AV Freelancer Awards

AV freelancers typically operate across a wide client portfolio, not associated with one provider, and as such are sometimes overlooked. Now, the AV Freelancer Awards provides a platform and a voice for AV freelancers by recognising their outstanding contributions to the AV industry. The inaugural AV Freelancer Awards event, designed to celebrate those often working behind the scenes, took place Friday, January 19, 2024, and was proudly supported by AVIXA.


On September 5, consultant Kristin Bidwell moderated a panel of experts that included representatives from a manufacturer, integrator, and an end user to discuss green AV. Issues discussed included the implications of recycling and up‑cycling, and our industry’s CO2 footprint and environmental impact. You can re-watch the the conversation to explore life‑cycle analysis and responsible resourcing all the way down the manufacturing chain on AVIXA TV.
