“On behalf of CEDIA Region 1, I’d like to thank all the departing Board members for their commitment and dedication to the organisation’s work and the development of the industry,” said Robert Hallam (pictured). “It’s great to welcome new Board members with fresh ideas on how we take the industry forward. It’s also especially gratifying to see additional international representation with the election of Marc-Etienne and Wim to the Board as we seek to drive up standards across the Region.”
