Crestron Celebrates Official Grand Opening of LA Design Showroom

Private Showroom Tours & Professional Development Seminars Draw Hundreds of Guests

Rockleigh, NJ, September 17, 2012 - Crestron welcomed hundreds of guests to the official grand opening of its LA Design Showroom last week. The all-day, action-packed open house presented interior designers, architects, luxury home builders, integrators, and homeowners with an inside look at Crestron Integrated by Design™ home technology in a real-life home setting. Located in the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood, CA, the Crestron Design Showroom makes it easy to see and actually experience the possibilities of home automation, discover how easy it is to use, and how to blend it into any interior design. The Crestron Design Showroom offers the perfect setting for guests to learn more about the wonderful world of home automation and see it for themselves. Crestron is committed to continuing education to those audiences, and the showroom is one example of that commitment.


"The official Grand Opening of our new Design Showroom marks an open invitation for guests to stop by and try our integrated home technology solutions for themselves," said Michelle Baker, Crestron LA Design Showroom Manager. "The showroom is the ideal location for visitors to explore options, get inspired, meet with Crestron executives, collaborate with system designers and demonstrate the latest technology in real-world applications."

The open house event featured guided tours of the 3,500 square foot facility, which demonstrated new Crestron innovations, including Crestron Studio - Home Designer™, Crestron Shading Solutions, tablet-style touch screens, and much more. Interior Designers had the opportunity to check out award-winning homes featuring Crestron technology during the VIP presentation. They also learned more about the Crestron Interior Design Partner program - how to become a partner and the benefits. Open to everyone, afternoon professional development seminars addressed relevant topics such as "Controlling your Home with Apple® Devices" and "Growing Your Business with Crestron." A ribbon cutting ceremony was held in the afternoon, followed by a cocktail reception for guests.

"We're extremely excited to bring a Crestron Design Showroom to the Los Angeles market," said Dave Sell, Crestron Executive Director. "The showroom is a powerful resource for design and build professionals that will expand their knowledge of the latest digital technology and help grow their businesses. And we are here every step of the way to support them."
