CEDIA Global Awards Program Boasts Increased Participation
INDIANAPOLIS (June 7, 2017) – The newly aligned CEDIA Home Technology Professional Awards program has seen an uptick in member participation around the globe. 90 home technology professional companies spanning 18 counties have submitted 158 projects for consideration. Furthermore, over 30 companies are first time entrants in the awards program.
“Our dedicated team of CEDIA staff and volunteers have worked diligently to align the awards program and to make it easier for members to enter their projects. The result has been wonderfully successful,” said Dennis Erskine, CEDIA Chairman. “I’m particularly proud that we have so many countries represented in the awards program this year, we truly are a global organization and seeing projects from around the world shows just what kind of footprint CEDIA members have.”
Jenny Scott, CEDIA Member Engagement Manager adds, “It is encouraging to see so many companies enter projects for the first time – we know that our members do incredible work and it’s exciting to see the stunning and creative solutions from both new and long-time members.”
