In May 2017, CEDIA EMEA opened a new education facility at its UK headquarters in St Neots, Cambridgeshire. Consisting of an education room, a practical workshop, and a breakout area, the new facility enables CEDIA to provide technology integrators with the latest education in an environment that is set to inspire and engage. Last year, CEDIA hosted 72 courses at its HQ, welcoming nearly 600 integrators. With education continuing to increase, CEDIA decided to expand its facility to accommodate the interest that its training courses are generating. Complete with a brand-new training room and a workshop with six work stations, the area provides more space for both theoretical and practical sessions. There is also a breakout area, perfect for attendees to relax and network between sessions. “Education is an essential step for those looking to enter and progress their skills in the home technology industry,” comments Matt Nimmons, Managing Director, CEDIA EMEA. “Our education programme continues to grow in

popularity, so we felt that it was time to invest in a dedicated training facility. Since it opened at the beginning of May, it has been fully booked, with attendees enjoying the new space for various training sessions, including the four-day Technical School. We are delighted that the space has received a great reception from all who attended these sessions.” Between June and December, CEDIA will host nearly 100 days of training at its new facility, with courses including Project and Business Processes; Audio, Video, and RF Systems for Installers; Design Process and Documentation; and 3D Audio and Immersive Sound for Home Cinema. As part of the wider benefits package for CEDIA members, the new training facility is available for members to rent. For more information on renting the space, please contact James Bliss at
