The finalists in the Project categories for the 2018 InAVation Awards have been announced after tough deliberations over more than 300 entries.

While the list represents some of the most high profile and prestigious projects completed around the world in the last year; it also picks up a few smaller, ingenious and unique applications of cutting edge technology conceived by the sharpest brains in consulting and integration. 

The announcement is a week late as judging sessions overran with panels struggling to whittle down the huge range of high quality entries. As a result many categories have a record ten worthy finalists and we regrettably had to miss some very deserving projects off the shortlists. 

All winners will be revealed at the sold out 2018 InAVation Awards ceremony and dinner on February 6, 2018 in Amsterdam during the ISE show.
