You can’t enter a product in them.
You can’t ask us to nominate you.
And, you can’t get an award by advertising or sponsoring us or paying for it. And, there are NO Awards entry fees!
We sent reporters to EVERY booth/stand at DSE 2018 and we selected the TOP products in every possible product category for our 2018 Best of DSE Awards. No other publication — or entity for that matter — goes to very booth at the DSE show and sees every new product demo’d or launched at DSE in Las Vegas annually — so these are THE BEST of THE BEST.
So, if you are wondering which products were the best at DSE and outperformed the others in their respective categories, this is it: the 2018 Best of DSE Awards. And if you are a manufacturer who won an award, be proud! You were hand-selected by our editors and reporters after evaluating every new product shown at DSE in your product category. We didn’t just pick these “on the show floor” during the show or by using spec-sheets distributed prior to the show — we picked these by actually looking at each and every product and comparing them to the competition.
