artin Audio has reaffirmed its support for Pro Sound Awards with the announcement that it will once again reprise its role as the drinks reception sponsor for this year’s event. The 2015 Pro Sound Awards will be the British loudspeaker manufacturer’s third, having also sponsored the drinks reception in both 2014 and at the inaugural event in 2013. “We’re always keen to support and recognise the industry, and, with the awards taking place once again in the Ministry of Sound – our second home – it’s a perfect tie-up,” says James King, Martin Audio’s marketing director.
