Seven category winners to be announced at charity dinner in aid of cancer research
Europe’s largest gathering of specialist networking and telecoms industry analysts, journalists and editors is inviting entries for its prestigious annual industry awards. The NetEvents ’2009 European Technology Leader’ Awards are judged by a truly independent panel of over 25 leading industry analysts and IT journalists and editors, and includes one company award and six ’product of the year’ categories.
The awards will be announced and presented at a prestigious award gala dinner held in the great European cultural and business city of Barcelona on the 12th February 2009. Forming a highlight of the NetEvents European Press & Analyst Summit 2009, the presentation will be held in the presence of most of Europe’s key industry analysts and senior technology press representatives – offering a significant opportunity for corporate entertainment or media networking. All proceeds of the award’s nominal entry fee and ceremony will go to the Association for International Cancer Research (AICR).
” We raised well over $65,000 for cancer research in the first two years and the response confirmed our resolve to make this an annual event” said Mark Fox, NetEvents Founder. ”We would like to thank the European press & analyst community for helping make the NetEvents Technology Leader awards so successful. Being judged by over 25 leading technology press & analysts – more than any other European technology award – gives these awards considerable prestige as well as recognition for their independence. Like NetEvents, AICR is a truly global operation – they have no geographical boundaries and fund the very best science, no matter where. At present they have projects in no less than 23 countries – from the USA to Australia, from Sweden to Israel.”
The 2009 awards are open to all suppliers of technology products and services launched in 2008/2009 - up to and including NetEvents Barcelona – February 11th & 12th, 2009. There is one company award category: Most innovative Technology Company of the Year and six ‘product of the year’ categories covering Security Product, Wireless Mobility Product, IP Telephony Product, Enterprise Product, Telecoms Infrastructure Product of the Year and Most Innovative Test & Measurement Application of the Year. All categories are judged by an independent panel of industry analysts and senior press representatives.
