CEDIA Awards Event Set for July
FISHERS, IN — CEDIA, the organization that represents the burgeoning home-technology industry, will stage its “2019 Americas CEDIA Awards Celebration” in July.
The event, to be conducted in conjunction with a new CEDIA Leadership Conference, will take place July 24-25 at the Drake Hotel in Chicago. The event will feature a full day of interactive conferences followed by the CEDIA Awards Celebration.
“This is CEDIA’s 30th anniversary, and we want to commemorate this milestone with a very special event,” said Giles Sutton, senior v.p./industry engagement.
“While the CEDIA Awards has traditionally been held in conjunction with CEDIA Expo, we recognize that it is an incredibly busy week for all our members, and over the years, we have worried that these important awards have not gotten the attention they deserve,” Sutton added.
CEDIA represents 3,700 member companies worldwide, and serves more than 30,000 industry professionals who manufacture, design and integrate goods and services for the connected home, according to organization officials. CEDIA Expo 2019, set for Sept. 10-14 in Denver, is expected to attract more than 20,000 home tech pros and 500 exhibitors, including a number with close ties to the kitchen/bath market.
