The finalists were chosen by  a panel of judges from a pool of more than 100 high-quality entries.

Victorious winners in each category - chosen by a panel of AV consultants, integrators and InAVate media partners - will be crowned at the awards ceremony at the Amsterdam Convention Factory on Wednesday -February 5 during the ISE show.

Dan Jago, director and founder of InAVate, said: “We have again received a record number of entries into the Project categories this year.
