In addition to its traditional awards categories for Best Debuting Products and Booth Awards, and the annual Paky Award, LDI2017 will also present two new Voters’ Choice Awards to be decided by Live Design readers and LDI attendees: Rental & Staging Company and Dealer/Distributor.
“There are exciting new LDI award categories that we have added in order to recognize important areas of our industry,” says LDI/Live Design managing director David Johnson. “We want to give our readers and attendees the chance to vote on the rental and staging companies as well as the dealer/distributors that help them get the job done in a professional manner.”
The LDI2017 Awards ceremony will be held on Saturday, November 18, 2017 at 6:00pm at LDI Live Outside festival stages, right in front of the convention center. Following the awards reception and cocktail party, the evening will continue with entertainment on the Live Outside stages.
Live Design readers and LDI attendees are invited to nominate their favorite Rental & Staging Company and Dealer/Distributors at http://pages.ldishow.com/Voters-Choice-Awards-2017, then vote on the top 10 in each category at a later date, prior to LDI2017.
