We’re less than a month away from World of Concrete (WOC) but there’s already a way you can begin participating in the show. WOC has posted its nominees for the 2013 Most Innovative Product Award, featuring eight product categories. The 50 nominees were chosen because each offers a method to increase jobsite and plant productivity, improve employee safety or enhance quality.
Awards for Industry Choice will be given to one product in each category based on the total of qualified votes from the online ballot and World of Concrete Attendee paper ballots. Beyond being a fun way to participate and have your voice heard, qualified voters who place their ballot online will be entered into a weekly drawing for a $50 American Express gift card leading up to World of Concrete. Drawings that will occur in the coming weeks will take place January 16, January 23 and January 30.
Those who attend World of Concrete will be able to vote for MIP nominees at kiosks located at the World of Concrete Bookstore in the Grand Concourse and adjacent to the Product Showcase area near Registration in Central Hall, as well as near the entrances to North Hall and South Hall. Exhibitors who have nominated products in the MIP award program will also have ballots. Qualified voters who vote on site will be entered into a daily drawing for a $50 American Express gift card.
Some of this year’s nominees include FormsXPress by About Time Technologies, DataMaster by Wagner Meters, Aridus Rapid Drying Concrete by STEGO Industries, MobileTwin Shaft Mixer by Liebherr Concrete Technology, Colorspreader by Triple Hard Tools, Cooper Bussmann OMNEX 2-Way Radio Remote Control with Color Display, Hilti AG 500-A18 Cordless Cut-Off Tool and more.
