A record 92 entries in 12 categories are vying for recognition in this years CEDIA ‘Best of the Best’ annual Electronic Lifestyles Awards.

The CEDIA Electronic Lifestyles Awards showcase many custom installations in some of Asia Pacific’s most stunning homes, commercial properties and marine vessels. Often tens of thousands of dollars have been spent creating these lifestyle and entertainment systems, with much forethought and expertise going into these unique projects.

Even though global spending has reduced significantly, the custom installation industry’s best installers have continued to forge ahead as consumers recognise the energy savings total home control solutions can provide.

At least three international judges - CEDIA US CEO, Utz Baldwin, CEDIA US Chairman, Ken Erdmann, and CEDIA EMEA Chairman, Robert Hallam - will be deciding the winners at this years Electronic Lifestyles Awards. These gentlemen have many years experience in the industry and have run their own custom installation businesses, meaning they can appreciate the quality of workmanship required to win a custom installation award.

This years CEDIA Electronic Lifestyles Awards will be held on the first night of the CEDIA Expo, being held in Melbourne from 23-25 June.

The heritage-listed Plaza Ballroom will provide the backdrop for the awards night, a fitting venue to highlight some of the most stunning and comprehensive installations seen in Australia, New Zealand and, for the first time, China.
