Event Content to Educate Guests About Today’s Hot Markets and Opportunities of the Future

The general sessions at the event will teach guests about the home tech they should be including in their projects.

When the first TecHomeX East is held in May, guests will learn about the ways in which technology is and will be playing a growing role in how homeowners are living in their homes.

Tech options offer a way for homeowners to personalize their homes, either through full home systems or select product and room automation. The TecHomeX East content program will offer architects, builders, designers, integrators and contractors a look at the top tech plays they need to know for today and the future.

Here is the general session content guests will enjoy at TecHomeX East.
