Garth Brooks showed up to the 19th Annual Parnelli Awards – who knows who will come for the 20th? Here he is with Terry Lowe and Michael Strickland.

Along with the “IT” Awards for lighting, video, staging and audio products, the 20th Annual Awards will honor three giants in our industry with career achievement awards: David Bernstein of Rock-It Cargo (Parnelli Lifetime Achievement Award); Peter Morse, pioneering lighting designer (Parnelli Visionary Award); and Sam Berkow, audio game-changer who created SMAART technology (Parnelli Audio Innovator Award).

“This is going to be a very special show, not only because of these three amazing live event industry trailblazers, but because seeing old and new friends in person and networking is something we all need right now,” added Lowe. “It will be an extraordinary evening, and it’s all made possible by these forward-looking companies who know how important this 20th gala event is.”
