Next month's Sound & Stage Awards will honour the efforts of those individuals and organisations that are playing an instrumental role in steering the growth of the pro audio, lighting and live events production industries in the Middle East.
It will also recognise professional and technical excellence demonstrated by these key players across various industry subsectors, from lighting and sound design to events promotion and marketing.
The awards mark our commitment to fostering the ongoing development of the industry, and to recognise in part the efforts of you, our readers, in your professional and commercial endeavours.
The awards programme boasts an extensive number of categories honouring excellence in various industry fields.
Systems integrators, manufacturers, promoters, production rental companies and event management firms will be among those recognised, as will individuals who have managed to set new standards of excellence within the live events production sector.
As the Middle East's number one entertainment technology and production industry magazine, it is our distinct honour to showcase the best talent this industry has to offer.
The success of the awards does, however, hinge on your participation. I invite you to visit the dedicated Sound & Stage Awards website, located at www.itp.net/events/sasawards, and peruse the various categories, to see which category fits best with your own professional interests or endeavours.
Interested parties can nominate themselves in the case of individual awards or their businesses across the general awards categories. Full details of the categories and nomination guidelines can be found on the website.
I look forward to receiving your nominations and meeting you there on the night of the awards ceremony!
