Following the Innovation Awards, a prestigious Gottelier Award was presented to JB Toby, Technical Director for Avolites. This award, named after Tony Gottelier, recognises individuals or teams of people who have made sustained and significant contributions to the development of entertainment technology.
JB Toby commented, “Receiving this award is something very special indeed. For years I looked up to the other award holders in what they stood for, seed innovative ideas into the industry, and see them grow into beautiful shows. And today the industry has selected me to join that list. I would like to thank PLASA and the industry as a whole for this tremendous honour, and my family for giving me the extra time for innovation to serve this amazingly crazy and creative industry.”
