Winners of the Inavation Awards Business categories have been announced at the Amsterdam event where Prase Engineering was also named as Distributor of the Year.

The awards categories were decided in consultation with buyers of AV technology and represent what they want to know about the companies they buy from. 

Business Awards represent a new way to recognise manufacturers of AV technology and depart from the Inavation Awards Technology categories. 

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 are:
