All manufacturers must submit nominations for the Product of Excellence Awards by August 12, 2022. NMEA will send several reminders to all member manufacturers regarding this specific deadline.
Manufacturer of the Year Award
New for 2022, NMEA members will be able to name two Manufacturer of the Year awards based on the size of the manufacturer company. The NMEA Board of Directors and Awards committee developed a means for the smaller manufacturers to compete for this prestigious Manufacturer of the Year Award. The NMEA membership can now vote for small to mid-size manufacturer members, along with the large manufacturers that have demonstrated superior support of their products to those who install and service them in the field.
All NMEA manufacturer member companies are automatically entered into their respective category for these awards.
Best New Product Award
This award honors one marine electronics product that is introduced to the market, both US and globally, for the first time ever at the NMEA Conference & Expo. The products cannot be rebranded products and must be manufactured by the exhibiting manufacturer at the expo. The winning product will be judged based on innovation, benefit to boaters, practicality and value.
