CEDIA has extended the deadline for its annual Awards to Monday 25th April 2016. The new deadline provides CEDIA members with an extra week to finalise and submit their entries to the most prestigious awards scheme in the home technology industry. 

“The industry has never been busier than it currently is and we recognise that it can be extremely difficult to balance client work and submitting award entries”, comments Wendy Griffiths, Executive Director of CEDIA EMEA. “We have therefore decided to extend the deadline to allow members to complete their entries to the best of their ability without undue pressure. The response to this year’s awards has been incredible and we are looking forward to seeing all entries later this month.”
