CEDIA ANNOUNCES STRATEGY & AWARDS
CEDIA HQ has announced “outputs from its new strategic plan”, and beyond the marketing speak the goal is for significant advances and leadership in three key areas: education; increasing professionalism though standards, guidelines, and best practices; and deeper engagement and partnership with the design and build community.
Meanwhile CEDIA has also announced that projects can be entered into the 2018 CEDIA Awards program up to 14 May 2018, with entrants first competing within their region — Americas, EMEA, or Asia Pacific — and winners from there going into the global Awards running. Categories include Integrated Home; Media Room; Home Cinema; Innovative Solution or System; Showroom; Auto, Marine, or Aircra; Multiple Dwelling Unit Design, Best Documentation, Best Dressed Rack, and Best Lighting System, while that “deeper engagement” with the design and build community will see experts from those sectors judging winners for the ‘Life Lived Best at Home’ Award and the ‘Technology Meets Design’ Award.
