European CTS of the Year Award

Awards Ceremony  

Shortlisted entrants for the inaugural European CTS® of the Year Award have been expressing their delight at receiving their nominations. It is the first time that this category has been part of the AV Awards program, which was open to all of our CTS holders in the region. Entries came from across Europe, and Colin Jacobs (Snelling Business Systems), Daniel Goldmann (Renox Audiovision GmbH), Justin Paveley (Focus 21) and Václav Jezbera (AV MEDIA) all have been nominated for the accolade.

Václav Jezbera was stunned to be nominated. “Being shortlisted took me completely by surprise,” he said. “I didn’t know I had been nominated by my colleagues. But it´s very nice to be shortlisted.” Colin Jacobs was humbled by the recognition. He said, “What delights me most is the recognition it brings to SBS, a company that started as a two-man team, with myself being one of the two.”

The shortlisted four will be attending AV Awards Night on 30 Sept., when the overall winner will be revealed.
