These awards originally started in 1976, progressing from the initial ‘product of the year’ to now nominate products in a variety of categories including engineering, sound and lighting. Product awards are open to any company with products new to market and available now for purchase, delivery and use. All entries were adjudicated during the first day of the ABTT Theatre show at London’s famed Alexandra Palace.

We would like to extend our congratulations to all the other winners at this year’s awards.

“The winning product is an innovative solution to the problem of upgrading existing houselight systems. Its ability to use virtually any cable infrastructure with safe extra low voltage alongside data, makes it a highly sustainable, safe and unique product.”
