CEDIA to Host Lifestyle Technology Showcase


CEDIA is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a Lifestyle Technology Showcase on 11th October 2017 at The Building Centre in London. Targeted at interior designers, architects, and property developers, the event will educate and inspire attendees about the benefits of home technology and provide an insight into the type of solutions that are available. 

This one-day event will take place from 9:30am – 7:00pm at London’s prestigious Building Centre, a venue dedicated to promoting innovation in the built environment. Attendees will not only gain an understanding of how to discuss home technology with their clients, but will also have the opportunity to network with colleagues and technology integrators.

The event will begin with CEDIA’s RIBA and BIID accredited CPD training course, “Designing Integrated Future-Ready Homes.”  This session will introduce design professionals to the basic techniques and terminology used in the industry and will educate attendees on how to incorporate the latest technologies into their projects, without compromising on design.

Following the CPD, the four event sponsors will host a 45-minute presentation each. The sponsors include GIRA a leading supplier of intelligent system solutions; Control4, a home automation and smart home systems specialist; Artcoustic, a manufacturer of world-class loudspeakers; and Lutron, the leader in the lighting control. Attendees will be able to familiarise themselves with these brands, as each sponsor will also be showcasing their products on a table-top exhibition space. 

Towards the end of the day, CEDIA will host a session that will discuss a real life smart home project. This is an opportunity for attendees to understand how to best work with a technology integrator, and what the outcome is when a good partnership is developed at the early stages of the project.

The event will conclude with a networking session. Integrators will be invited to attend the drinks reception to network and build relationships with the design community.
