CEDIA To Engage With Designers At 100% Design


 

In line with its strategy to develop deeper engagement with the design and build community, CEDIA has announced that it will be partnering with 100% Design (19th – 22nd September in Olympia, London) to build awareness of home technology amongst this audience. As well as exhibiting on the show floor on stand D9 for the four days, CEDIA will also have a takeover of the show’s CPD Hub on the second day, providing a series of CPD training sessions to visitors.

 

100% Design is the destination for architects and designers to discover interior design trends and emerging talent during London Design Festival. With more of the construction trade visiting the show each year and the UK experiencing a building boom, 100% Build London launches this year. Featuring the latest construction materials, innovative glazing technology, exterior surfaces, and integrated automation technology, 100% Build London is the only event to bring together construction, high end architecture, and interior design.

 

On Thursday 20th September, CEDIA will be hosting a number of thought-provoking sessions in the 100% Build London CPD Hub from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Covering every aspect of designing a future-ready home, the programme will help to clarify smart home technology in order to help designers further enrich the quality of projects and simplify the design and technology process. This platform will allow CEDIA to build awareness and create demand for CEDIA members’ services with architects, builders, and designers.
