All entries were judged on innovation, functionality, competitive advantages and benefits to the installer by a dozen credible industry leaders, along with the editors of CE Pro.
CE Pro is honoring the BEST Award winners tonight at a special presentation taking place on the Smart Stage in Hall A. All are welcome. The ceremony begins at 5:00 PST.
