40 under 40: Meet the Class of 2022

40 under 40: Meet the Class of 2022
The Class of 2022 has been announced for this year’s 40 under 40, celebrating the best and brightest of the AV industry’s up-and-coming talent.

This year’s 40 under 40 class focuses on AV professionals who are shaping, leading and disrupting the AV industry across the EMEA region, making waves with personal achievements, contributions to the industry and thought leadership.

The Class of 2022 saw the strongest field of applicants yet, demonstrating leaders that not only made a solid contribution to the industry, but also a solid representation of industry leaders that are committed to the wellbeing and success of their teams and colleagues.

The 40 under 40 initiative offers an opportunity to recognise the talents of younger professionals in the industry, at a time of skills-shortages within the industry and a growing drive to expand and recruit new AV professionals.

A special 40 under 40 booklet will be mailed alongside the December 2022 edition of Inavate EMEA, including detailed write ups of each member of the Class of 2022. To receive your copy, you can register here.
