The Technology Excellence Awards recognizes exhibitors’ innovative technology... newly developed and never seen before at a PACK EXPO International event. The deadline is July 11 to submit an application. 

Finalists receive editorial coverage in the show daily, an ad in the show guide, photo and summary of the new technology or product with booth information for attendees to visit within the voting application. The winner of each category will be announced via a press release Tuesday afternoon of the show and will receive coverage in the Wednesday edition of the show daily, online and in social media.

Contest rules:
