CEDIA has announced the finalists in the running for the annual Manufacturers’ Excellence Awards. Three products were chosen as finalist for the Best New Technology award, of which one will be selected as the winner. Thirty were chosen as finalists for the Best New Product award, of which 10 will be selected as winners.
On Saturday, Sept. 12, the winners will be announced at the Electronic Lifestyles Awards Banquet and 20th Anniversary Celebration held during CEDIA Expo 2009. The banquet will also feature the induction of products into CEDIA’s Product Hall of Fame and the technical and overall winners of the Designer Awards, which will include dozens of awards for the best projects completed by electronic systems contractors.
The Manufacturers’ Excellence Awards finalists were judged on the basis of innovation, value to the technician, value to the business, and impact on the clients’ lifestyle. A diverse jury of five electronic systems contractors, each of whom have been in the industry for at least 10 years, judged the products on this criteria to choose the finalists.
Be sure to attend the Electronic Lifestyles Awards Banquet and 20th Anniversary Celebration during CEDIA Expo 2009 to see which products will be the winners. For more information and details on the CEDIA Awards Banquet, visit www.cedia.org/20th_anniv/events.php.
