Women in CT Annual CEDIA Luncheon Draws Record Crowd

Bestselling Author Sam Horn's Keynote, Volunteer of the Year Announcement, and Networking Hour Made CEDIA Expo 2019 Event a Success

LAFAYETTE, Colo. — Sept. 26, 2019 — Women in Consumer Technology (WiCT), an organization promoting the advancement of women in the consumer technology industry, today announced a new attendance record for the 11th straight year at its annual CEDIA Expo gathering. More than 350 attendees at the luncheon enjoyed the keynote address by bestselling author Sam Horn who shared insights from her new book, “Someday Is Not a Day in the Week.” Additionally, the organization honored this year’s volunteer of the year, Bonnie Perella of Legrand | AV.

“We couldn’t be more pleased with the turnout at our CEDIA Expo 2019 luncheon,” said Carol Campbell, founder of WiCT. “Thanks to the continued support of our sponsors, volunteers, and attendees, our annual gathering has become a CEDIA staple and continues to grow each year. A regular at our events, Sam delivered an insightful keynote, and we were able to recognize our ‘volunteer of the year’ for her tremendous support and ongoing contributions to our organization.”
As part of the program, Women in CT recognized Perella as Volunteer of the Year for her ongoing support to the organization. Perella currently serves as Legrand | AV’s territory sales manager and is also a WiCT’s 2018 Legacy Award honoree. She has been with Legrand | AV for more than 10 years.
