Winners of 2019 EMEA and Global CEDIA Awards Revealed

CEDIA announced the winners of the 2019 EMEA and Global CEDIA Awards at the sell-out awards ceremony on Thursday September 26 at the V&A in London.

The event was a night to remember for members from France, India, South Africa, UAE, the UK, and USA, as they were recognised for their standout work and awarded the top prize in front of an audience of 400 industry professionals.

 The black-tie event kicked off in style with a drinks reception in the Museum’s famous Dome, which was sponsored by Monitor Audio. From here, attendees headed into the largest and most prestigious space in the museum, the Raphael Gallery, where they were welcomed by Tabatha O’Connor, CEDIA Global President and CEO, and enjoyed a three-course dinner.

Once CEDIA Chairman, Dave Humphries, had congratulated the two Volunteers of the Year in attendance — Geoff Meads and Michael Robinson — he introduced the host for the evening, top actress and comedian Sally Phillips. Sally warmed up the crowd with her comedic charm before announcing the 2019 EMEA CEDIA Awards winners, as well as the three Global Award winners.

The ceremony concluded with CEDIA Volunteer, Sam Woodward, being awarded the 2019 Special Recognition accolade for his technical knowledge and selfless support for the industry. With spirits high, the crowd headed back to The Dome to enjoy a drink with the after party sponsor, Sonos, and celebrated in each other’s success. Nice to see a few winners who have already graced the pages of EI and this website.

“We honoured the best in our industry at the awards ceremony in London — those who have done the kind of work that makes us all proud to be CEDIA members” commented Tabatha O’Connor. “This is a truly special year to take home a CEDIA trophy, as 2019 marks CEDIA’s 30th Anniversary. Three decades ago, a group of entrepreneurs, hobbyists, and hackers had a vision. They had a passion. They wanted to be able to take what they loved to do and share it with the rest of the world.  It was great to have such a variety of members with us at the EMEA awards ceremony — thanks to everyone for supporting CEDIA during your time as a member and encouraging your colleagues as they were awarded a 2019 CEDIA Award.”

This year’s awards ceremony was supported by headline sponsor, ABB, drinks reception sponsor, Monitor Audio, associate sponsors, Blustream, Bowers & Wilkins, Meridian Audio, and Samsung, and after party sponsor, Sonos.
