CEDIA® is encouraging members to submit entries for the Trade Supplier categories of the 2017 CEDIA Awards, recognising the best products and services in the home technology industry.  

New for this year, distributors are being asked to work together with the CEDIA member brands they represent to support them in entering their products for the Awards. Members will have the chance to be recognised as distributors of CEDIA award-winning products and the product innovation they provide. 

The “Best New Hardware” and “Best New Software” categories are open to manufacturers whose products that have been released and distributed from 30th September 2016 to 30th September 2017. There is also a “Product Hall of Fame” category for products adjudged to have made a significant impact on CEDIA members within the last seven years. All entrants will be asked to attend the CEDIA HQ in St Neots in August to present their products to a judging panel. 

The “Best Training Course” category is open to both CEDIA manufacturers and distributors. Celebrating the best in practical and theoretical education in the industry, the shortlist for this category will be decided by the CEDIA training team. This shortlist will then be opened to home technology professional members for final voting. 

Home technology professional members in the EMEA region will also be asked to vote for their best trade supplier. Open to distributors and members, the “Best Trade Supplier” category honours the CEDIA member company that has delivered the best professional service, training and technical support to technology integrators throughout the year.

The entry deadline for the Trade Supplier awards is 12th July 2017. For more information on the categories, including full entry requirements and submission forms, please visit the Awards page here
