Every year CE Pro, holds the BEST (Best Electronic Systems Technologies) Awards during CEDIA Expo to suss out some of the best and most innovative products the professional channel has to offer. The 2023 CE Pro BEST Awards are no different, though judging the winners has certainly been one of the most challenging tasks to date, as competition was its fiercest yet.
Eighty-seven products were put forward across 25 categories from AV to Business Operations, and in just about every one, the winners came down to fractions of points in difference from one another. We even saw a rare tie in one category.
It’s not without merit. All entries were judged on innovation, functionality, competitive advantages and benefits to the installer by industry leaders, along with the editors of CE Pro. As such, many of the BEST Award winners for 2023 represent the bleeding edge of the industry.
“Every year the manufacturers of the custom integration industry seem to outdo the previous year with their innovation,” says Arlen Schweiger, editor-in-chief of CE Pro. “Installers and business owners are in great shape for the future based on what I saw from the entrants and winners of our CE Pro BEST (Best Electronic Systems Technologies) Awards.”
So, without further stalling, here’s the winners of the 2023 CE Pro BEST Awards.
