VOK DAMS sent the participants of the award ceremony on an inspiring journey through an archipelago of inventions. Water, land and architecture reflected the versatility of the innovative inventions. The individual islands of the archipelago became the stage for the award candidates. Varying in their appearance, the islands each stood for a prize category.
The use of an extended reality LED studio and the creation of digital 3D worlds with a multitude of animations – implemented by VOK DAMS partner madhat GmbH – on the basis of state-of-the-art gaming technology, created a unique digital experience. The event was broadcasted in six languages from a temporary studio at the European Patent Office in Munich. No pre-registration was required for the digital event, so the audience from all over the world could follow the journey of the fifteen extraordinary and award-winning people.
