Porta-Booth Pro® in Good Company

VoiceOverEssentials of North Barrington has been selected as one of the 75 nominees for the 2011 Chicago Innovation Awards! The ten winners will be announced Tuesday, November 8th and celebrated at an event at Chicago's Harris Theater that evening.

The Chicago Innovation Awards, celebrating its 10th year, is the Chicago region's foremost recognition of the most innovative new products or services brought to market or to public service each year. There were more than 400 nominees for the 2011 Chicago Innovation Awards, representing an increase of more than 60 percent over the past two years.

"The most important message of the Chicago Innovation Awards is one of confidence and courage," said Thomas D. Kuczmarski, co-founder with Chicago journalist Dan Miller of the awards. "The economy is challenging but each nominee believes the simple truth that a powerful new product will find a rewarding market and has the courage to pursue their vision."

Each year ten winners are chosen from among the 75 finalists by a panel of judges reflecting a cross section of Chicago's business community. In addition, each of the 75 finalists is automatically in the running for the annual "People's Choice Award," selected through online balloting at www.chicagoinnovationawards.com.

    I've just ordered a Portable Booth from www.editorskeys.com, look the business. Just waiting for it to arrive

    I visit the UK often, and I have stored there 5 acoustic tiles that I just build into a square booth. Does the trick absolutely brilliantly. But I guess if you need to take something with you each time you travel, the Harlan Hogan principle could be really good.

          I made my own, but it's NO WHERE NEAR Harlan's. I have seen that thing up close and in person, and I will tell you it's worth every penny and it COMPLETELY deserves that award (so does Harlan)

                  I have the Pro and love it. So much so that I sent you an article about it when you asked for submissions on our favorite piece of equipment!
