AVIXA this week announced the launch of the AV Experience Awards program, which association leaders say will “recognize the innovative integration of content, space and audiovisual technology to enrich experiences.”
The AV Experience Awards program “celebrates the ability of AV technology to expand human capabilities, or to excite, inspire, or enhance an experience across diverse markets and industries,” according to the AVIXA announcement.
The program categories “showcase how thoughtful design and execution achieve the projects’ distinct goals,” the announcement says.
“Audiovisual technology has the power to enhance how we experience the world around us – from how we shop, bank, attend sporting events, check into hotels and so much more,” said AVIXA chief marketing officer Dan Goldstein in the association announcement.
“We created the AV Experience Awards to applaud the remarkable ways professionals are designing and applying AV technology to a multitude of diverse environments,” he said.
AV Experience Awards Entries
AVIXA is soliciting entries from the pro AV market along with end-user vertical markets. Artists, designers, engineers, and creative professionals will be recognized in the following categories:
Best Dynamic Art Experience celebrates AV as art – whether it is to amaze, create a cultural centerpiece, energize people, reinvigorate a functional space, or display information in a stimulating way.
Best In-Person Experience recognizes when AV is used strategically to motivate potential attendees to get out into the real world to experience something they can’t see, do, or feel anywhere else.
Best Individualized Experience highlights applications where technology creates personalized experiences.
Best Immersive Experience recognizes illusionary or simulated environments that envelope individuals into a multi-sensory experience.
Best Flexible Space Experience highlights AV applications that create spaces that are constantly changing, adaptable, and facilitate the activities that happen within them.
Best Collaborative Experience celebrates applications of AV that bring people together via technology when they cannot be together in person.
