CEDIA Announces 2019 Technology & Business Summit Education Program
CEDIA has unveiled the education lineup for its 2019 CEDIA Technology & Business Summit series. The events include four courses that cover “relevant and in-demand topics” for industry professionals. All are free for attendees.
“A key component of CEDIA's long-term strategy includes expanding the accessibility of high-quality educational opportunities,” CEDIA Senior Vice President of Education and Certification Tom Darling said in a statement. “The robust slate of courses offered throughout the year at Technology & Business Summit events will benefit our members, partners, and the industry as a whole and provide a taste of what CEDIA Education has to offer.”
The course offerings this year include:
- Designing the Perfect Outdoor Environment
- 5 Ways to Get What You're Worth
- Job-Costing for Integrators Who Don't Like Accounting (Namely, ALL Integrators)
- The CEDIA Designer—The Ins and Outs, an exploration of the powerful home theater design software.
Above and beyond the actual educating that happens at these events, the CEDIA Technology & Business Summit sessions offer opportunities for one-on-one networking among integrators, manufacturers, reps, and other industry associates. CEDIA acquired the Technology & Business Summit series last year from Clarity AV International/Integrator Network, though Founder Mark Cichowski continues to be involved in the programming and execution around the event.
“This is one of the strongest education programs we have had; we've listened and created content on topics we know this audience wants,” Cichowski said in the statement. “The Tech Summit series continues to serve as an intimate and highly-interactive arena for building business connections and the industry's knowledge base.”
The schedule for this year’s events runs from mid-March through early November, with stops in Florida, Texas, California, New York, and even north of the border in Toronto. For a full schedule and to learn more about the 2019 CEDIA Technology & Business Summit series, check out their website.
