The finalists have been announced in the Technology categories for 2019 InAVation Awards. The winners will be announced at the Gashouder in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, on 5 February 2019, which is the first evening of ISE 2019 trade show.

As usual the winners will be decided by votes from the AV industry.  But in a change this year the organisers have announced they are no longer counting votes from manufacturers or OEMs.  This decision has been taken to help even the playing field for all finalists, regardless of their size. So its even more important than ever before for companies to promote their finalist status and to encourage their customers to vote for them.

The new points system is as follows;
End User (AV, IT or FM) = 10 points
Consultants (Architectural, AV, IT, Workspace/Office fit out) = 8 points
Systems Integrator, Contractor, Rental & Staging = 8 points
Distributor = 5 points

Voting will go live on Monday 19 November

Tickets for the event, held at the Gashouder in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, on 5 February 2019, can be bought from the link below;
