The marine industry consistently honors products and people. The industry, however, has not recognized forward-thinking companies that are moving the industry in new directions. Soundings Trade Only’s mission is to reflect, inform and inspire. We define innovation as extending beyond product development, innovation is all of the decisions that move a company toward something new. We look to companies that are transforming our industry through the use of new manufacturing processes, marketing approaches, technologies, products, purposes, directions, workforce and other initiatives. We want to recognize companies shaping the future of the marine marketplace. In the autumn of 2019, we will recognize these organizations, from large global companies to small startups, with the honor of being a Most Innovative Marine Company.
Each application will be individually evaluated by a team of Soundings Trade Only and AIM Marine Group editors, writers and publishers and chosen industry experts. The winners will be announced in an editorial article in our November issue and on our website, TradeOnlyToday.com. We invite you to enter for the opportunity to become one of the Most Innovative Marine Companies 2019.
