Connected home technology is becoming increasingly popular in new residential schemes and major renovations.
As a result, interior designers will be challenged on their understanding of what technology is available and what’s possible to improve their design schemes for clients.
Join us for an insight into what is possible when technology and design meet in collaborative harmony.
New for ISE 2020, the CEDIA? Design and Build conference is targeted at architects, interior designers and other design & build professionals in the residential space. Sponsored by Control4, the conference will take place at the luxurious Hotel Okura in Amsterdam on Thursday 13th February 2020.
Attendees will receive a deep dive look at multiple facets of the home technology industry, and how professional design and installation can lead to sophisticated aesthetics and lifestyle benefits.
The packed programme will include a BIID accredited CPD; a panel discussion featuring integrators in conversation with BIID Registered interior designers; and, a guided tour of relevant parts of the neighbouring Integrated Systems Europe show focussing on audio-visual, lighting and shading, home control, and other automation technologies for the home.
