Make the most of extra time to enter the 2021 Inavation Awards

Here's a recap of what Inavation Awards hopefuls are competing for in the first two categories to close on February 2, 2021.

It’s December and in any normal year we’d be revealing finalists ahead of the Inavation Awards. But – if anyone still needs reminding – this isn’t a normal year. With the Inavation Awards shifting back to be held in June alongside the ISE show in Barcelona, entries remain open with the first deadlines falling on February 2, 2021. Here, we’re offering a quick reminder of what you’re competing for across the first two categories to close.

Business Awards

Last year we launched a range of Business Awards to recognise outstanding achievement in aspects of a manufacturer’s business vital to company’s success. The Business Awards went down a storm and they’re back for 2021 with a difference. This time they’re open to any company that works in AV.

Companies can enter a range of categories listed below. Entries must detail initiatives launched or developed between October 1, 2019 and February 1, 2021.

Categories are open for entry now and close February 2, 2021

The categories:
AV-as-a-Service Award 
Best Client Support 
Best Marketing Campaign 
Best New Company – Company must have launched after January 1, 2017

Technology Awards

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 within a detailed and dedicated guide. 

Inavation Awards judges have always found it hard to compare vastly differing technologies across a range of manageable categories so – whilst we will still highlight an overall winner for each category - it’s important to showcase the merits of each product deemed worthy enough to reach the category shortlist.

In a departure from other categories in the Inavation Awards we will be charging an admin fee of £300 per entry to support the publication of a guide to provide greater detail of each technology shortlisted.

Despite the fee, this is still a competition. There will only be one winner crowned per category. These accolades cannot be bought.

Technologies can be entered into the categories listed below. Entries must detail technologies launched or updated between October 1, 2019 and February 1, 2021.

Categories are open for entry now and close February 2, 2021

The categories:
Audio (non-loudspeaker) 
Communication and collaboration 
Design and modelling 
Display output 
Environmental Technology 
Events Technology 
Signal distribution and management 
Streaming Technology
