2019 Tech Summits Wrap up

This year, we have enjoyed three fantastic Tech Summit events around the UK. For 2019, the Tech Summit focussed on key tech trends accross audio, video, lighting, and security and provided a chance for infegrators accross the country to attend free seminars from top manufacturers, as well as the opportunity to see the latest products on offer.

We kicked off the first of our Tech Summit event in London on 4th April with over 100 integrators attending this busy event at Lord's Cricket Ground. Attendees enjoyed free seminars from CIE Group, Focal, Blustream and Rako Controls. Great feedback was received and integrators thoughroughly enjoyed learning more about topics including security and control.

Next, we headed up North to Wetherby on 11 June and were joined by over 60 integrators and 21 sponsor companies showcasing their latest products. At this event, integrators joined sessions from LG, Rako Controls, AWE Europe, and Habitech covering topics such as cybersecurity, iMAX Enhanced and more.

Finally, on 2nd October, CEDIA's Jenn and Steve flew up to Edinburgh where they were joined by over 40 integrators from Scotland, as well as 20 sponsor companies. Attendees were able to enjoy sessions from Blustream, Rako and Meridian Audio on topics including HDMI 2.1 and upcoming audio trends. 

Once the manufacturer seminars had finished, attendees had the chance to join their industry peers for networking drinks.

These free-to-attend events are a great opportunity for members and non-members alike to network, catch-up with peers, and keep abreast with the latest in industry knowledge.
