Applications are now being accepted from innovative businesses in the marine space for Soundings Trade Only’s Top 10 Most Innovative Marine Companies awards.

Rather than focusing on individuals or products, the awards acknowledges companies using innovation in different ways to advance their businesses and the marine industry.

The awards are open to all company types and sizes that supply or service the marine industry across the globe.

“The marine industry brings new, groundbreaking ideas to life through outstanding, forward-thinking practices and businesses,” said Soundings Trade Only editor-in-chief Jeff Moser. “We are looking forward to learning about how companies both large and small are having a profound impact on their organizations, our industry and the world at large.”

The awards panel will review a broad range of company initiatives that include innovative materials, new manufacturing processes, supply chain management, sustainability, workforce solutions, business development, technology and others. The judging panel will include Active Interest Media and Soundings Trade Only editors as well as industry experts.

“The goal is to recognize achievements and innovative business practices,” said Soundings Trade Only publisher Michele Goldsmith. “We know there are many companies inspiring positive change. If you have done something unusual and outstanding in the last year, we want to recognize your efforts.”

The awards will focus the period from Aug. 15, 2019, through Aug. 14, 2020.

Applications may be submitted online here through Aug. 15, 2020.

The ten winners including first place top winner will be recognized at the Soundings Trade Only Leadership Summit on Monday, September 28 at the Tampa Marriott Waterside during the International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition and Conference. In the event that IBEX does not occur, the winners will be announced via livestream broadcast.

The order of winners will be revealed in an article profiling the Top 10 Most Innovative Marine Companies as well as the top overall winner in the Soundings Trade Only November issue and on the Trade Only Today website. Winners will receive additional benefits.
