CEDIA is continuing to build momentum in India, by returning to the country for the third time, with a five-day training and networking event. CEDIA currently has 38 members in India, so will be supporting these companies, as well as the wider CI community, on 14th – 18th September by hosting a combination of CEDIA education and manufacturer product training at the Le Meridien Hotel in New Delhi. CEDIA will be taking two leading instructors to New Delhi to present the training sessions. New to this year is Guy Singleton, a highly respected, international expert who has been designing and installing awarding winning luxury theatres for nearly 20 years. Guy will be presenting a number of courses, including an Introduction to Lighting Fundamentals, Atmos, Auro 3D & More and Ultra HD/4K. In addition, CEDIA has partnered with two local members, Sawan Nichani from MACBEE and Harshal Parikh of Trescent Lifestyles to host a number of sessions, including an Introduction to Video Calibration and How to Work Profitably with Architects and Other Specifiers. Dedicated manufacturer product training will also be available to attendees. b42d88c94a8215f9_orgAhead of the event, CEDIA is offering non-members a special membership offer.

Following the first day of training, CEDIA will be hosting a Connect with CEDIA networking event.

Attendees will be introduced to the Association, the benefits of membership and the evening will provide a forum for ideas and debate.
