Judging Criteria:

Each award has its own entry criteria which can be found here. However, as an overall guide, the judging panel will be looking at four key areas for each award:
  • Innovation in the deployment/commissioning of solutions
  • Excellence in design and functionality 
  • Creation of business/cost efficiencies 
  • Improving business performance (enhancing legacy solutions/driving new AV capabilities) 

Who Can Enter?

Nominations are open to the professional AV community, but are focused upon the activities of end user organisations. Whether an end user looking to highlight the great work of your internal teams and people, or a systems integrator/consultant/distributor/manufacturer who has been impressed with the teams, people, and operational briefs you have been working with in the end user space, the AV Technology Europe Awards is an opportunity for the whole industry to join together in celebrating the fantastic innovation and creativity on display in our community.
