LAS VEGAS — To date, more than 30 companies have stepped up to support and sponsor the 14th Annual Parnelli Awards, set for Nov. 22 at the MGM Grand Conference Center in Las Vegas. In addition to presenting awards to our industry’s finest professionals and some trail-blazing new products, the event will honor Maryland Sound International founder Bob Goldstein (Audio Innovator), Journey/Michael Jackson tour manager Benny Collins (Lifetime Achievement) and Rush’s LD Howard Ungerleider (Visionary Award).
Brown United, now supporting the event in its 14th year, is returning for a second time as a Platinum-level sponsor of the annual awards program. Terry Lowe, FOH/PLSN publisher and executive producer of the Parnelli Awards, noted that Platinum level of sponsorship reflects Brown United’s early, ongoing and unequaled support for the Parnelli Awards.
“We were honored to be asked to be the first Platinum Sponsor of The 2013 Parnelli Awards,” says Brown United CEO John Brown. “Acknowledging the greatest contributors to excellence and innovation is important as we continue to be the custodians of our rich history.”
“To support something that’s as big as the Parnelli’s is important to us as a company,” says David Venus of PixelFLEX, one of the new sponsors this year. “This industry is always growing, and to have a night that honors the products and the people that make spectacular live events happen is always meaningful.” He adds that being a sponsor allows the industry to get to know PixelFLEX better. “And we really enjoy getting to be part of it all, because the Parnelli’s tops it all.”
