Today, Gary Kayye talks frankly about the direction of the CEDIA Expo, particularly the companies that are exhibiting and how they’re exhibiting versus years past. If you went to CEDIA Expo this year, either as an attendee or an exhibitor, let us know if you agree or not.

Lee Distad also talks about contractor holdbacks, who they protect, and when they need to be used.
