CEDIA Awards 2016 Location Announced
CEDIA has announced that this year’s awards ceremony will be held at the Guildhall, London.
Taking place on Friday, 1 July, the industry will join together to celebrate the best of design, installation and integration excellence in the home technology sector.
Known as the City powerhouse since the twelfth century, the Guildhall is an esteemed historical setting. Attendees to this year’s Awards will be immersed in the magnificent medieval Grade I listed landmark for an evening of festivity and grandeur that has hosted Heads of State, royal occasions and major historical anniversaries since it was built in 1411. Once the venue that established laws and trading regulations that helped create London’s wealth, the Guildhall is a fitting place to commemorate the industry’s finest home technology projects.
“We are very happy to announce the Guildhall as the venue for the CEDIA Awards,” comments Wendy Griffiths, Executive Director of CEDIA EMEA. “Having celebrated the 10th anniversary last year at the Natural History Museum, we were under great pressure to find another memorable venue that wows CEDIA members as much as their projects amaze us. With the Guildhall’s extraordinary history, stunning vaulted ceilings and impressive setting, we know it’ll be an evening to treasure.”
The black-tie event will begin with a drinks reception, where attendees can enjoy networking with their peers, before sitting down to enjoy a three-course meal. CEDIA will reveal the winners in the grand setting of the Great Hall, watched over by monuments of national heroes, including Admiral Lord Nelson, the Duke of Wellington and most recently Sir Winston Churchill. An after party will conclude the evening.
The CEDIA Awards is free to enter and strictly open to CEDIA member companies only. The deadline for entries is Monday, 18 April 2016, so now is the time for Home Technology Professionals and Trade Suppliers to submit their entries. For more information visit www.cediaawards.org.
