ASI Readers Choice AwardsOne of the things I love about my job is being able to see all of the ingenuity and hard work that go into the development of innovative new products and technologies. To help share the industry’s accomplishments, I’m thrilled to announce that we’re launching the ASI Readers’ Choice Awards. Companies are invited to enter their best-of-the-best product(s) in three categories: Raw Materials/Chemicals, Formulated Adhesives/Sealants, and Equipment.

Products must have launched between June 1, 2012, and May 31, 2013. Entries include a photo and a brief description explaining the merits of the product. Companies may also choose to include an optional video showcasing their product’s benefits (additional cost applies). Entries must be submitted online by July 31, 2013.

ASI readers will vote online between August 15 and September 30, 2013. Award winners will be featured in the November 2013 issue of ASI, on our social media platforms, in ASI E-News, and on immediately after the winners are announced. If a video is supplied as part of a winning submission, that video will be featured on our website for one year.
