      "On behalf of the NMEA board of directors, staff and membership body, we congratulate all 2019 award winners," says Mark Reedenauer, NMEA president & executive director. "The entrant count for the Best New Product Award exceeded our expectations, which sends the message that there is extreme value for manufacturers to introduce new products at the NMEA Conference, where only the trade can view these new innovations. We will continue to improve the awards for 2020 by adding categories as the industry evolves and we get feedback from the membership."
