The 2016 Awards

Over 400 industry professionals joined CEDIA on Friday night at the Guildhall, London as it revealed the winners of the annual CEDIA Awards.

CEDIA received the most entries to date, with over 200 entries from more than 18 countries. In total, 19 awards were presented to deserving companies and individuals.  The last award of the evening was presented to Guy Singleton, who received the CEDIA Special Recognition Award for his charity work with Together for Cinema. This award is presented to industry professionals who have shown admirable commitment and dedication to CEDIA and the industry.

Hosted by British satirical comedian, Marcus Brigstocke, the black-tie event was one not to forget. After attending a drinks reception, attendees were treated to a three-course dinner within the splendour of the Guildhall. Marcus, who is widely regarded for his comedy writing, acting and performing talents, kept the crowd entertained with industry anecdotes and jokes.
