I like the intimacy of it. I'm not just lost in 150,000 people on a five-mile trek. I can really bounce around to different people, have one-on-one conversations — it's up close and personal. – Lewis Franke (LED Systems, USA) on CEDIA Expo

Cloud computing can have latency…when you’re local, you don’t have access to a lot of devices and processing…and fog is that in-between. — Alex Capecelatro (josh.ai, USA) on “Cloud, Mist, and Fog Computing,” a CEDIA Tech Council Podcast (No. 1811, Episode 50)

It's a great congregation for like-minded people and to bounce ideas off of one another to say, "Hey, this is what I've been successful with, and this is what I haven't been successful with." Networking is crucial for me whenever I come here. JJ Canon (Digital Delight) on CEDIA Expo
