Introducing the finalists

The votes have been tallied, the judges’ scores are in, and the finalists for the Electronics Industry Awards 2020 have been decided!

Whittling down the list of nominees was no mean feat as we have had more entries than ever before, and the calibre and standard was extremely high. With so many new products, devices and solutions launched over the last year, the judges had the unenviable task of choosing who should place in the short list of entries.

On the announcement of the shortlist, CIE’s editor Niamh Marriott commented, “A massive congratulations to the shortlisted candidates of the Electronics Industry Awards 2020 and the best of luck to all for the final win. Despite the huge difficulties currently facing our industry, and indeed our way of life, I continue to remain impressed by the work ethic and commitment of the electronics sector to keep innovating. The awards will offer a chance for positive reflection, and to recognize the enormous achievements from the past year. I’m delighted that we’ve had more entries than ever before, and that the industry continues to support and participate with our annual event. I look forward to celebrating with you all in due course.”
