The inaugural Pro Sound Awards are just a few days away; they are being held on Thursday 19 September at the Ministry of Sound nightclub in London.
Some sixteen different accolades will be up for grabs during the evening. There will also be a complimentary drinks reception and post-awards party.
Genelec is sponsoring the Installation category, which encompasses three award categories: Installation Team of the Year, Permanent Installation Project of the Year and Temporary Installation Project of the Year.
Lars-Olof Janflod, director of marketing and PR at Genelec, explained: “It’s a nice thing to be able to give some extra attention and appreciation to companies and persons that have done something extra and remarkable, and to do it in a different way.”
