Also integrated into the road show are CEDIA’s most popular workshops, which will be presented by industry experts Peter Aylett, Christiaan Beukes and Craig Potter. These courses include the renowned Future Technologies: The Silicon Valley Scoop, Advanced Home Cinema Design, Residential Networking and an exam session for its respective certification.

CEDIA will also host its CPD session ‘Designing Integrated Future-Ready Homes’ in Johannesburg on Monday October 24, 17:00 – 18.30.
