As the 2009 industry awards programme begins, IML Events is pleased to announce three further regional media partners, Sonovison - France, Installacion Professional - Spain & Portugal, and Pro Audio Middle East.

The addition of these media partners will help further awards promotion within the specific regions served, increasing technology voting and project entries therefore ensuring that the level of competition increases.

With our organisation’s continued commitment to help drive the pro AV industry forwards we are extremely pleased to welcome three new media partners to the programme, all of whom are editorially respected within the specific regions they serve."

The 2009 technology category finalists will be announced and the voting activated on October 22, 2008. Over 11,500 valid technology votes from over 60 countries were cast via the dedicated awards web site www.inavationawards.com.

We are looking forward to encouraging our unique readership to get involved, whether voting for a specific technology or entering one of the many innovative fixed or rental projects that have been realised by the many companies operating in this lucrative region.
