CEDIA (the Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association) has announced the new CEDIA Tech Forum, a format which combines education, a keynote presentation and the annual AGM. The two-day event will be held on Wednesday 26th and Thursday 27th November at the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel in London.
CEDIA is pleased to welcome AWE, Crestron, Future Automation, Habitech, HDanywhere, Invision, Leaf and Savant Systems Europe as the sponsors of the event. These trade suppliers will be showcasing their latest products over the course of the two days, while a selection will also hold product training on the first day. These sessions will support the two intensive new CEDIA training courses.
“The new CEDIA Tech Forum will provide a focused training environment for installers to get to grips with the latest thinking and practical support on two industry hot topics: 4K and HDMI, and the design and deployment of wireless technologies in the home,” says Simon Buddle, CEDIA EMEA’s Education Director. “Trade suppliers will provide hands-on training for brand specific products and technologies. It’s a great opportunity for installers to access targeted and useful education from a variety of sources in one place at one time.”
CEDIA has also revealed that Maria Ingold, CEO of global tech consultancy, Mireality, will deliver a keynote presentation ahead of the CEDIA AGM at the close of day one. Maria’s presentation, entitled, “Home Technology (HoT): A Connected, Smart, Sustainable Future for Living – At Home and Away” will explore how communications, audio, video, smart home, efficient energy and wearable tech are all combining to provide advancements in home technology, and also to life, with the ultimate goal of creating homes that people can take with them wherever their heart goes.
