CEDIA UK announces annual awards

March 17th, 2006 · No Comments


After years of cajoling, the UK arm of (the Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association) has finally relented and is organising an annual Awards bash for the best custom installations. CEDIA America has been running similiar awards for years now, with the winners achieving star status in the States. “I am delighted to announce the CEDIA UK Awards” says CEDIA Chairman, David Hyman. “One of CEDIA’s key tasks is to maintain and ensure high standards in custom installation. We know that CEDIA members are engaged in a whole range of superb custom installation projects across Europe, the Middle East and Africa, extending from one room home cinemas to integrated whole house automation systems. It is, then, entirely fitting that CEDIA rewards the outstanding skills and achievements of its members.”
The inaugural CEDIA Awards will break down into six categories. First up is ‘Best CEDIA Installation under £20,000’, followed by ‘Best CEDIA Installation over £20,000 and below £100,000’ and finally ‘Best CEDIA Installation over £100,000’. The organisation says that the categories are designed to recognise the quality and innovation in the design and installation skills of CEDIA members at both the lower and upper end of custom installation market. A ‘Best Multi-Dwelling Installation’ category will reward the talents of installers working with property developers and house builders. These four Awards will be judged by a panel, comprising building industry professionals and commentators from the interior design, architectural and AV worlds.
A fifth ‘CEDIA Award for Best Supplier’ will be judged by an online vote via the CEDIA website (www.cedia.co.uk) and will recognise the top manufacturer or distributor in the industry. A final category, ‘Best Stand at CEDIA Expo 2006’ will not require a formal entry, and will be judged at Expo itself by the AEO (Association of Exhibition Organisers).
The CEDIA Expo takes place at ExCeL London (Training 19-22 June; Expo 20-22 June). Closing date for the four categories where submissions are required is Wednesday 31st May 2006. The on-line vote for Best Supplier will close on Friday 9th June 2006.
