CEDIA is inviting its France-based members to take advantage of its upcoming training and networking event from 30th June – 1st July, 2015 at the Hotel Mercure in Paris. CEDIA will be returning to France for the second time to meet with local members, and provide them with a new range of training courses, before hosting one of its popular Connect events in the evening. 

CEDIA is pleased to announce that this event is sponsored by B&W Group, Crestron and SIDEV. These Trade Supplier members will each present a 90 minute product training session on day one. 

These courses will be followed by a CEDIA CPD course which is aimed at architects and interior designers. Former CEDIA Board Member and owner of custom install company, The Dark Side of the Room, Marc-Etienne Huneau, will be delivering the session, which is entitled Designing Integrated Future-Ready Homes.

The first day will conclude with a Connect with CEDIA event, where new and existing members are invited to join CEDIA representatives for a networking session. The Connect event features a 'State of the Industry' discussion which focuses on key developments within the smart home industry, highlighting the introduction of mass market products and what effect this might have on the CI sector.

Day two will be split into two CEDIA training sessions, including the brand new '3D Audio and Immersive Sound for Home Cinema' training session in the morning, and CEDIA’s 'Ultra HD/4K: Everything you need to know about the next big thing' course in the afternoon.

“CEDIA is dedicated to its promise to develop the level of knowledge and skills of the residential industry. This can only be done by ensuring integrators have access to technical training, which is why we take our education sessions to our members, regardless of the country,” says Wendy Griffiths, Executive Director of CEDIA EMEA. “CEDIA’s certifications are internationally recognised within the industry and increasingly amongst homeowners, contractors and specifiers as a mark of expertise and quality in the residential installation industry. CEDIA’s education programme supports the alignment of our industry with that of other construction professionals.”
