Show Notes

We examine the big issue of lighting in the company of Homeplay’s Managing Director, James Ratcliffe, alongside Nic Black, Principal of The Pyramid Group. We ask how integrators can bring lighting design and lighting control into their business. What's involved and how will embracing lighting change your business offering for the better? As the CEDIA Awards open for entry, we also talk to James and Nic about taking part in Award schemes. What does it take to win an Award and is it worth all the effort? The episode is recorded in one of the industry’s newest showroom spaces, the Homeplay Experience Centre in Sunbury-on-Thames, Surrey. James tells us about the Experience Centre, explaining how it came about, how the project evolved and, now it's open, how it's working. We're very excited to launch a new, in fact, our first competition.
