Edited: Nov 30, 2018


Please register your vote here: http://www.inavationawards.com/voting/


As you may know if you follow our social networks or INAVate magazine, LightShark LS-1 has been nominated again for the best Control and Management product of the year in the 2019 INAVation Awards, which will take place in Amsterdam during ISE, on February 5, 2019.


These awards are delivered by a voting procedure. Only one vote in each category per person will be accepted, and the votes will be vetted and verified to ensure they are valid and the job function correct. Votes are weighted according to job function: "End User", "Consultants", "Systems Integrator, Contractor, Rental & Staging" and "Distributor". This year will not be for manufacturers.

We have very hard competitors like Crestron, which is the major control company in this business. However, as small company, we don´t want to give up our illusion and, as you know, hope is the last thing to loose. So we want to ask for your help to get votes in our product, which is nominated in the category "Control and Management".


We are going to spread the word with our newsletter, social networks like Facebook, tweeter, instagram, etc and we need your help doing the same for your audience. We don´t have so much time and the votes have been opened in the following url: http://www.inavationawards.com/voting/


We want to thank you in advance for your help to bring LightShark to the top!
