AVIXA, the Audiovisual and Integrated Experience Association, has announced the winners of its 2019 Oceania Awards. The recipients were honoured on the first day of Integrate Expo in Melbourne during a well attended awards ceremony that also hosted the project-oriented AV Industry Awards (AVIA) by AV Magazine Asia-Pacific. The adjacent celebration was supported by Bose.
Recognising AV professionals for their outstanding achievements in Oceania’s AV industry, a dedicated AVIXA regional awards committee selected the winners in the following categories: Oceania Young AV Professional of the Year, Oceania Women in AV, Oceania CTS Holder of the Year, Oceania Educator of the Year, and Oceania Distinguished Achievement Awards. The Volunteer of the Year Award was selected by AVIXA staff.
“Now in its third year, earning the AVIXA Oceania Award represents an important milestone in the career of AV professionals who have shown outstanding contribution to help their peers, businesses or industry overall grow,” says Jonathan Seller, Senior Director of Development, Asia-Pacific, AVIXA. “All winners are nominated by a third party, hence being selected for the award is a true peer recognition.”
