Thanks to everyone who joined us earlier this month for the CEDIA Tech Summit hosted at the MCA Recreation Centre in Mumbai. The event was a great success – our biggest and best attended Tech Summit ever in India!
We were thrilled to have more than 120 attendees, nearly double the highest attendance of any previous Tech Summit, representing a grand total of 68 companies from across India. The CEDIA training and sessions provided by our sponsors Casadigi, Control4, Crestron, Elan, MNH Bespoke, PTC, were well supported and very warmly received. It was also sponsored by Smart Home Expo, Milan Screens, AK International, and Yamaha who supported the event by showcasing their latest products and networking with attendees. Our CEDIA Accredited presenter course also proved popular and was successfully completed by eight new subject matter experts qualified to deliver CEDIA Training in India.
CEDIA Training sessions included: Project Management for High Performance Cinemas, Residential Networking, Advanced Lighting for Cinema Designers, Practical Acoustics Workshop, and Wireless Networking.
Outside of the formal training, everyone really enjoyed the great networking and productive peer group discussions over the three days. We also were delighted to welcome a representative from the Executive Team of the Institute of Indian Interior Designers (IIID) with whom CEDIA plans to co-operate closely with in the future to build awareness and business for our members. The CEDIA session sponsored by PTC which Wendy Griffiths hosted on “Working with Design Professionals” was greatly appreciated by delegates.
Thanks also to our media partners for the event for their support – What HiFi India and Integrated Systems Europe 2020.
Some comments from our attendees:
“First of all, I would like to thank each and every individual for putting in a great deal of hard work and executing such a wonderful event. A special thanks to Roopesh Shah for his inputs and meticulous planning of the event. I would like to say that the overall experience was wonderful and the purpose of educating and making people aware of the growing trends in the field of home technology was effectively executed. Kudos to the Entire team of CEDIA.“ - Monish Gulrajani, Range Incorporation
“My experience at the recent CEDIA Tech summit in Mumbai was great. Right from the moment of entering the venue. The training sessions were quite informative and, in the evening, I met with a lot of industry colleagues at the same venue. So, in my opinion, it was so nice of CEDIA to bring most of the people from the Indian AV industry under one roof and I do wish such events/trainings are conducted on a regular basis in different zones such as North (Delhi), South (Bangalore/Chennai) & East (Kolkata). In the end, I wish all the very best to CEDIA in India.” - Satish Parwani, Jay Multimedia Inc
"Just what the Home Integration market in India needed very badly - Tech Summit. Thanks to the newly appointed CEDIA representative of India Mr. Roopesh that most of the integrators of India gathered for this event in Mumbai. It was very well organised event with most of the participating brands having their booths well set up to interact with the tech community and even the slots given to these brands were very well utilised and was very informative. Thank you CEDIA for taking the initiatives and giving the home intergration community in India a face and also bringing the certification courses which will become the industry norm. All in all a good start. Wishing you great success and many more members from India” - Jaleel Sabir, Mahavir Sound Room
