Crestron will bring its annual invitation-only Crestron Masters 2018 to Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Conn., April 10-12 and the Mövenpick Hotel in Amsterdam, Netherlands, May 15-17.
Billed by organizers as “the premier event for the AV industry’s premier programmers,” Crestron Masters “offers Crestron-certified programmers the opportunity to stay on top of the latest Crestron technology and industry best practices through a wide array of training classes, while networking and sharing knowledge with peers,” according to the company announcement.
“It’s a constant challenge to stay current with the rapidly changing technology in our industry, and to truly master system design and programming,” said Crestron CTO Fred Bargetzi in the press release.
“These elite programmers take time out of their busy schedules to attend Masters to do just that. They’re the most dedicated and driven members of our industry.”
Crestron Masters 2017 featured almost 800 premier Crestron programmers filling 35 training classes in more than 90 sessions and this year’s event is expected to exceed all of those numbers.
Among the new courses on this year’s schedule is Master Technology Architect (MTA) courses for designers.
Architects can choose from any of the MTA courses. Masters 2018 will feature expanded sessions, more presenters and Crestron engineers and a knowledge level assigned to each course.
Crestron Certified Programmers will receive an invitation email with a unique registration code. Registration ends Friday, March 16. Crestron has arranged for rooms at both locations at a special rate.
Crestron recently earned a half-dozen Top New Technology (TNT) Awards, which company officials will pick up next week during ISE 2018 in Amsterdam. The TNT Awards highlight the new and outstanding commercial technology products to be shown at the largest pro AV industry event in the world.
Entrants were judged on their technological innovation, benefits to the integrator, and benefits to the end user.
