The winners of the 2020 EMEA CEDIA Awards have been announced, following its first ever virtual awards ceremony.

Following a pre-show ‘drinks reception’, Matt Nimmons, Managing Director of CEDIA EMEA, Tabatha O’Connor, CEDIA President and CEO and CEDIA Board of Directors Chairman, Rob Sutherland, hosted proceedings.

The event also featured video messages from CEDIA Award winners and industry veterans, interviews with CEDIA members who have supported their community during the pandemic, and a cocktail masterclass featuring one-of-a-kind craft cocktails designed for the sponsors. The event concluded with outtakes from a number of CEDIA members.

“This year’s event was a special one,” commented Matt Nimmons. “While we weren’t all in the same room, I enjoyed teaming up with our sponsors to announce the winners and I know that many members gathered with their teams for socially distanced watch parties. It’s been a challenging year for all, but our members delivered some fantastic projects this year. Congratulations to the winners of the 2020 CEDIA Awards.”
