Technology winners have been announced at the 2018 InAVation Awards ceremony and dinner held February 6 in Amsterdam.
A public vote determined each of the winners across the fourteen categories with more than 30,000 valid votes cast.
Votes were weighted according to the verified job function of the person casting them. Products that attracted end user, consultant and integrator votes accrued more points than those just voted for by representatives of manufacturers.
We can also reveal that the 2018 Distributor of the Year is Mindstec. The Dubai headquartered distributor has embarked on rapid expansion in the last few years and now has offices in Singapore, India, South Africa, Hong Kong, China and Brazil.
