CEDIA® has announced an exciting new partnership with the Sunday Times British Homes Awards, the prestigious national scheme which celebrates exceptional design in all things home.
The Sunday Times British Homes Awards is the only honours that recognises every aspect of housebuilding — from one-off houses to major developments, interiors to landscaping, individual extensions to placemaking on a grand scale. The awards ceremony itself, held this year on the 19th September at the London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square, attracts some of the biggest names in housebuilding, architecture, and interior design to a sell-out event. Contenders and winners are given extensive coverage in the Sunday Times, Britain’s biggest selling quality Sunday newspaper and across its popular digital platforms.
CEDIA will be featured in all marketing collateral for the Sunday Times British Homes Awards. CEDIA members are encouraged to enter the Best Smart Homes category, where they will receive a 15% discount on entry. This category will be judged by a panel of designers, architects, and homebuilders as well as Giles Sutton, CEDIA’s Senior Vice President of Industry Engagement. The scheme is now open for entries with a closing date of 2nd May 2019.
“We are excited to support The Sunday Times British Homes Awards,” says Matt Nimmons, CEDIA’s Managing Director, EMEA. “The scheme is renowned for attracting a varied range of high-quality entries. Our strategic partnership will help us build awareness and visibility for CEDIA and give our members the opportunity to demonstrate their skills, professionalism, and excellence in front of this important design and build community.”
