More entries than ever as organisers announce Event Tech Awards’ shortlist
The selected submissions highlight the strength and ingenuity of the market, turning up the tension ahead of November 7, when the winners will be announced at Troxy, East London.
Adam Parry, co-founder of the Event Technology Awards, comments: “We’re delighted with another huge response from an incredibly diverse set of companies, in terms of their geography and their genius!
“The context for these entries includes some of the highest profile events around the world, like the Adobe Summit, SXSW, the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, IMEX, and collaborations with mega brands such as Lexus, Lamborghini, Vodafone. That means, now we have a shortlist, the judges have a whole lot of thinking to do. The team we have put together will rise to that challenge though and make the difficult decisions, so sincere thanks to them for their considerable time and effort.
“We’re very pleased to be going back to Troxy for the awards ceremony too. There’s a great team at the venue and it’s a perfect place to order these tech trailblazers in November.”
New awards this year include Best Immersive Experience, focusing on systems/solutions blurring the lines between the physical and the virtual world, and the Best use of AI. Tellingly, among the traditional categories, more than 35 companies were in the mix for Best Event App, which suggests applications are vibrant, evolving solutions and scotches critics questioning their place in the contemporary event model.
