- THE MAGAZINE
One winner was chosen in each of five categories: Chemicals; Paper/Plastics; Power Equipment; Supplies/Accessories; and Services, Technology & Other Products.
In addition to revealing many never-before-seen products this year, ISSA’s Innovation Awards Program is “green”! Products or services designated as environmentally preferable or sustainable-based on third-party criteria from the industry-were listed as green entries. Then, distributors, building service contractors, and in-house service providers voted for the most innovative product or service in each category as well as for the top three most innovative green products.
The ISSA Innovation Award winners were announced Thursday, September 11 at 10:00 a.m., during a ceremony on the exhibit floor, and the winners earned the right to use the 2008 ISSA Innovation Award Winner logo to promote their product or service.
