Explore Design Connection at CEDIAAuthor:Lindsey Shook
On September 6, 2018 CEDIA will launch their annual Expo in San Diego featuring new innovative experiences including the Design Connection Pavilion, a Design Connection Tour Series and a Bourbon and Brownies networking event. Endorsed by the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA), the Design Connection Pavilion is an is an area on the show floor designed to showcase kitchen and bath brands using connected technology in their products. The 30’ x 30’ space is a gallery concept located in Hall C and will feature technology products specifically suited to compliment design and construction integration.
“Having an area on the show floor dedicated to technology and design integration will spark needed conversations between the two professional groups,” says Suzie Williford, NKBA’s executive vice president of industry relations & CSO. “Kitchen and bath designers are hungry for products that will move the needle on technology integration in intelligently built environments.”
The Design Connection Tours, held on September 6 and 7, will mutually benefit designers and integrators alike as the tours serve the purpose of creating a professional dialogue about the intelligently built connected environment. The tours will be led and curated by two technology integrators and will lead 10-15 certified designers around select exhibitor booths. The tour will also feature a stop at the Design Connection Pavilion. Both tours will feature a complimentary lunch for all participants as well as a ticket to “Bourbon and Brownies,” an invitation-only cocktail hour and networking session.
“One of the key initiatives outlined in CEDIA’s three-year strategy is to build awareness and createdemand for CEDIA members’ services with architects, builders, and designers. CEDIA sees this as the most effective way to move the needle for the industry and for CEDIA members, the fact thatEmerald is so aligned with us on this goal will only amplify this message to our industry partners,”said Tabatha O’Connor, CEDIA president and CEO.
