2021 Inavation Awards: Project Finalists revealed

A stellar line up of projects from around the world once again compete for Inavation Awards with finalists revealed today.

In a year where the coronavirus pandemic caused project delays and cancellations, ravaged sectors such as transportation and live event and turned others on their head we weren’t sure what to expect from the 2021 Inavation Awards Project line up.

We shouldn’t have worried. The global integration community has tackled these challenges head on and with buckets of creativity and ingenuity and today we’re able to publish a strong list of finalists the industry should be proud of.

Regrettably, in some of our oversubscribed categories we’ve had to discount projects that were worthy of the shortlist but were beaten to the maximum of ten places available by the finest of margins. So if you entered and didn’t get through, please don’t be discouraged from entering future projects as the strongest categories vary from year to year.

The calibre of this year’s field continues to cement the Inavation Awards as the AV industry awards programme chosen by integrators, consultants and their clients to pit their skills against the best the industry has to offer. 

This year 79 projects were shortlisted across 11 categories, showcasing projects from 29 countries.
