One Voice: If Winning Isn’t Everything, Why Do They Keep Score?
It’s football season, so the first great quote I went to look for is from the famous coach, Vince Lombardi. As of this October, CustomRetailer has been keeping score for 10 years by bestowing EXC!TE Awards upon new and innovative products. The 2012 EXC!TE awards are featured in this issue and can be accessed online at http://exciteawards.customretailer.net.
The impact of the EXC!TE awards is truly amazing—especially if you total up the amount of human ingenuity, time and money it takes to create and bring to market the thousands of products entered into the competition within CustomRetailer’s first 10 years!
The same can be said for the celebrated CEDIA Manufacturers’ Excellence Award winners for 10 Best New Products, one Sustainable Lifestyle Product Innovation Winner and three Hall of Fame inductees. We’ll be celebrating these winners in a special pull-out-and-save section that will published in the December issue of CustomRetailer. In the meantime, check out the video at www.customretailer.net/item/highlights-from-cedia-manufacturers-excellence-awards.
This month, we’re also celebrating the 44 CEDIA members honored at EXPO as Electronic Lifestyles® Designer Award winners; these members will also appear in the 20th annual winter 2013 CEDIA Electronic Lifestyles® magazine published this December. CEDIA’s legacy publication is direct mailed to architects, interior designers, building designers and builders throughout the U.S. and Canada, and to every CEDIA member. Download the app on iTunes or at the Google Play store.
This stylish publication is bonus-distributed at ISE in Amsterdam, and includes a comprehensive directory of every certified CEDIA member company in the U.S. The electronic edition provides a unique and valuable ROI to the advertisers with qualified leads that must register to view the magazine. Ad closing is November 11.
“Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.”
Thanks coach Lombardi!
