For a second year in a row, CEDIA is a finalist in the Trade Association Forum (TAF) Awards. The association’s popular quarterly magazine, CEDIA Communicates, has been shortlisted for Magazine of the Year. 

The TAF Awards is recognised as one of the most prestigious Awards for Trade Associations within the UK and is supported by the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills. Marking its fourteenth year, the Awards reward and promote best practice amongst Trade Associations across the UK. CEDIA hopes to replicate its success at the TAF Awards 2015, after winning Publication of the Year for the CEDIA Awards Yearbook.

“We are delighted that CEDIA Communicates has been shortlisted for Magazine of the Year,” comments Wendy Griffiths, Executive Director of CEDIA EMEA. “Since its launch in 2005, Communicates has grown substantially in size, content and circulation and has become a staple read for CEDIA members as well as professionals within the wider industry. It is a great honour to be shortlisted and recognised by such an established awards scheme and is credit to the team’s continued hard work that goes into producing each issue.”

CEDIA Communicates is an international magazine that is produced by the association for the home technology industry. In its inception in 2005, CEDIA Communicates was originally a four page newsletter focusing solely on association news. Today, the magazine contains more than 50 pages of both inward and outward facing content, covering the hot topics, future forecasts and the latest industry news, as well as including features dedicated to CEDIA members.   

The winners of this year’s TAF Awards will be announced at its annual ceremony on Wednesday 6th July 2016 at 8 Northumberland Avenue in London.
