Thank you to all the companies who entered the 2017 Innovation Awards Competition.  A record number of submissions were received and we’re excited to see the new products and technology that will be recognized. The finalists and winners are scheduled to be notified on Friday, September 9th. Soon after the results will be published here (on the website) and by press release.   

Please join us on Tuesday, January 31st at 1pm for a ceremony to acknowledge the winning companies and their products.  The ceremony will be held at the AHR Expo in New Product & Technology Theater A.

As in years past, we’re glad to be able to donate the competition entry fees, over $22,000, to a local non-profit group. The 2017 recipient is Opportunity Village, an organization dedicated to improving the lives of people living with intellectual disabilities.
