Inavate 40 Under 40 to recognise the future of AV
Inavate is looking to celebrate the future of the AV industry across EMEA with the launch of its 2019 40 Under 40 list.
Entries are open now to anyone who works in the pro AV industry in EMEA and is under 40 on September 1, 2019.
This is the inaugural year of an annual list of the most influential young people set to shape the future of pro AV. Inavate is hunting for the disruptors, leaders and innovators that represent the tremendous potential across end users, integration firms, consultancy practices, distributors and manufacturers.
Anna Mitchell, group editor of Inavate EMEA, said: “Young professionals under the age of 40 are the future of this industry. It’s important to recognise and therefore encourage talent and creativity with this age group.
“We want to hear about young people doing remarkable things with AV, deploying systems in innovative ways or contributing to product and system design with creative and forward thinking ideas. We’re also looking for talented young individuals who are generating business in the AV world by marketing or selling relevant products and systems. And we want to hear from people in research and education. If you are positively contributing to the AV industry in any way and under 40 please get involved.”
If you qualify, or know someone who does, make sure we receive entries before July 31 to be recognised as a future leader in pro AV.
