“There is a saying in our industry that goes, ‘if the job is done right, you shouldn’t even notice the technology at all,'” said CEDIA interim co-CEO Giles Sutton. “And while I couldn’t agree more, it is my hope that all the work these technology integrators do to make that happen never goes unnoticed. The CEDIA Awards are meant to recognize the daily grind, from hands and knees wire-pulling to ladder climbing and everything in between. Tonight’s winners, honorees, and finalists should be immensely proud of their work. I am humbled to honor them at the 2021 CEDIA Awards virtual celebration.”
