Control4 to Sponsor First-Ever Design Connection Tours

Jul 30, 2018

Alpharetta, GA — (July 30, 2018) —Today, CEDIA Expo, the leading event in connected technology, announces Control4 as the sponsor for the debut Design Connection tour series. The Design Connection tours will take place during CEDIA Expo, September 6 to 8, at the San Diego Convention Center. Control4 Senior Vice President of Marketing Susan Cashen expresses the company’s enthusiasm for connecting integrated technology experts with design and construction professionals at CEDIA Expo.

“Architects, builders, and developers have the same goal as technology integrators: to finish each project with a satisfied client,” says Cashen. “Technology should support a home’s stylish design and  atmosphere, rather than diminish it. We believe there is essential connection between the aesthetic of a home and the technology it encompasses; the two should blend seamlessly and effortlessly to elevate the overall design and create a more inviting and comfortable lifestyle for its homeowners. For us, being a part of CEDIA’s Design Connection Tours helps us support our goals to further align design and technology in this industry.”

Dedicated to the industries of home entertainment, smart lighting, climate control, safety & security, networking, and voice control, Control4 advocates for integrators to connect with designers in order to create beautifully connected and user-friendly living environments. 

CEDIA Expo’s Design Connection tours will be led by David VanWert, principal of VanWert Technology Design and Joe Whitaker, president of Thoughtful Home Design and member of the CEDIA Board of Directors. The two industry leaders will guide 10 to 15 certified designers to selected exhibitor booths for product overviews and Q&A’s with brand representatives.
