OK, so last night was CEDIA Awards 2020, the first and let us hope the last virtual one, although it turned out pretty well, EI particularly liked the on-line drinks reception format.  

Matt Nimmons, Managing Director of CEDIA EMEA began the ceremony by welcoming attendees to the 2020 awards and taking a trip down memory lane by looking back at past events. Following an address from Tabatha O’Connor, CEDIA President and CEO and CEDIA Board of Directors Chairman, Rob Sutherland, the ceremony began, with the event sponsors revealing the 2020 winners, which included an EMEA Global winner.

The event also featured video messages from CEDIA Award winners and interviews with CEDIA members who have supported their community during the pandemic. Also featuring was a cocktail masterclass featuring one-of-a-kind craft cocktails that were designed for the sponsors. The event concluded with outtakes from a number of CEDIA members.

“This year’s event was a special one,” commented Matt Nimmons. “While we weren’t all in the same room, I enjoyed teaming up with our sponsors to announce the winners and I know that many members gathered with their teams for socially distanced watch parties. It’s been a challenging year for all, but our members delivered some fantastic projects this year. Congratulations to the winners of the 2020 CEDIA Awards.” 

Was also nice to see lots of friends of EI, companies and projects that have already graced our pages both digital and printed, featured in the line up of finalists and winners.
