Entries are encouraged from all over Europe, Middle East and Africa and will be judged by an independent panel of industry figures from a variety of sectors reflecting the categories.
To ensure a fair procedure, the judging panel of industry specialists has been carefully selected by Crestron to bring a diverse range of opinion and expertise to the table, so that every entry can be assessed accurately and from a mix of viewpoints. Of the six judges on this year’s panel, three will judge the residential entries and three will review the commercial entries.
