Crestron ramps up training with Dubai facility

Crestron is bolstering training and support in the Middle East with a new regional office in Dubai.

The facility houses a “Customer Experience Centre”, classrooms and support centre.

Vincent Philippo, Crestron MEA regional director, said the new facility was needed to meet growing demand in the region with many sizable projects in construction or on the horizon.

Large-scale projects, such as new universities, are demanding increasing numbers of skilled integration staff and Philippo said Crestron training was in high demand with sessions filling up about three months prior to being held.

4K training is also a priority for Crestron as its sees increasing demand for higher resolutions in commercial and residential projects leading to a need for greater knowledge in distribution systems.

Crestron is also encouraging its partners to use its new facility to showcase its products to their customers.

The Business Central Towers will remain Crestron’s MEA base housing sales, marketing, and customer service and support departments.
