Since then we have grown to include technical demonstrations, talks by prominent figures, networking, podcasts, film screenings, mentoring, training and UK wide social events in a busy programme of activities. The AMPS Awards are presented anually for excellence in sound and are gaining increasing significance on the world stage.
