The CEDIA Awards Yearbook, produced to promote and celebrate the quality and skills of CEDIA members participating in the organisation’s annual awards scheme, is now itself a winner, taking the title of “Publication of the Year” at the 2015 Trade Association Forum (TAF) Awards.
The prestigious accolade was presented to the CEDIA team, led by Wendy Griffiths, CEDIA EMEA’s Executive Director, at a glittering ceremony in front of more than 250 guests at the UnderGlobe at Shakespeare’s Globe, London on Thursday 9th July. Supported by the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills, the TAF Best Practice Awards recognises, rewards and promotes best practice amongst trade associations in the UK.
The CEDIA Awards is the flagship Awards scheme for the home technology integration sector, typically featuring more than 150 entrants from countries across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, India and Pakistan. The CEDIA Awards Yearbook is a beautiful, high value 'coffee-table' style publication which showcases the work of all entrants into the scheme, covering excellence in integrated media room, home cinema, whole house, superyacht and other home technology industry categories. This glossy, high value, perfect bound book celebrates the professionalism and talents of CEDIA members and also provides an important window into the industry for architects, interior designers, house builders and homeowners.
“It is a great honour to be awarded “Publication of the Year” in the TAF Awards,” comments Wendy Griffiths, Executive Director of CEDIA EMEA. “We are thrilled that the work our team has invested in the publication, as well as the content of all CEDIA Award finalists that feature in the Yearbook, have been recognised by such an established and prestigious Trade Awards scheme. The home technology industry is going from strength to strength, producing unique, problem solving solutions for 21st century living. The CEDIA Awards and the CEDIA Awards Yearbook provide a great opportunity to showcase the innovation and skills of our industry and the lifestyle benefits that a professional home technology installation can bring.”
