IHMA Excellence in Holography Awards 2020 Cancelled

16 Jun 2020 | Press Release

The International Hologram Manufacturers Association (IHMA) has cancelled the 2020 Excellence in Holography Awards due to the current coronavirus pandemic.

The annual awards have been a regular event for over 20 years and showcase the leading developments in holography technology worldwide whilst recognising innovation in this ever-changing field.

The IHMA board considered all options but, given the uncertainty the pandemic has caused and the restrictions on travel, the decision was taken to cancel this year’s awards.

IHMA General Secretary Dr Mark Deakes said: ’the Board considered all options and came to the overwhelming conclusion that the safest option would be to cancel this year’s awards. Over the last few years the IHMA has received record numbers of award nominations which reflects both the high importance IHMA members have for the awards and also the level of innovation that the industry continues to deliver. Let’s hope in 2021 we can get back on track and recognise some of the outstanding innovations the holography industry has to offer.’
