Design Connection Tours return to CEDIA Expo
CEDIA Expo has announced the return of the Design Connection Tours being lead by design and technology experts.
Taking place on 13-14 September, Jamie Briesemeister, CEO and co-founder of Integration Controls and Peter Cook, president and founder of Automation Design + Entertainment, Inc. are the chosen integrator tour guides who will each guide a group of 20 design professionals around the CEDIA Expo floor.
Designers, architects and construction professionals will be taken around the show by the two tour guides to selected exhibitor booths where they will learn about integrating the latest technology products into their projects and to establish connections with integrators during and following the four-day show.

Brian Pagel, senior vice president, Emerald Expositions commented: “The amount of success stories we heard from our exhibitor, tour guide and designer participants in 2018 made it a no brainer to bring it back for the 2019 show. Jamie and Peter both have years of experience collaborating with the design community and I have no doubt they will give our partners an easy and informative introduction to CEDIA Expo.”
“The Design Connection tours spark an important conversation for both designers and integrators and I am excited to be a part of this new collaboration opportunity for our industry,” said Briesemeister. “I am ready to share knowledge which I have gained through my business and CEDIA volunteer work, but I also know I will learn a great deal from our tour participants.”
“I have acted as a connector between designer and integrator for the entirety of my career,” explained Cook. “These connections are extremely valuable for both professions as we will need each other to stay relevant to the modern homeowner.”
