CEDIASTRONG Roundtable: Australian Standards Update
Wednesday, 19 August 2020 - 8-9 a.m. AEST
A lot is happening with Standards in the Australian market. CEDIA is actively working on new initiatives, the Wiring Rules (AS/NZS3000) have recently been updated and KNX has been adopted as an official Technical Specification. The cabling sector is also undergoing changes, thanks to amendments to AS/CA S008 and AS/CA S009, and the adoption of IEC 62368.1.
As an integrator of home automation services, what do you need to be aware of to ensure you are compliant with all relevant Standards?
Join CEDIA’s David Meyer, KNX National Group Australia president Ian Richardson, cabling industry consultant Ian Millner and the chairman of Standards Australia’s Wiring Rules Committee, Gary Busbridge, as we investigate the fine print.
CEDIASTRONG Roundtable: Australia: Building a Brand
Tuesday, 15 September 2020 - 8-9 a.m. AEST
What is a ‘brand’ and how do you build one? Every business owner wants their company to be the first name people think of when looking to make a purchase, but how do you foster that following? Do you have to spend thousands of dollars? Can you cheat the system?
Communications expert Salvatore Di Muccio and social media guru Katie Ressa are back, this time joined by the head of strategic sales for Snap Franchising, Gavin Meredith, to talk about the ins and outs of building a brand in today’s market and how to avoid letting it all fall apart.
CEDIASTRONG Roundtable: Kiwi Market Update
Wednesday, 14 October 2020 - 9-10 a.m. NZDT
A lot of people think of New Zealand as Australia’s little brother. They believe that if something works in Sydney then it will, of course, work in Auckland. But that simply is not reality.
In this Roundtable, Paul Skelton will be joined by representatives of Retail NZ, the REINZ and the NZIA as they talk about the unique market conditions in New Zealand that both help and hinder the progress of the local systems integration industry.
CEDIASTRONG Roundtable: Australia: Social Media Marketing
Thursday, 19 November 2020 - 8-9 a.m. AEDT
Marketing your company on social media may seem easy, but in reality, it is time-consuming and riddled with challenges. We have all seen instances of somebody’s life being ruined because of something they have said, perhaps innocently enough, on social media.
So, how do you navigate this complicated new world? Do you really need to share every single thought you may have? How important is it really to engage with people on social media, and on which platform?
Join CEDIA regional development independent consultant and former magazine editor Paul Skelton, social media maven Katie Ressa and PR communications and marketing specialist Salvatore Di Muccio as they look at what you should and should not be doing online.
