CEDIA Core Values

While we come from different backgrounds and cultures, our values are what we have in common. They describe the expectations our members should have of us, guide how we work with each other, and hold us accountable to do our best. They govern our actions and enable our success.

Our four values, and their underlying behaviours, set the context in which we strive to fulfill our Mission to build trust and champion the Smart Home Technology industry.

The trust that our members, volunteers and our people place in CEDIA, and our high standards of ethical behaviour, are fundamental to everything we do.
