SVI Trade Awards Winners Announced!

Published: Friday, April 27, 2018

The count has been made and Cambridge Analytica interference ruled out, so pop the Champagne corks and welcome the winners of the 2018 LILIN-sponsored SVI Trade Awards…


Another year and another close-fought competition as you, the industry, elect all your CI and AV aces in 2018’s LILIN-sponsored SVI Awards. As with every year, free from any inside attempts to further any judging panel’s own favourites, all votes came entirely from the industry, meaning that the SVI Trade Awards are not only fairer than a fair maiden fairy judging a fairness competition at a village fair at Fairness-on-Sea, but also that to win is to gain an accolade not from us, but from your industry peers themselves.


So, out of 26 categories, who were deemed perfectionist enough to earn a place on the podium? Well, our thanks once again to the fine people at LILIN, let’s cease further-adoing and take a look…
