day of the show,
Saturday October 1, there are
no educational sessions but a
day dedicated strictly to the
exhibits at CEDIA Expo.
The first education day
will have 19 sessions primarily
focused on professional
development. Sessions
include preparation
content for certifications
for both the Electronic Systems
Certified Networking
Specialist (ESC-N) accreditation
and the Electronic
Systems Certified Designer
(ESC-D) certification.
Other long-form classes
from that first day will be
the popular Ask the Experts
sessions in which attendees
get to pick the brains of the
best minds in the industry in
an almost open-forum style
meeting.
On Thursday, September
29 the CEDIA Expo tradeshow
floor opens, but the
education also continues.
New for 2022 is the CEDIA
Advocacy Town Hall, which
kicks off the day at 8 a.m. This
event will highlight all the
legislative work being done
by the association to protect
the industry.
" A lot of that work can be a
'secret' to many in the industry,
but we don't intend it to
be a secret, " admits Beckner.
Throughout the next two
days, CEDIA education will be
a diverse mix of thought-provoking
seminars, lively panels,
and interactive half-day
workshops, according to
Beckner. Thursday, September
29 is also when the actual
CEDIA certification tests will
be held.
