All you need to know about this year’s IBC Best of Show Awards

If you’re a 2017 IBC exhibitor currently mulling over how you’re going to draw attention to the products you’re showing at this year’s show, now is the perfect time to enter our Best of Show Awards, with the build-up to the event in full swing.

Recognising new and outstanding pro-audio equipment exhibited at the event, the Awards are open to any company showing a product at the Amsterdam trade fair launched since the 2016 show.

Awards will be given by NewBay publications Audio Media International, Installation, PSNEurope, Radio World International, TVBEurope and TV Technology Global.

The IBC Best of Show Awards are evolving for 2017, with a new entry process, new guidelines and a pre-show shortlist announcement for the first time.

Entries for nominations will close one week before IBC on 4 September followed by the shortlist announcement on 8 September. Shortlisted products will then receive a visit from a judge at the show between 15-17 September, with the winners announced on the 18 September.

Nominations received before 1 September will benefit from early bird pricing of £365 + VAT per entry.

IBC Show exhibitors can submit a product for consideration by one or more of these publications, and may submit multiple products for consideration albeit with a separate entry and payment. Products need not be shipping but must be shown publicly at IBC 2017.

Shortlisted entries will also feature in the Best of Show supplement – with winners receiving both a profile and an embedded product video in the supplement – and all entries will receive a mention in the Best of Show Product Directory.
