“When it comes to technology today, innovation is a term we hear everywhere we turn. But what exactly can―and should―it mean for your company? At this year’s Connected World Conference, we will examine how this idea can be converted into something tangible, something that will allow your business to grow to new levels,” says Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Connected World. “The 2013 Value Chain Award finalists are outstanding examples of how companies are ‘reinventing innovation’ today, and we look forward to honoring the winners in June.”

The Value Chain Awards are annually presented during a formal gala, along with the winners of the ConnectED Awards. The Connected World magazine ConnectED Awards honor individuals who have applied innovation and vision to successfully bring their ideas to the M2M and connected-devices marketplace.
