…Applying solutions together.

AIBD is leading a collaborative program agenda at CEDIA’s Electronic Lifestyles® Forum on Friday, September 7th. Executive Director Steve Mickley is moderating a networking lunch and cross-industry panel discussion titled Achieving the Competitive Advantage: Collaboration, Solutions, and Profitability. “What are the biggest obstacles in collaborating with new trade professionals and how do you overcome them?” Is just one of the many questions he is prepared to pose to the panel.

At the end of the day, Steve will facilitate an interactive networking discussion, planning, and implementation session. Titled an “idea swap”, the discussion is designed to be highly interactive and allow participants to learn from each other by reflecting on what was presented throughout the day’s sessions and walk away with an implementations plan.

AIBD Internal Vice President David Pillsbury and Florida Society Board member Mike Keesee are scheduled to be in attendance.

CEDIA’s Electronic Lifestyles® Forum is a home technology education event that helps architects, builders, interior designers, building designers, remodelers, and related professionals increase their comfort level with residential electronic systems.
