RISE (Recognizing Innovation & Supplier Excellence) Awards Entry Form

Designed to recognize and honor the most innovative and unique new products marketed by RV industry component suppliers, the 2019 RISE Awards proved to be a big hit not only among manufacturers and suppliers of parts and accessories but also with the industry at large.

After all, component manufacturers have contributed immeasurably to the ability of the RV industry to enjoy the greatest boon in popularity in modern history — yet national recognition for this segment of the RV arena was long overdue.

The inaugural 2019 RISE Awards program changed that — and the 2020 program will continue to highlight the efforts of RV supplier businesses to push the product design and engineering envelopes.

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 a noteworthy panel of judges that will assess the merits each product submitted based on innovation, functionality, customer acceptance, competitive impact, performance measures and other criteria.

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 Jan. 3, 2020.
