The Future Best of Show Awards programme is the perfect platform to raise awareness for the new products and services that your company will be launching or showcasing at IBC2018
The Awards are supported by Future’s media and entertainment technology brands - TVBEurope, PSNEurope, and Radio World International - and receive additional editorial coverage throughout our extended portfolio in titles such as Audio Media International, AV Technology Europe and Installation
All nominations are reviewed by a panel of independent industry experts ahead of the show, with the shortlisted entries receiving a stand visit from a judge who will get hands-on with your products before returning their verdict. Factors taken into account include general quality and relevance of the product; design and build quality; business/operational benefits; innovation in concept/design/deliver; technical excellence; cost-effectiveness; game-changing ability.  


The 2018 awards programme features five brand new categories through which to enter your products, each aligned to specific areas of the broadcast workflow that will be on display at this year’s show. 
The TVBEurope awards are now broken down into three distinct categories: Production & Post; Content Management; and Delivery & Distribution. The PSNEurope category will cover all Broadcast Audio products and solutions, while the Radio World International category will encompass all product innovations targeted for Radio Broadcast Solutions
