Find out who won what in this year’s AV Technology Awards, in which we celebrate the finest achievements, products, projects, companies and people in the AV and installation industry…
Typically, the AV Technology Awards would have taken the form of a gala event in the heart of London, providing a platform for the cream of the industry to come together and celebrate its very finest achievements from the past calendar year. Unfortunately, as has been the case for just about every gathering not just in our industry but the world over, the coronavirus pandemic has put paid to those plans. So, with a physical awards night out of the question, we decided to transfer this year’s festivities to the digital realm in the form of AV Technology Awards Week.
Of course, there is no substitute for being in the same room as one’s peers and chatting over a drink and some good food, but if ever the industry was in need of some positive news and a cause for celebration, it is now.
As such, for the past five days, we have been unveiling the winners from across a wide range of categories, covering products, projects, companies and individuals. We’ve also been providing a daily countdown to the No.1 spot in our inaugural Pro AV Power 20 rundown of the most influential figures in the AV and installation sector. You can find out who made the final 20 in our special free Pro AV Power 20 ebook, featuring interviews with each of those ranked.
We were also thrilled to reveal AV expert Greg Jeffreys as the winner of this year’s Outstanding Contribution award. You can read an in-depth interview with the man himself here.
Below you will find the full list of winners in this year’s AV Technology Awards. And from all at Installation, we offer a huge congratulations to all of this year’s winners and finalists…
