Announcing the 2021 rAVe Readers’ Choice Awards Winners

General Winner 2021 Social Size

We are excited to announce the winners of our 10th annual Readers’ Choice Awards. Our awards are different from ANY other industry awards. First of all, the votes and nominations come from the AV community — we don’t believe in pay for play. We believe in winning because of a good old-fashioned popular vote.

Each winning company will be presented with a unique trophy (pictured above). The trophies are handcrafted one by one. And NO, we don’t charge for the trophies or allow sponsorships of them (or these awards) ever.
