July 16, 2012 CEDIA (the Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association) is pleased to announce the launch of a high level conference entitled "The Future of Home Technology", which will take place at the Inmarsat Conference Centre in London on Tuesday 23rd and Wednesday 24th October 2012.


"The home technology landscape is changing rapidly," says CEDIA Chair, Gary Lewis. "In this shifting marketplace, it's important that companies involved in the residential custom installation industry are aware of the business threats and opportunities, and are sufficiently well-informed so that they can steer their businesses successfully in the years ahead. We will be welcoming very special, high profile experts from across the technology world to share their insights with the conference audience."

"The Future of Home Technology" will feature keynote sessions from respected leaders in the technology world, alongside sessions from global CI specialists and educators. As part of the conference programme, CEDIA will be announcing the results of its industry-wide research. In addition, delegates will have the chance to see products from the event's sponsors on display in a special showcase section of the conference.
