CEDIA Offers Extra Time

Published: Thursday, May 11, 2017

CEDIA has announced that it has extended the deadline for all entries into the installation categories of the 2017 CEDIA Awards to Friday 19th May 2017. All applicants that have started a submission by Friday 12th, 11:59pm, will be given an extra week to complete their entries to the most prestigious awards scheme in the home technology industry.


“As the industry continues to go from strength to strength, the association is aware that CEDIA members are busier than ever,” comments Matt Nimmons, Managing Director of CEDIA EMEA. “This year’s awards scheme has undergone a few changes, including a new entry system and revised award categories. We therefore believe it is in the members’ best interests to extend the entry deadline to 19th May to help ease the time pressure of managing all client work and award submissions. We hope that this week of grace will provide members with enough time to finalise and complete any outstanding entries to the best of their ability. We look forward to receiving all completed entries in the coming days.”

This year’s Awards ceremony will take place on Friday 29th September 2017 at the magical Warner Bros. Studio Tour London - The Making of Harry Potter. All attendees to the black tie ceremony will receive exclusive access around the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London, a three course dinner on Platform 9 ¾, and a drinks reception in the Great Hall.
