The Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (CEDIA) will partner with this year’s 100% Design exhibition, to be held at Earls Court, London, 19 - 22 September.
100% Design is the UK’s leading design show, with last year's event attracting over 18,000 visitors. As partner of the event, CEDIA will run one of the show’s hubs, providing a series of CPD training sessions to visitors. The organisation will also have its own stand at the show intended to educate the design community about home automation.
For the first time at the show there will be a 100% Future Living section, a theme connecting each of the four main show sections; Interiors, Office, Kitchens and Bathrooms and Eco Design and Build.
On Wednesday 19 September from 13.45pm CEDIA will be hosting a number of thought-provoking sessions covering every aspect of designing a future-ready home. CEDIA will also advise on a Technology Trail for the show, highlighting relevant product stands in show guide. With home technology on the rise, many interior designers tackle the issue of integrating technology into their schemes, in a way that won't distract from the interior.
The programme will help to clarify smart home technology, in order to help interior designers further enrich the quality of projects and simplify the design and technology process.
Sessions on the Wednesday will include: 13.45-14.30, Designing Integrated Future-Ready Homes (RIBA CPD) with Phil Cotton, Finite Solutions; 14.45-15.30 Innovative Light Management Solutions (RIBA CPD) with Fayaz Kermali, Lutron; 15.45-16.30 Integrated Controls (RIBA CPD) with Tim Marsden, AMX Europe; 16.45-17.30, Understanding and Specifying Invisible Sound Solutions (RIBA CPD) with Babs Moore.
"We are really excited to be an official show partner at 100% Design," commented Wendy Griffiths, Executive Director at CEDIA. "The exhibition is a huge event and incredibly prestigious, set to attract over 40,000 visitors this year, it is a good platform for our members to share their knowledge and network with interior designers and architects. Also, the CPD training sessions will provide a great opportunity for designers to explore how they can use technology to further enhance a project."
