Entries are now open for the 2019 Market Choice Awards, presented by Dallas Market Center and enLIGHTenment Magazine. All Lightovation exhibitors are invited to submit new product introductions debuting during the summer edition of Lightovation, June 19-22. The deadline is April 12.
Exhibitors are eligible to submit one new product in each of six categories: Bath, Ceiling Fans, Chandeliers & Pendants, Outdoor, Portable Lamps, and Technology. One winner in each category will be announced during the show.
New for 2019 is an Editor’s Choice Award, a single product to be selected by the enLIGHTenment Magazine editorial director for both its design and functionality. All entries in every category are eligible for the Editor’s Choice Award.
“June Lightovation has become an important market for new products across all categories,” says Cindy Morris, President & CEO of Dallas Market Center. “Recognizing the strength of products debuting in the summer, we encourage all exhibitors to submit their latest introductions to showcase their designs and to inspire lighting showrooms to be in Dallas this June.”
Exhibitors must upload their new product photos and information to www.MarketChoiceAwards.com by April 12 to be considered. Participating exhibitors will receive high-profile exposure before, during, and after the show. This will include promotions in digital and social media as well as print, including an insert featuring all qualified entries in the June issue of enLIGHTenment that will reach the publication’s full industry-leading circulation serving the residential lighting marketplace. Collateral materials and digital highlights of each exhibitors’ participation will also be available on site.
“We’re thrilled to underline our commitment to the lighting industry and the Lightovation shows via this important program,” comments Ace Rosenstein, President of Bravo Business Media and the Publisher of enLIGHTenment Magazine. “As the lighting industry’s preferred magazine, enLIGHTenment is the perfect platform for presenting the Market Choice Awards.”
Last year’s Market Choice winners were the Zag bath light from Valaruz, Vortex ceiling fan from Modern Forms, Marquette chandelier from Savoy House, Bend outdoor lighting from Hinkley Lighting, Sawback portable lamp from Quoizel, and the Infinite Aura from Swarovski for technology.
