The 2019 CEDIA Size and Scope of the Residential Technology Systems Market survey is now open for participation from home technology companies in the U.S. and Canada. Results will feed a report that will detail trends and provide an in-depth picture of the home technology industry.
"As the industry continues to evolve, the information from the survey becomes increasingly critical," said CEDIA vice president, marketing and industry relations, Cris Pyle. "We encourage all home technology integrators in the U.S. and Canada to offer their feedback to give us the most up-to-date and accurate look at the industry's current state. We need both members and non-members to participate. The results will bolster our ability to serve the needs of the industry at large."
Participants will receive a copy of the report (a $1,000 value) and be entered in a drawing to win a grand prize (valued at $3,000) of a CEDIA Expo VIP experience, which includes airfare (up to $500), a hotel stay of up to five nights, ground transportation to and from the Denver airport, front row seats to the CEDIA keynote and a CEDIA training pass. Three runners up will receive an Osmo Pocket compact smart camera ($349 value).
The survey focuses on several keys, including: estimate the current number of companies installing industry products, measure the size of the industry workforce, assess the total economic value of installation in the industry, uncover growth in each channel and analyze trends relating to the direction of the industry.
The 15-minute survey, which you can connect to at cediasizeandscope.com, is intended for professionals in the United States and Canada. Participants do not need to be CEDIA members. CEDIA is using a third-party to conduct the survey and has no access to your responses, and individual responses will be released only in combination with all survey responses. The survey will close on July 31, 2019 and preliminary results will be shared at CEDIA Expo in September.
