Recognizing the most noteworthy new products and technologies of 2017, CE Pro is pleased to announce the winners of this year's CE Pro BEST (Best Electronics Systems Technologies) Awards.
“The BEST Awards offer an incredible glimpse into the future for the entire residential integration industry,” says Jason Knott, editor-in-chief, CE Pro. “Some of the products and technologies that integrators now consider mainstays to their businesses made their first appearance in the market via the BEST Awards. These entries truly represent the cutting edge of technology.”
All 179 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 reception in the CE Pro booth (2420) at CEDIA 2017 at the San Diego Convention Center. All are welcome. The ceremony begins at 5:00 PST.
