It is part of Crestrons' on-going investment in the territory to provide its dealer community with the very best facilities so that they can demonstrate the power of Crestron solutions to their prospective customers.

The centre also has a purpose built ‘Meeting room of the future' which includes the latest Crestron RL2 solution - a complete group collaboration solution that combines Crestron hardware with Microsoft Lync 2013 software.
