We can guarantee for every company news blog, the day will come when you will need to write the ‘sorry we haven’t blogged for a while’ post.
Well, today it's our turn.
Since moving into our new office in March we've had so much going on, with the last few weeks being particularly busy - not that we’re complaining, of course! Now, following our brief ‘blog’ pause, we’re grabbing the opportunity to take some time to tell you about some of what we’ve been up to.
New site launches
We were thrilled to be contacted by the fabulous team at Sensible Heat asking us to design and build them a new website from scratch. It’s now sitting happily out there for everyone to enjoy.
Another site launch we're excited to tell you about was quite a change for us - and was an absolute pleasure to work on. Following a recommendation, Downside Nursery approached Presto with a view to building them a new website. And we're glad they did!
CEDIA Awards 2016
As many of you already know, Geoff, Presto's MD is Lead Technical Instructor for CEDIA UK and was once again Lead Technical Judge at last month's Region 1 CEDIA Awards.
The CEDIA Awards are a wonderful celebration of excellence in the custom installation industry and are the perfect opportunity for installation professionals to showcase jaw dropping examples of their work. In fact, this year saw over 200 entries from more than 18 countries.
Despite travel chaos (that's another story!) we managed to make it to London’s historic Guildhall on Friday 1st July in time to see each of the 19 winners receive their Award. We also got to enjoy listening to satirical comedian and host for the night, Marcus Brigstocke - a very funny man!
Wendy Griffiths, executive director of CEDIA EMEA, said, “On behalf of everyone at CEDIA, we would like to congratulate this year’s winners and thank all those who dedicated their time and effort to enter the Awards scheme. The awards evening was one to remember, as we came together as an industry to celebrate the best of the best. We hope that everyone enjoyed the evening as much as we did. It’s never too early to think about the CEDIA Awards, so we hope that this year’s scheme has inspired members to consider putting their projects forward for CEDIA Awards 2017.”
That’s all for now - although we've still got lots to tell you about. We've also got lots planned, so exciting times at Presto. We'll tell you all about them in our blog posts. Please remember to let us know what your favourite posts are and if you've got anything you'd like us to write about.
Thanks for reading.
