International trade association, Cedia has announced its plans to host a Lifestyle Technology Showcase at The Building Centre in London, on the 11th October this year. The event is primarily targeted at interior designers, architects, and property developers, and aims to inspire attendees with informative talks and demonstrations about the benefits of home technology.
For one day only, this exciting event will offer both educative and networking opportunities in a suitably central location, that is dedicated specifically to promoting innovation in the built environment. From 9:30am – 7:00pm, London’s prestigious Building Centre will be filled with crowds from across the kitchen, bathroom and interiors industries. The event will begin with Cedia’s RIBA and BIID accredited CPD training course, ‘Designing Integrated Future-Ready Homes’. This highly informative session will introduce design professionals to the basic techniques and terminology used in the technology industry and promote ideas on how to incorporate the latest technologies into residential projects without compromising on design.
The CPD course will be followed by concise 45-minute presentations from each of the event sponsors, including GIRA; Control4; Artcoustic and Lutron. Attendees will receive an in-depth introduction with these brands, their focus in the tech sector and their products – through the separate table-top exhibition spaces.
After a morning of educational talks, visitors will be invited to give their own opinions in a Cedia-hosted discussion on real life smart home projects. This is an opportunity for attendees to increase their knowledge on how to best work with a technology integrator. While the event will conclude with a networking and drinks reception.Cedia | cedia.co.uk
