To Administer its continuously expanding international membership, CEDIA now has administration offices in the UK, Australia and China.

CEDIA Awards

CEDIA EMEA Members are able to enter the prestigious CEDIA Awards for free!

Established in 2006, the prestigious CEDIA Awards celebrate excellence in home technology design, installation and integration across the EMEA region.  Setting the standard for industry professionals across CEDIA EMEA, these stunning projects are the crème de la crème of smart home installations.

Top two tips to make you CEDIA Award entry stand out:

  1. As a small business, differentiating your company from the competition is great way to retain current, engage past and bring in new clientele. Along with competing aggressively with other businesses, creating a unique buzz around what you do is a powerful tactic to keep your pipeline full with business.
  2. Ensure your images are taking in high definition! There’s nothing worse than having a fantastic project, but the images don’t show off the high caliber. So before you submit your entry, ensure all images are of high quality and are the best ones to show off your potentially award winning project!

In need of a fresh way to create buzz? Entering the CEDIA EMEA Awards is one way to drum up free publicity and marketing around your company to the industry and to consumers.
