The 12th iteration of the InAVation Awards, held at the Gashouder in Amsterdam during Integrated Systems Europe, once again succeeded in highlighting the very best that the professional AV industry has to offer. This year was an exceptional event, with 800 guests attending the InAVation Awards evening, which celebrated the achievements of manufacturers, distributors and installers of the world’s best AV technology and projects, globally.

Mirroring the increasing global appeal of the ISE tradeshow, the InAVation Project Awards were opened to installations carried out across the world, which saw projects delivered in Egypt and Ethiopia being listed among the finalists.  The awards represent the culmination of months of adjudication which sees manufacturers, integrators, distributors and consultants compete for the prestigious winning title in their respective categories.

The awards evening was a lavish and enjoyable affair by all accounts, with an informal drinks reception followed by a sumptuous four-course meal. The event proved to be a seminal networking opportunity for multiple stakeholders in the AV industry, and a great celebration of the industry’s achievements over the past year.
