During its awards ceremony last week at CEDIA EXPO in Denver, Residential Systems magazine’s editorial director, Jeremy Glowacki, announced the winners of the 2008 Resi Awards. The awards honor the top industrial designs of products in the CEDIA channel.
“I was truly amazed this year when the entries started pouring in. Even in a down economy we had a record number of entries,” said Jeremy Glowacki, editorial director of Residential Systems magazine. “It said to me that not only is our awards program really taking off, but that there is an increasing emphasis on industrial design in the consumer electronics/custom installation channel. Manufacturers understand that first impressions do matter when it comes to their designs.”
