KnowledgeFest™ Draws Industry Back to Las Vegas

Becomes new home to kick off the year for the Mobile Electronics industry
North Andover, MA – March 7, 2022 – The Mobile Electronics Association (MEA) introduced a new location for a KnowledgeFest in Las Vegas marking an important milestone for retuning the industry back to Las Vegas with an exciting and record-breaking event.
Held at the South Point Hotel and Convention Center, February 18-20, the event hosted more than 1,500 attendees, 50 exhibitors with over 30 show vehicles and 80,000 sq.ft. of indoor exhibit space. The experience also delivered over 100 hours of informative vendor training and targeted educational workshops that took place over the three-day event.
“The Las Vegas event had an exciting energy that we attribute in part to how long it has been since we all were together as an industry,” said Chris Cook, president of MEA. “Looking at the numbers, we were excited going into the event, but the turn-out and attendee engagement was beyond our expectations. Many industry members shared that it felt like a homecoming for our industry.”
MEA keeps that momentum going for 2022 as KnowledgeFest goes coast-to-coast with three additional events: Indianapolis, Orlando, and Dallas. Now with four strategically located annual events, Mobile Electronics specialists—both retailers and manufacturers—have recognized the great value of KnowledgeFest for delivering education, manufacturer training, and the opportunity to network while reviewing the latest technologies.
“Las Vegas exhibitors expressed satisfaction with the event as nearly all signed up for KnowledgeFest Las Vegas for 2023.” said Chris Cook, president of MEA. “Their show of support coupled with the great reviews from the attendees solidifies Las Vegas as a new home for KnowledgeFest.”
The event closed Sunday evening with the Mobile Electronics Industry Awards hosted by the Mobile Electronics® Association and Sponsored by new MEA partner, SNAP Finance. Top awards went to Marty Adamschek - Installer of the Year, Titan Motoring - Retailer of the Year, Robert Kowatch - Sales Pro of the Year, and HKI USA - Vendor of the Year.
