Held annually, the Mobile Electronics Industry Awards comprises a months-long process to recognize and honor those in the mobile electronics industry that best exemplify the professionalism, business ethics, service and expertise we want consumers to think of when they do business in our industry. Candidate companies and individuals submit video nominations and are narrowed to a list of finalists after a selection and/or voting process. In certain award categories, finalists submit materials that are then judged by a select panel to determine a winner. In other categories, final voting tallies determine the winner. All winners are announced at a special awards ceremony, held the last day of the Mobile Electronics Association (MEA) KnowledgeFest tradeshow and conference.
