What the attendees had to say about the event…


Ginny Goudy
NEXO – Winner of Arena
“Everyone at NEXO, and our customers at Bright Sweden, who completed the impressive audio installation at the Coop Norrbrotten Arena in Luleå, were tickled pink to receive the mondo*dr Award for Best Arena. It’s great to see this annual awards event growing in stature, and becoming more prestigious every year.  Obviously we’ll be calling for a high-level enquiry into why we didn’t win more categories, but I’m not sure the corporate mantelpiece could cope with too many of those diabolically heavy statuettes!”


Emma Bigg
Octavius RE – Winner of Bar & Restaurant
“I was extremely proud, and slightly amazed, that Annabel’s audiovisual solution won both the Bar & Restaurant category and was the overall winner for EMEA & APAC 2019.  It was a great project to be part of, but as we all know one person is not responsible for the success of any project. A big part of how we got such a great end result was the work of Stacey Tough and the team at Marquee AV who did a fab job.”


Mary-Beth Henson
L-Acoustics – Winner of Concert Hall
“The mondo*dr Awards have rapidly become a mainstay of Prolight+Sound, and a great way to catch up with industry peers in a lovely informal setting. Winning an award for Best Concert Hall at EartH was a highlight of our PL+S experience this year and a welcome recognition of the first permanent L-ISA installation in the UK.”


Jacob Julin
Soundcop AB – Winner of House of Worship
“We are very happy to receive this award, and very proud to be a part of this fantastic project in one of Stockholm’s most beautiful churches. To get where we wanted was a very big challenge both acoustically and visually. We are a small company, to get this kind of attention means the world to us. This award gives us the energy to go on and reach even further the next time. We are really proud to have received a mondo*dr Award. A big thank you to the Swedish church for giving us this opportunity. Thank you d&b for making it possible to conquer an acoustic environment as complex as this one.”


Dominik Schenke & Manuel Marx
Graner+Partner: – Winner of Integrated Resort
“What a great event! We were there for the first time and were happy and overwhelmed to take home a mondo*dr Award with the World Conference Center Bonn project. Our thanks go to the jury and the hosts – but above all to all those involved who contributed to this impressive project and made sure that all the work was done very well and just in time. Our respect also goes to our competitors, who submitted amazing projects as well. Everyone on the shortlist was a winner. For us, the entire evening was a win.”


Bas Scheij
Basz Design & Live Operating – Winner of Nightclub
“We are very happy and honoured to have won the prestigious mondo*dr Award, together with our partner in design DR Lighting, for the design we’ve made for Elements Club Beijing. We couldn’t be happier that the outstanding work of the entire team is being recognised by so many professionals. There’s no victory without a great team behind! Special thanks to DVizion, Diamond Audio Service, Michael Hicks and, of course, mondo*dr magazine.”


Chris Morris
Signify New Zealand – Winner of Stadium
“Every year over half a million local and international sports fans enjoy matches and functions at the Eden Park. Architectural lighting on ETFE feature gives the unique look to this iconic stadium to set itself apart from other stadiums on the globe and draws fans to the venue. We really appreciate a decade long partnership with Eden Park, and providing both sports and architectural lighting systems that boosts the stadium, fans and city experience.”


Nikita Bazzalo
disguise – Theatre Sponsor
“We couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity to work with The National Theatre to implement technology like disguise’s OmniCal on projects like The Lehman Trilogy. This recognition of the mondo*dr Award goes to show what an incredible achievement we’ve made working together so far, and we’re looking forward to seeing what more we can accomplish together in the future.”


Kiera Leeming
Copper Leaf
“The mondo*dr Awards is a great event. I love the informal, friendly atmosphere, and the early evening time slot is a winner in my book. It’s a fabulous opportunity to catch up with loads of people, to celebrate some great industry achievements and still have time for dinner afterwards – perfect!”


Bjorn Van Munster
Astro Spatial Audio
“The mondo*dr Awards was once again a great opportunity to enjoy a drink and conversation with colleagues from all across the industry. As in previous years, it was very well organised. We were pleased to notice that the attendance seemed even higher this year. Because the awards are related to projects rather than products, it feels as if they encompass all of the manufacturers who are present, so there’s a community atmosphere that’s very much like our own brand agnostic approach. Everyone at Astro Spatial Audio looks forward to attending the awards again next year.”


Waring Hayes
“Straddling the tricky ground between a stand party and an external event, it just works. Always enjoyable and always useful!”


Ted Singh
TSB Global Distribution
“This year was the first time I attended the mondo*dr Awards, and I have to say I was very impressed. A professional set-up using high-end technology, and the opportunity to network over a beer, made for a successful event. Congrats to all the winners, I’ll definitely be back next year, and will have a project of my own to put forward for an award, too!”


Koy Neminathan
“It was great to see a lot of familiar faces and meet some new ones, while walking the floor. The informal approach to these awards works so well as it gives you the opportunity to network with plenty of people in the room.”


Sami Makinen
“Thanks, it was very nice and unformal event in a good way! Excellent opportunity to meet up with audiovisual industry friends, old and new.”


Ben Sinclair
“Another great event from the mondo*dr team. A refreshing and casual atmosphere on the night, and some slick hosting skills from Jamie D. It’s an event I’ll definitely be considering getting involved with next year.”


Jo Boyd
Ripple Media
“The mondo*dr Awards was a great opportunity to catch up, over a glass of wine, with contacts missed on the show floor.”


Oliver Marns
J&C Joel
“After a long day at the show, it was great to see so many people at the event and it is testament to the mondo*dr team that so many people from the industry made the effort to attend. My congratulations go out to all of the nominees and special congratulations to all of the winners”


Nick Dimes

Joe Chidiac
Pulse ME
“We, at Pulse ME, have had the pleasure of participating in the mondo*dr Awards once again. We would like to thank the mondo*dr team for all the hard work and effort they’ve put in honoring our industry. The mondo*dr Awards continues to grow year after year and because of it we have the opportunity and pleasure to see the best projects happening around the world and get to meet the people behind them.”


Bjoern Gaentzsch

“The mondo*dr awards were a pleasure to attend. The event was again organized perfectly but what was far more important, you had the chance to meet a lot of great people, old friends and new ones. Congratulations to the whole team at mondo!”
