Project finalists announced in 2017 InAVation Awards

InAVation Awards

The finalists in the Project categories for the 2017 InAVation Awards have been announced. The finalists were chosen by a group of judges across the proAV industry in EMEA. Multiple nominees include integrators Polymedia, proAV, Telmaco, AV Media and Snelling.

Looking at a sample of comments from this year's judges, many participants made a note of the strength of the entries this year and that some good projects were not quite able to make it as finalists because some of the categories were so hotly contested. 

The judges also repeatedly commented that the most successful entries this year demonstrated the entire installation process, featuring products from right across the manufacturing sector. 

This year we had entries from 17 countries, representing the whole of EMEA, with especially good entries from the UK, Russia and Germany. Interestingly Corporate and Education categories were dominated by projects in the UK and Russia this year. 

In the International category, we received entries from North America, South America, Asia and Australasia.
