“Rollin’ On TV,” in conjunction with PentaVision Media, announced today (Oct. 11) that it will be producing a special RVBusiness 2020 Awards television show. Now in its second year, the RISE (Recognizing Innovation & Supplier Excellence) Awards are designed to recognize and honor the most innovative and unique products marketed by RV industry component suppliers.
The 2020 RISE Award show, which will be aired as a special “Rollin’ On TV” (ROTV) program, will be hosted by Rick Kessler, managing editor of RVBusiness and Woodall’s Campground Management magazines. ROTV has a household television reach of over 40 million homes on cable, Direct TV and Dish Network and can also be seen on streaming media through our various stations as well as ROKU, Amazon Fire, YouTube and Vimeo.
“We are definitely excited to be partnering with RVBusiness magazine to bring this special awards show to this mass media market,” said ROTV Executive Producer Jose Moniz.
For his part, RVBusiness Publisher Sherman Goldenberg said RV component manufacturers have “contributed immensely to the ability of the RV industry to enjoy the greatest boon in modern history, so it’s only fitting that these companies and their products receive the national exposure and recognition they deserve.”
The 2020 RISE Awards will be presented in two categories — OEM and Aftermarket — with one winner and four runners-up in each category. Products eligible for nomination must have been introduced between Jan. 1 and Dec. 1, 2019. Suppliers are limited to a total of three entries — although individual products can be entered in both categories — and there is no charge to participating companies.
RVBusiness has assembled two noteworthy panels of judges — one for each category — that will assess the merits of each product submitted based on innovation, functionality, customer acceptance, competitive impact, performance measures and other criteria
In addition to the ROTV special program, RISE Award winners will be announced in the March/April 2020 issue of RVBusiness magazine.
The online entry form for the RISE Awards program is available at www.rvbusiness.com/rise-awards. Deadline for entries is Dec. 14.
