The French Connection

The French Connection

Published: Friday, May 06, 2016

CEDIA will be hosting a training and networking event on 1st - 2nd June for French-based home technology professionals. Taking place at the Splendid Hotel in Nice (all in the name), the two-day event will feature a range of manufacturer product training courses and CEDIA education sessions, hosted by two local CEDIA members.

Day one will follow the format of a CEDIA Tech Forum and throughout the day attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a number of 60-minute Manufacturer Product Training sessions. These courses will be hosted by the six event sponsors, including B&W Group, Crestron, Genesis Technologies, Meridian, Prestige Distribution and Vivateq. With access to the first day free for home technology professionals, the day is positioned as a must-attend event in the industry calendar. The day will conclude with a Connect with CEDIA event, where new and existing members are invited to join CEDIA representatives for a networking session.

Day two will be split into two CEDIA training sessions, running before and after lunch. Marc-Etienne, owner of custom install company, The Dark Side of the Room will be presenting the morning course, entitled ‘How to work Effectively with Architects’. This course will advise attendees on how to be part of the design team effectively, and will discuss how to understand key stakeholders and decision makers. Attendees will also learn how to deal with issues of ownership of the project and how to take advantage of regular trade.

The afternoon session, which is called ‘Pieces of Design for Immersive 3D Sound’ will be hosted by Dominque Rigolet, owner of Audire. The course will focus on Dolby, Auro and SDR output formats for immersive 3D sound, which is the most important development for home theatre since stereo audio. Using practical examples, this course covers how to draw a room and position the speakers to ensure the best results for your customers, regardless of audio format.

With only 15 spaces available for both sessions, CEDIA advises home technology professionals to book tickets now. The first session is priced at £50 for members and £70 for non-members, while the second course is £70 for members and £90 for non-members.

“CEDIA is thrilled to be hosting another training and networking in France”, comments Wendy Griffiths, Executive Director of CEDIA EMEA. “This event will not only be a great opportunity for attendees to develop skills and knowledge about the industry, but also build lasting relationships with fellow CEDIA members and sponsors.”
