Entries for the Inavation Awards 2021 are now open
The Inavation Awards, organised by Inavate Magazine, are now open for entries for the 2021 event. The event will take place at the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya in Barcelona, Spain on 2 February, which is also the first evening of ISE 2021.

This will be the first time the awards, now in their 15th year, have been held outside of Amsterdam, mirroring ISE's own move to Barcelona next year.
Award categories open for entry on 1 September, with Business Categories closing on 5 October. Project & People Categories close to entries on 31 October.
The awards will feature 4 strands; Project of the Year awards, Business awards, People awards and Technology awards, which are making a return to the event.
Anna Mitchell, group publisher, explains the decision; "We took a break from the Technology categories of the Inavation Awards in 2020, which gave us the space to really consider how we could make sure these awards could be used effectively to highlight valuable and innovative AV technologies to buyers and users.
"In 2021 Technology Awards will return to the Inavation Awards line up, but with a few differences.
"We want to provide our readership of buyers and users of AV technology greater detail of shortlisted and winning technologies; if they are unaware of the technology we are highlighting, then announcing a model number on stage means very little. Therefore, we will be revealing shortlisted and winning technologies prior to the Inavation Awards Ceremony so they can be introduced with greater detail on what caught our judges' eyes."
Alongside the return of the product categories, the orgainsers have also announced the return of the very popular voting process to decide the winners, "We're also bringing back voting so our readership of technology buyers and users will play a part in deciding winners. Because we'll be publishing a guide to shortlisted and winning technologies, this year we'll also be able to show voting breakdown for each category," added Mitchell.
