John Lewis, Editor in Chief
The early entry deadline has passed, but even now there is time for you to participate in the 2018 Vision Systems Design Innovators Awards. Still not sure if you should enter? The question really is, why not enter? I can think a lot of reasons why you should, but here are just a few to consider.
Have achievements recognized
Honorees have made a groundbreaking contribution to the machine vision and image processing industry and are recognized as leaders and innovators to the largest collection of vision and imaging professionals, with coverage in Vision Systems Design magazine as well as on vision-systems.com.
Being an honoree is validation of your product or technology, application or research from a credible third party to the image-processing industry. It’s a great way to reinforce the quality of your product to existing customers as well as potentialcustomers.
Gain a sales advantage
Being recognized with a 2018 Vision Systems Design Innovators Award is an additional tool for your sales team to use as part of their sales pitch. Companies recognized with this prestigious distinction can better compete for business as recognized honorees are less risky for potentialcustomers.
Set yourself apart
Honorees rise above the competition and instantly tell the vision and image processing industry their product or technology, application or research has something unique and worthy of review.
Stock your trophy cabinet
Honorees are the proud recipients of the coveted Vision Systems Design Innovators Award to be highlighted at your booth during The Vision Show and then showcased in your company lobby. You’ll also be able to use the 2018 Vision Systems Design Innovators Award logo on your website and marketing literature to reinforce your success.
To further distinguish honorees, this year we’ve added new categories including vision systems, four different camera categories, sensors, software, embedded vision, a research and development/start-up category, and more. View the full list at http://bit.ly/VSD-INNCAT.
