FISHERS, Ind. (OCTOBER 8, 2020) — Following a memorable evening showcasing the best work and products in home technology integration, CEDIA has announced the winners of the 2020 CEDIA Awards in the Asia Pacific region. Ten unique projects from integrators located in Australia, New Zealand, and China have been honoured as the best of the best on a global stage in 2020. In all, winners were recognised in five categories with various levels and four subcategories. Winners of "Life Lived Best at Home” and “Technology Meets Design" awards were also honoured.
"Congratulations to the winners of this year's CEDIA Awards. The competition was intense, and all winners and finalists are to be commended for the supreme quality of their work," says CEDIA Vice President of Engagement and Global Development Wendy Griffiths. "The global pandemic created additional hurdles this year for entrants, but the finished products demonstrate the resilience each integrator possesses and in no way impacted on the exceptional level of work being done. The virtual CEDIA Awards event -- a first for the industry -- provided an engaging, unforgettable platform befitting to honour the winners, finalists, and industry luminaries alike and has allowed us to expand the audience and host all three regional events on the same day. A huge thank you to Crestron Australia; B&W Loudspeakers and Convoy International for sponsoring and supporting this event."
