THE TIME HAS ARRIVED

Believe it or not, the time has arrived for CEDIA's 2007 Electronic Lifestyles Expo. This show will be held April 18-21 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center and Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas.

CEDIA's Electronic Lifestyles Expo is the opportunity to reach a diverse, up-and-coming industry audience. In addition to bringing together architects, builders, interior designers, and residential electronic systems contractors (RESC), this show provides access to gateway professionals who are crossing over to the electronic systems industry.

NEW FEATURES

Two-day Tradeshow: A jam-packed tradeshow floor (April 20-21) features the most up-to-date, cutting-edge products and technologies from the exhibitors.

Electronic Lifestyles Forum: Designed for architects, builders, interior designers, and electronic systems contractor owners and managers, the event offers panel discussions, networking events, and courses that provide AIA learning units, ASID continuing education units, and CEDIA CEUs.

CEDIA University: Education for electronic systems technicians and designers and newcomers to the industry, featuring CU On the Road.

Gateway: Education for industry rookies and those individuals looking to transition into an electronic systems contracting career.

ARE YOU READY FOR THE CHALLENGE?

The deadline's fast approaching. The Electronic Lifestyles Designers' and Manufacturers' Excellence Awards are highly sought after in the industry, and with higher standards being put in place each year, the competition is tough.

Be recognized as one of the best: Technical expertise, performance, overall planning — these three characteristics are essential to enter and win the 2007 Electronic Lifestyles Designers' Awards competition. Don't miss your opportunity to be recognized as among the best. Enter in any of the following categories:

  • Best Large Home Theater
  • Best Media Room
  • Best Small Home Theater
  • Best Special Project
  • Best Theme Theater
  • Best Hidden Installation
  • Best Integrated Home
  • Best Dressed System

MEASURING UP

Does your new product enhance the business of a residential electronic systems contractor (ESC)? Are you ready to put your products to the test? If so, then enter CEDIA's Manufacturers' Excellence Awards competition for a chance to win a 2007 Best New Product award.

The key criterion in this category is that these products provide enhancement in some way. An award-winning product could be a revolutionary new technology, a software program that allows an ESC's business to run more efficiently, a widget that makes a technician's life less stressful, or anything in between.

Electronic Systems Contractor of the Year: Received by the member that exemplifies CEDIA in the areas of company structure, professionalism, profitability, growth, recognition in the industry, service to the industry, service to the community, and overall success.

Electronic Systems Technician of the Year: Received by the individual technician who exemplifies a strong work ethic, has the desire to further his or her education in the electronic systems industry, and goes the extra mile to make the industry the driving force in cutting-edge technology.

Deadlines for Entry: Designers' Awards, May 4 at 5 p.m. PDT; Manufacturers' Excellence Awards, May 11 at 5 p.m. PDT; Electronic Systems Contractor of the Year, June 1 at 5 p.m. PDT; Electronic Systems Technician of the Year, June 1 at 5 p.m. PDT.
