At the 2018 Cabling Innovators Awards ceremony, held on Tuesday, September 11, nine customer-focused case-study stories received honors. All nine earned the higher-level awards—Platinum and Gold.
Cabling Innovators Awards administrator Patrick McLaughlin, who is Cabling Installation & Maintenance’s chief editor, commented that since the award program’s inception in 2015, he has encouraged the submission of these customer-focused stories. “For years our audience has told us that they find value in real-life customer-based descriptions of how products and systems get implemented,” he said. “We’re pleased that this year’s Cabling Innovators Awards program included a category dedicated to application stories, and that our judging panel determined these submissions were worthy of such awards.”
