Project Story

In just ten years the CEDIA Awards have grown into the most recognisable accolade in the custom install industry. 2014 marked a significant year of growth for the awards and to celebrate the occasion CEDIA asked Presto to rebuild and rethink their awards website. The structure was built on a powerful content management system (CMS) which was reskinned for the 2015 rebrand project.

Having built the CEDIA Education website back in 2010 Presto were already well versed in the CEDIA brand. CEDIA's global marketing team had created HTML templates for their customer facing website and Presto updated these to use the latest HTML5 and CSS3 coding for future compatibility.

The outgoing site featured a large archive of previous winners. These were all re-purposed and built into the new version. Presto designed a customised Content Management System for the new website allowing CEDIA staff to update the site and upload images. A Blog system was also integrated meaning news, press and other stories can are added and published easily.

The original site launched ready for the 2014 awards alongside an online entry system which Presto also helped commission. The new, rebranded site launched in October 2015 and has already gained addional traffic and improved dwell times from visitors on mobile devices.
