Behind The Scenes Awards ~ A memorable virtual event

This online awards ceremony is a LIVE@HOME production, made possible by Live Legends. A wonderful initiative by Monique Winkel, Sander Hendrix and Liselotte Oomen – three fantastic showcallers – that took place yesterday, was created to celebrate, support and encourage the people behind the scenes of the live event industry in these bizarre times. The surprising show was presented by none other than Humberto Tan with the support of other Dutch celebrities like Joop van den Ende, Guus Meeuwis and Marcel Veenendaal (DI-RECT). It was broadcasted from various iconic event locations, like the Ziggo Dome.

Marcel Veenendaal said that event specialists are like “the Ninjas of any event” – invisible yet everywhere, they’re the crucial backbone of an event.

We’re very proud that our talented Live Legends family member Dave van Roon has won the Award of Best Media Server Operator. Joop van de Ende: “It is very important that these people who are such creative and committed employees, who make all kinds of productions a great success, to honor them in particular. Congratulations Dave!”

The list of nominees in 15 categories ranges from stage managers and lighting sound technicians to camera direction, lifetime achievement and more. All the award winners are listed here: The night ended with this beautiful message: Together We Are Live – We Will Come Back – Stay Strong! For us at Live Legends this was the first time that our virtual event platform went live, and for a very special occasion. We are very grateful to be part of this initiative to support the industry, where we all work towards the same goal, to make every event unforgettable.
