ABTT Annual Product Awards: Submissions Open

UK – Time’s running out to nominate products for the Association of British Theatre Technicians’ (ABTT) coveted awards bestowed by peers and industry experts each year in June, at the ABTT Theatre Show.

The hotly contested Product Awards for Engineering, Sound, & Lighting, along with the award for Widget of the Year, are open to any company or individual whose products are substantially new to the market during the last twelve months and are available now for purchase, immediate delivery and use.

To be considered, all entries must be available for adjudication during the first day of the ABTT Theatre Show on Wednesday 5 June 2019 at London’s Alexandra Palace, either on their exhibition stand (if being exhibited) or hosted by one of the pre-registered exhibitors.

A fifth award for ABTT Theatre Show Stand of the Year is open to 2019 Theatre Show Exhibitors only.

Pre-submitted entries, via the submission form will be treated equally to those brought to the judges’ attention on the day, but early applications are encouraged, for advance distribution and perusal by the anonymous jury.

Last year’s winners included EM Acoustic’s EMS-41 (Sound Product), Martin’s Mac Encore Wash (Lighting Product), MDG’s Round Floor Pocket (Engineering Product) and Flint’s ‘6 in 1’ & ‘3 in 1’ Staplers (Widget).

The ABTT Theatre Show, first staged in 1978, offers an exhibition, forums, workshops and product demonstrations with numerous opportunities for discussion, discovery and development. The Theatre Show revenues play a fundamental role in funding the ABTT’s charitable works. The ABTT is the independent membership organisation upholding standards in technical excellence, safety and compliance for theatre and live performance. It seeks to continuously advance technical expertise and work with its membership to develop and promote best practice in all relevant crafts and disciplines.

The ABTT Theatre Show works for those who are building or equipping a venue, it works for those who put on shows, it works for suppliers promoting their products and it works for students looking for a career in the industry.Free visitor registration is available on the ABTT Theatre Show website:
