INDIANAPOLIS (January 6, 2016) - CEDIA is focusing on efforts to connect with the design and build community; as part of this effort, CEDIA will be presenting education and participating in a roundtable discussion at Design & Construction Week. Design & Construction Week ® (DCW) features the co-location of the NAHB International Builders' Show ® (IBS) and NKBA's Kitchen & Bath Industry Show ® (KBIS).
"The builder and designer audience is crucial to CEDIA members and the solutions they deliver. Successful collaboration between our members will ensure that clients really will have a home experience customized to their needs, and in the end, that is what we're all after," said Vin Bruno, CEDIA CEO.
The course CEDIA will be presenting, "Emerging Residential Technology Trends," has been a consistent favorite among the design and build audience. The course highlights the impact of new technologies and how to use them to increase profits, save production time, and gain referrals.
CEDIA representatives will also participate in the Design & Construction Week Roundtable to discuss issues and trends in the U.S. housing market and exchange ideas with other industry thought leaders.
The 2016 synchronization of IBS and KBIS for Design & Construction Week will also include two partner events - International Window Coverings Expo (IWCE) and The International Surface Event (TISE), made up of SURFACES, StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas and TileExpo. The third annual DCW will take place January 19-22 in Las Vegas and will bring together 110,000+ design and construction professionals.
CEDIA members interested in presenting continuing education to groups of their own local design and build partners may do so through the CEDIA Outreach Instructor program. Additional information about this program can be found at cedia.net/outreach.
