Time is running out to enter the first ever AV Technology Europe Awards, with the 24 November closing date fast approaching.
The AV Technology Europe Awards will take place on 7 February during ISE 2018, at the Café-restaurant Dauphine – just a seven minute taxi ride from the RAI, or a 20 minute walk.
Just like the AV Technology Europe magazine, website and newsletters, the AVTE Awards has been created and designed exclusively to celebrate and recognise the work and achievements from those in end user AV community from anywhere in the UK and Europe. Not the manufacturers, not the distributors or integrators – you.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a one-man-band, or a corporate organisation with multiple locations. All categories have been designed to give everyone, regardless of the business or sector they’re in, big or small, an equal opportunity of winning.
You can even enter yourself if you feel you deserve it – we won’t tell anyone. In addition to the opportunity to have your name up in lights and a shiny engraved winners trophy to take back to the office – the event will also be a great opportunity to network with others in the AV community attending ISE.
Time is now short, so you need to act fast. The good news is that it’s really easy to enter. Simply go online, select a category and fill out the form. You will also, importantly, find full details on all the categories, list of the awards and ticket and sponsorship information.
“We know that people are very busy and don’t always have the time to spend hours or even days creating an entry – so we’ve made the process as simple as possible,” commented AV Technology Europe editor, Michael Garwood.
The Awards team has already been inundated with enquiries and entries.
“Interest in the AV Technology Europe Awards has been overwhelming,” commented Becky Hancock, head of events marketing at NewBay. “From the conversations we’ve had and the entries we’ve already received, there is very clear desire from the end-user community for an awards event created 100% in recognition of their hard work. It’s lining up to be a great night – and we want as many of you to be involved as possible, so don’t delay.”
Mark Burton, MD, NewBay added: “This new event will provide great networking opportunities at ISE while also recognising innovation and achievements in AV throughout end-user businesses. We look forward to welcoming all of our guests and short-listed entries there.”
