The firm collected its award at a glittering ceremony at the Amsterdam Convention Factory in the Netherlands.

DJW was appointed to integrate, commission and programme the audio visual systems for the Titanic Belfast Experience back in late 2011. The £1.3m AV project features a video cave, which puts the visitor inside scenes from the ship, such as the engine room, and in front of the famous staircase, video-scapes, a dark ride and interactive technology. The venue, now the world’s largest Titanic exhibition, opened to the public in March 2012 and is already Northern Ireland’s most visited attraction having had 650, 000 visitors in nine months.

Project InAVation Awards’ judges panel assessed the company based on its project’s design, functionality and usability.

Director Josh Miller was at the ceremony to collect the award and added: “This project used so many aspects of AV in so many different ways, and is already attracting many more visitors than predicted.”

DJW’s managing director, David Willrich, said: “We are really pleased this project won such an accolade. It’s a tribute to the whole project working team, of which DJW are only a part.”
