Crestron has today announced the winners of the Crestron Europe Integration Awards 2021 during a one-hour virtual ceremony.
The virtual event was hosted by Robin van Meeuwen, Executive Director EMEA Sales for Crestron Europe and tech guru Jason Bradbury, best known for presenting UK TV’s The Gadget Show.
This year saw competition across 15 categories from all channels of the market, with dealers asked to submit photos and a video to support their written application.
The entries were deliberated over by a panel of judges from the AV and Design industries, which included: Chris Pask, Director of Charlton Brown Architecture & Interiors; Jack Robinson, Director of SuperYacht Technology; Rebecca Weir, Creative Director of light.iQ ; Rob Lane, Editor of Installation; Sarah Joyce, Chief Global Officer of AVIXA; and Wayne Buttigieg, Director of Teaching & Learning Technology at London Business School.
On the entry and judging process Robin van Meeuwen comments, “The Crestron Europe Integration Awards are a celebration of the finest projects featuring Crestron from dealers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. After what has been a challenging few years for everyone, we are so proud to recognise the quality, professionalism and sheer commitment of our valued partners in both the commercial and residential sectors. Many projects have been completed with the additional challenges the pandemic presented so we are even more keen to showcase the innovation, creativity and passion that has gone into their creation. I want to extend a huge thank you to all those who have taken the time to enter their work, and a big congratulations to all the winners!”
