ROCKLEIGH, NJ, October 28, 2009 — Tuesday, October 20th was a spectacular autumn day in Rockleigh, NJ, the perfect setting for the festive and inspiring celebration of the new, state-of-the-art Crestron Experience Center. More than 700 guests, including Crestron dealers, consultants, architects, lighting designers, media, and government officials took part in the three hour event. A buffet lunch was served, followed by a press conference, ribbon cutting, and group tours of the 8,000 square foot suite’s atrium-style grand salon, multimedia presentation room, digital boardroom, Theo Kalomirakis Home Theater and expansive design studio. From all over the world, nearly 1,000 virtual visitors took part, watching live streaming video of the event from their computers.
“This marks an open invitation to our dealers to use this beautiful and functional space as an awesome sales tool,” said Vincent Bruno, Crestron Director of Marketing. “There is no better way to understand how effective and accessible our technology is, and how touchpanels and other interfaces can make the user experience simple, intuitive and enjoyable.”
Ron Callis, Jr., President of Firefly Design Group flew from Florida to attend the grand opening event, “The new Experience Center is an amazing testament to Crestron’s commitment to this industry. I can’t imagine a consultant or integrator that would bring a potential client to this facility and not close the deal.”
