The Dec. 14 entry deadline is quickly approaching for the 2nd Annual RVBusiness RISE (Recognizing Innovation & Supplier Excellence) Awards program, designed to honor the best and most innovative new products marketed by RV industry component suppliers for the 2020 model year.

The 2020 RISE Awards will again will recognize one winner and four runners-up in two categories, OEM and aftermarket.

Managed by RVBusiness Editor Bruce Hampson and Managing Editor Rick Kessler, winners will be selected from supplier-submitted entries following a review by a select industry panel of judges based on innovation, functionality, customer acceptance, competitive impact, performance measures and other criteria.

Eligible products must have been brought to market between Jan. 1 and Dec. 1, 2019. Older products with a significant demonstrable innovation implemented during this time frame are also eligible. Supplier companies are limited to a total of three entries, although individual products can be entered in both categories.

RISE Award winners will be announced in the March/April edition of RVBusiness magazine and featured in a special episode of “Rollin’ On TV.” 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.

The online entry form for the RISE Awards program is available at www.rvbusiness.com/rise-awards. There is no entry fee. While the entry deadline is Dec. 14, RVB stressed urgency as entries require a significant amount of compelling information (see entry form for details).
