The Finalists

The Finalists

With more than 300 entries into Project, Avixa Standards, Distributor and Consultant/Project Manager of the Year awards this year judging sessions overran as our panels struggled to whittle down a huge range of high quality entries. As a result many categories have ten worthy finalists and we regrettably had to miss some very deserving projects off the shortlists. Judges now have an even tougher job on their hands to pick just one winner in each category that will be revealed at the 2018 InAVation Awards ceremony and dinner.
