The deadline for early bird ticket prices for the 2020 Inavation Awards in Amsterdam is just one months away (1 December). The event is held on the first night of ISE 2020, at a new venue – the prestigious Beurs van Berlage – located in central Amsterdam.
This year’s event, the 14th Inavation Awards, sees two significant changes from recent years. The first is a change of venue for the first time in 5 years. Previously held at the Gashouder, the new venue is the Beurs van Berlage, a building located right in the centre of Amsterdam. Packed with history, its main hall is the largest in the city centre and has been home to royal weddings, major music concerts as well as countless conferences and exhibitions.
The second major change sees the Product Awards morph into a set of Business Awards. Launched specifically for manufacturers of AV technologies, 10 new awards will recognise outstanding achievement in aspects of business that are vital to a company’s success, such as Best Sales Team and an R&D award.
The event will see a bustling room of more than 750 system integrators and AV consultants from around the world come together at one of the biggest networking events in the proAV calendar. Last year’s winners included AV companies from Thailand, Uzbekistan, Australia, Belgium and USA.
“The Inavation Awards are truly global and unlike any other industry awards, the event itself really is fun. The event is well planned and organised with some innovative entertainment before rather than just crowding at a bar, with food and drink offerings that are also superb. It’s a great event to catch up with old friends and make new contacts,” said Kevin Murphy, Kraftwerk LT.
This will be the last ever Inavation Awards to be held in Amsterdam, as both the event and the ISE exhibition will relocate to Barcelona in 2021.
