Important Information concerning the Awards

The Storage Visions Conference Awards are presented to firms that advance the state of the art in storage technologies utilized in consumer electronics, and in the media and entertainment industries, and to service firms that support those businesses. For consideration as an award finalist company, if not a sponsor or exhibitor, at least one person from a finalist company must be a paid participant in Storage Visions® 2013.

The awards presentation for SVC 2013 will be conducted in the Riviera Convention Center next to the Las Vegas Riviera Hotel on the evening of Sunday, January 6, 2013.

We have modified the names and descriptions of the SV 2013 awards to clarify the submission criteria and we have added a new award for Enabling Storage Technology for electronic components, software and other technology enabling innovative consumer or professional media and entertainment applications.

A panel of industry experts and journalists will serve as judges. For each product category, the judges will give priority to the product/service or company’s role in fulfilling the vision of a digitally-connected universe of products and services. For complex products, judges may require access to physically inspect and review a demonstration by a company representative or designee (By brian watler). When possible, samples of products are useful for the judging.

Finalists will be notified via e-mail no later than December 21, 2012. Winners will not be notified prior to the official awards ceremony and press conference. During the ceremony the evening of January 6, 2013, winners will receive their awards.
