CEDIA has announced it will invite all 2016 CEDIA attendees to kick off the show and take part in congratulating this year's award winners at the CEDIA Celebration being held Thursday, September 15 at 7:00 p.m. at Gilley's.
"Last year, the CEDIA party was truly the place to be, and our attendance was well over the venue's maximum capacity; that really set a new tone for our after-hours events and one that we are carrying on in 2016," said Vin Bruno, CEDIA CEO. "This year, we are excited to host another big celebration that includes the announcement of the 2016 CEDIA Award winners. The CEDIA Celebration will provide a great venue for attendees to catch up with their industry friends and celebrate the amazing work that CEDIA members are doing."
The CEDIA Celebration will begin with a cocktail hour, followed by the presentation of this year's award winners with emcee Carley Knobloch, a digital lifestyle expert and host of the HTGV Smart Home, and then everyone will enjoy a true Lone Star experience with cocktails, BBQ, live music, and a mechanical bull.
This Thursday night CEDIA Celebration replaces the traditional Saturday night banquet and is free to all attendees. Registration for CEDIA 2016 is open at cedia.net/show. Attendees may add the CEDIA Celebration to their schedule in the registration system. Follow @CEDIA and #CEDIA16 for the latest CEDIA 2016 updates.
