Crestron Reveals Plans for Masters 2018 The AV Industry Programmers Event Provides an Opportunity to Stay on Top of the Latest Crestron Technology and Industry Best Practices By RS Staff Published: January 30, 2018 ⋅ Updated: April 15, 2019 Crestron’s Masters 2018, a training event for some of the AV industry’s premier programmers, is scheduled for April 10-12, 2018, in the U.S. and May 15-17, 2018, in Europe. Crestron Masters is an exclusive, by-invitation-only conference that offers Crestron Certified Programmers the opportunity to stay on top of the latest Crestron technology and industry best practices through a wide array of training classes, while networking and sharing knowledge with peers. “It’s a constant challenge to stay current with the rapidly changing technology in our industry, and to truly master system design and programming,” said Fred Bargetzi, Crestron CTO. “These elite programmers take time out of their busy schedules to attend Masters to do just that. They’re the most dedicated and driven members of our industry.” At last year’s Masters event, nearly 800 premier Crestron programmers filled 35 training classes in more than 94 sessions, taking in networking events and entertainment. Masters 2018 promises to be even bigger and better, according to Crestron. Masters 2018 U.S.A will take place April 10-12 at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT. Masters 2018 Europe will take place May 15-17 at the Mövenpick Hotel, in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. With many courses to choose from, participants can focus on their particular areas of interest. The complete course schedule and descriptions will be available during the registration process. New this year is Master Technology Architect (MTA) courses for designers. Architects can choose from any of the MTA courses. Masters 2018 will feature expanded sessions, more presenters and Crestron engineers in attendance, and a knowledge level assigned to each course. As always at Masters, networking events will provide participants with the opportunity to relax and connect with Crestron Certified Programmers globally. Crestron Certified Programmers will receive an invitation email with a unique registration code. Registration ends Friday, March 16, 2018. Crestron has arranged for rooms at both venue locations in the U.S. and Europe at a special Crestron rate.
