A New Era for the AV Awards

15 April 2019

The AV Awards is the benchmark for the highest possible professional standards and best practice, recognising the outstanding achievements of individuals, companies, projects and technology across the AV, events and production sectors. A rigorous judging process, judged independently by end-users of AV technology, ensures that the AV Awards continues to be the most respected award scheme in the industry.

Following a sell-out AV Awards 2018, the 21st birthday will mark the start of a new era. The AV Awards have chosen a unique space to be the future of the AV Awards - Battersea Evolution. The largest venue in London to accommodate the growth of the AV industry, but also this allows the AV Awards to use the best AV technology to create the best experience for the industry. Following research and industry feedback, there’s also new categories and criteria that covers the breadth of the ever evolving AV industry,

Rachael Hamilton, Brand Director says; “The AV Awards are now celebrating their 21st event. While our aim for the event remains the same, we realise our need to adapt, evolve and set a path for the future of the AV Awards and most importantly, for the industry. In order to futureproof the AV Awards for the next 20 years, we wanted to ensure our system is robust, transparent and reflects the entire industry. To do AV Magazine invited key industry professionals from across the channel and end-user community to a series of steering groups for a thorough review of the AV Awards venue, judging process, criteria and categories to make sure we’re judging in the right way, and are on message with the criteria and categories.”

As a user of technology, you’re the most influential part of the technology channel. The end result is what our industry works towards; you provide the inspiration and are the leaders in defining and raising standards. So, the AV Awards encourages end-user organisations to support this.

You can enter all project categories directly, or ask your integrator or consultant to do this on your behalf. Make sure you also enter your hard-working in-house team into AV Service Team of the Year. Lastly, you can enter yourself or nominate an individual for AV Professional or Rising Star categories.
