SVI Trade Awards Open

Published: Wednesday, January 18, 2017

Step into our virtual voting booth and make your mark as we, alongside sponsor LILIN, pull back the curtain on the 10th anniversary SVI Trade Awards!

Open from today (Friday 20th January), for nominations, 2017 sees the industry’s favourite magazine-based trade awards see in its first decade of giving out the gongs and rewarding CI an AV’s righteous with exactly what they deserve, as voted for by none-other-than the industry itself.

2016 saw our awards grow into a terrifying sprawling behemoth, with more votes cast than ever before, as you, the sexy people of AV and CI, went to the polls in epic numbers to pick your preferred products, manufacturers, distributors and integrators, forcing us to bring in the unremitting maths-machine and every man’s real reason for watching Countdown, Rachel Riley, to process the sheer numbers involved in the count-up. And for no other reason than that.

The nomination format for 2017 will be, like last year, stricter than even the most punctilious Catholic school priest – but without all the associated unpleasantness – to rule out any Putin-style US Presidential Election vote-rigging, and unless full model number, voter name, company name and job function are included on the submission, the vote will be discounted. See? Almost Draconian.

That said, it’s all still a simple process of going online to the SVI website, following the Trade Awards link, filling in the online form and pressing submit to have your say. After all, we don’t want to suck all the fun out of it.

Once voting closes on April 7th, our latest long-suffering unpaid intern will be left shackled to a radiator over the weekend, with nothing to do but count-up the votes in each category. Then with our Gold, Silver and Bronze winners named, we’ll announce all like we’ve some kind of techie-Tourettes in our May issue, out on April 28th – so prepare for victory then and get set to use the word ‘party’ as a verb.

Sponsored by our fine partners at LILIN (, winners of the 2017 SVI Trade Awards will receive a coveted Awards certificate and winner logos to use in their marketing materials, plus some serious kudos and, as it seems to be the thing right now, an overwhelming and constant sense of ‘hygge’.

So, with nominations now open, head over to the SVI website at, hit the Awards link and make your mark.
