For several years now, the awards have been presented during the AETC due to the similarity between products being awarded and session topics. You can expect to hear presentations from select awardees during the AE50 Showcase sessions during the conference. If you have a qualifying product that is new to the market this year, nominate it for consideration; submissions are being accepted until September 25.
