NEW YORK / LONDON  (October 26, 2017) — NewBay, publisher of Installation, ISE Daily, Infocomm Daily, TVBE, TV Technology, Systems Contractor News, Pro Sound News Europe, and AV Technology Europe, is excited to announce the launch of the AV Technology Europe Awards, 2018.

Taking place February 7 in Amsterdam – the second official day of ISE 2018 – the AV Technology Awards provide a brand new and exclusive platform for the AV end-user community to celebrate the increasingly pivotal role that AV plays for businesses around the world ­– from corporate to hospitality, education to retail, and everything in between.

Buoyed by the hugely successful launch of AV Technology Europe in September (in print, digital and online), the AV Technology Europe Awards will focus on both individuals and companies - rewarding innovation on behalf of companies and teams through our technology and project awards, and individuals through a series of awards focused on AV professionals at different stages in their careers.

“We are delighted to be launching the first dedicated AV awards ceremony for end users”, says Mark Burton, Managing Director, NewBay. “This new event will provide great networking opportunities at ISE whilst 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.

“There are some truly extraordinary and innovative examples of AV technology in action today and we feel it’s important to recognise and celebrate those companies and the people who made it happen,” added AV Technology Europe Editor, Michael Garwood.

“We’ve worked closely with the industry to create a strong and relevant list of Award categories to ensure every business in every sector, big or small, has an opportunity to enter and to win.”
