This year saw the launch of the ISE sponsored Smart Systems Awards designed to promote the rise of Smart Buildings and encourage the development and application of intelligent building management and control systems. Vanti and AVN Solutions jointly won the award for their work at The Lodge, a luxury residence for Tottenham Hotspur football players and coaching teams.

We can also reveal that the Inavation Awards 2020 Project Manager of the Year is Andrea Piemonti, founder of ALA Equipment Company.

For the newly launched Business Award categories, winners were decided in consultation with buyers of AV technology and represent what they want to know about the companies they buy from.

With an ever-growing range of industry awards jostling to recognise AV products, buyers are understandably becoming confused as to which are properly judged and can be trusted as a benchmark of quality. Entrants are also increasingly using standard entry information across several awards schemes, which were very often short of Inavation Awards judges standards.

The new Business Awards have encouraged entries created specifically for this awards programme, were mostly far more detailed and of a higher quality than entries we received before and (most importantly) interested and engaged our judges.

The winners for the Business Awards are:

Best Client Support
Riedel Communications

Best Marketing Campaign
Digital Projection

Best Place to Work
AV Stumpfl

Best Sales Team
Peerless-AV

Best Small Company
Active Audio/APG

The Business Growth Award
Tripleplay

The Corporate Social Responsibility Award
Epson

The R&D Award
Crestron

The Sustainability Award
Extron

Distributor of the Year
