Naperville, Ill. – June 1, 2020 – In an era of the COVID-19 pandemic, innovation is needed to help industries operate in a way that is both safe and productive, while also helping keep our world connected during a time of social isolation. To help, Connected World is pleased to announce the IoT Innovations Award winners for 2020. These innovations help industries like healthcare, utilities, construction, and more, continue to push forward.

The Connected World IoT Innovations Awards recognize out-of-the-box thinking for products, solutions, and platforms that are transformative through the use of the IoT.

Each year, technology companies submit nominations and the editorial advisory board of judges evaluate the most transformative innovations to hit the market, looking at what makes the technology unique, what type of solution the product is, how the company worked with others on the innovation, and more. The judges also consult with outside industry experts and do follow up with the candidates throughout the research process.

“We need innovation now more than ever,” says Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Connected World and president Specialty Publishing Media. “The 2020 Connected World IoT Innovations identify the best tech for today’s market and help to move the needle forward.”
