Long time Strata-gee readers know that I am a big fan of market data and industry statistics, and can unhesitatingly recommend your participation in this survey. Seriously, you can help yourself by helping CEDIA accumulate a large sample of data that will help us all get a clearer picture of the growth and health of the custom integration market. You are, in effect, helping CEDIA help you with aggregated data that will greatly assist in your planning initiatives.

The Size and Scope survey by CEDIA is one of the few high-quality tools we have to help us determine the size and direction of custom integration business – as well as its overall health and well-being. CEDIA did a great service to the channel when they began this survey several years ago, but its success is dependent on the large-scale participation of integrators – thoughtfully and honestly contributing their information.

“We encourage all integration firms to participate. The data that we collect in this survey is incredibly important,” said Dave Pedigo, VP of Emerging Technologies. “Home tech professionals who take the time to fill out this survey are helping us better understand the ever-shifting landscape of this industry so we can all better serve its needs.”

The Size and Scope Survey is designed to collect the following data points:

  • Estimate the number of companies currently installing industry products
  • Determine the size of the industry workforce
  • Evaluate the total economic value of installation in the industry
  • Identify each channel’s level of significance in the industry
  • Report on general market conditions and forecasting
  • Provide trend analyses to indicate the industry’s direction


Here’s the thing – it only takes about ten minutes or so of your time to take the ENTIRE survey…it’s super quick and easy. And while you should consider it your industry/civic duty to help out yourself and your fellow integrators by taking this survey…in fact, CEDIA offers you extra motivations to do so.

Those integrators who participate in this important survey receive a free copy of the final report – that’s a $1,000 value! Not only that, but participant’s names will be entered into a drawing¹ for a stunning Samsung 65″ QLED TV. I don’t know about you, but I’d like to have one of those in my family room!



But wait! There’s more! Three more winners will be drawn from the pool of participants to win a CEDIA Training Pass and $350 towards their airfare to CEDIA 2018 in San Diego.You DO NOT need to be a CEDIA member to participate, but you MUST BE a home technology professional in either the United States or Canada.
