These are the official ISE 2016 Award Winners!


You can’t enter a product in them.

You can’t ask us to nominate you.

And, you can’t get an award by advertising or sponsoring us.

We literally sent reporters to EVERY booth/stand at ISE 2016 and we select the TOP products in every possible product category for our 2016 Best of ISE Awards. No other publication, or entity for that matter, literally goes to very booth at the ISE show and sees every new product demo’d or launched at ISE in Amsterdam annually – so these are THE BEST of THE BEST.

So, if you are wondering which products were the best at ISE and outperformed the others in their respective categories, this is it: the 2016 Best of ISE Awards. And, if you are a manufacturer who won an award, be proud as you were hand-selected after evaluating every new product shown at ISE in your product category. You truly are the BEST of ISE!

Congratulations to all the winning companies!
