Destination Outdoors Will Be Returning to CEDIA Expo 2023


CEDIA Expo announced the return of Destination Outdoors, an outdoor oasis highlighting AV technology from Coastal Source, Draper At Home and Just Video Walls. Coastal Source, a manufacturer of outdoor audio and lighting systems, has partnered with Draper At Home, a manufacturer of residential window shades and audiovisual equipment, and Just Video Walls, a manufacturer of dvLED video walls, digital signage, video processors and digital video content, to host Destination Outdoors at CEDIA Expo 2023.

Destination Outdoors is a 24,000-square-foot area that provides a first-hand look at what is possible for outdoor spaces. Coastal Source, Draper At Home and Just Video Walls will make a splash by showcasing their product lines designed to withstand harsh, year-round outdoor environments. The highly-engaging activation will provide a first-hand look at the latest technology designed to take any outdoor setting to the next level. Destination Outdoors will feature grassy areas, patio furniture, lawn games, outdoor seating and canopy tents while displaying and demonstrating the latest outdoor innovations from Coastal Source, Draper At Home and Just Video Wall’s industry-leading product lines.

Founded in Marathon, FL, Coastal Source is a manufacturer of high-performance outdoor audio and lighting products. The company says its coastal tough outdoor products and systems are designed to withstand the harshest conditions from coast to coast and all points in between. At CEDIA Expo 2023, Coastal Source will showcase its outdoor audio and lighting solutions, exciting new products and dealer resources.

“We’re thrilled to host Destination Outdoors again. At Coastal Source, we believe that outdoor spaces deserve the same level of attention and care as indoor spaces, and Destination Outdoors is a unique way to experience our outdoor lighting and audio solutions in a natural environment,” said Jon Bowman, vice president of operations for Coastal Source. “This year, not only are we demonstrating some of our innovative new audio products, we’ve created an immersive outdoor lighting showcase, revealing the endless potential of this category.”

Draper is a manufacturer of commercial roller shades located in Spiceland, Indiana. They make thousands of custom shades daily and are bringing that same scale to the custom installation market through Draper At Home. They also make projection screens, AV lifts and AV mounts and structures. They will highlight the possibilities for transforming outdoor areas into comfortable living spaces using shading solutions.

“We’re excited to be part of this year’s Destination Outdoors. It’s a great opportunity to showcase our overall custom capacity to deliver a wide range of products that impact outdoor living comfort,” said Clint Childress, director of residential Markets for Draper. “We also have partnerships with innovative European designers to bring even more options to the table and we’ll also be sharing some of those unique solutions.”

Just Video Walls will feature a variety of MicroLED displays, including their Spec Series, a pre-configured display, and their custom series, a custom canvas designed to fit the unique needs of any outdoor entertainment space. Instead of demanding product first and spec memorization, Just Video Walls stands by its “project first / product last” approach to deliver the right system.

“We are very excited to participate in the Destination Outdoors because we believe strongly in MicroLED and further, the creative potential it offers integrators,” said Ryan Lampel, chief operating officer and founder for Just Video Walls. “However, we understand that integrators also need a way into the category without disrupting their business. We believe our suite of tools and channel-centric approach do just that.”

Destination Outdoors will be adjacent to the Colorado Convention Center at 1417 California Street. Attendees can bring their CEDIA Expo or Commercial Integrator Expo attendee badge for entry to Destination Outdoors.

CEDIA Expo 2023, which will be co-located with Commercial Integrator Expo, will take place from September 6–9, 2023, in Denver, CO. Individuals interested in attending CEDIA Expo 2023 can register online.
