Design+Connection unites technology integrators with design and construction professionals in order to create further collaborations and partnerships. Design and technology collaboration opportunities include viewing products in the Design+Connection Pavilion, participation in the Design+Connection Tour Series and the Bourbon and Brownies networking event. 

Design+Connection pavilion

In an effort to continue the collaboration between design and construction professionals and technology integrators, CEDIA Expo is proud to bring the expanded Design + Connection Pavilion (booth #1960) to Denver. Endorsed by the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA), and supported by American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), the Design + Connection Pavilion is designed to showcase select kitchen and bath brands bridging the gap between technology and design. The focal point of the pavilion, the Control4 Tiny Home, is an immersive experience for home tech pros and designers to envision how technology can be orchestrated to suit design and technology talents perfectly complementing a homeowner’s lifestyle.

Curated by top integrators, the tour walked select interior designers, builders, and architects through CEDIA Expo. The Design+Connection Tour will end at the Design+Connection Pavilion.
