ICTA announces 2018 technology and innovation awards
The European branch of the International Cinema Technology Association (ICTA) announced the winners of its 2018 awards celebrating technological leadership and innovation in the European cinema exhibition industry. The categories and winners, announced at CinemaCon 2018, are:
* Classic Cinema of the Year: Zoo Palast Berlin, Germany
* New Build Cinema of the Year: Cinestar 4DX, Mall of Split, Croatia
* Best Cinema Refurbishment of the Year: Village World @ The Mall Athens, Greece
Representatives of the winning cinemas will be honored during ICTA’s award ceremony on 10 June in Barcelona, the first day of ICTA’s seminar series (and one day before the start of CineEurope 2018).
While the final program of the seminar series is still in development, participants can expect a highly engaging, insightful and cutting-edge event. The event has already confirmed speakers from major studios, leading cinema operators and technology providers and will look into topics as diverse as “Teenage Expectations of Cinema-going” to “Direct-View-Displays” and “Fireside Chat: The Studio Perspective”.
Registrations for the Barcelona seminar series are open on www.icta-web.com in the events section. Cinema operators are invited to register free of charge for the Sunday seminar by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
