Masters 2018 Recap

        The premier event for
        the industry’s premier programmers!

        Masters keeps getting bigger and better.

        This year we established new highs for attendees (900), training classes (41), and sessions (102). As always, the networking and entertainment events were a blast, with everyone establishing new friendships, renewing old ones, and sharing knowledge. 

        New this year: Master Technology Architect (MTA) Certification

        We were thrilled to debut and award this new certification at Masters 2018. The MTA certification recognizes achievement of the very highest level of expertise in design and deployment of Crestron enterprise AV technology solutions and will expand the scope of Masters going forward. Crestron is pleased to have awarded over 200 MTA certifications at our North American event alone!

        “Our leadership position in the industry is made possible by the brilliance of Crestron Master programmers. This annual event represents our commitment to providing you with the elite training you need to continue to raise the bar for our industry.”

         Randy Klein, President and CEO
