New this Year: Based on industry feedback from both attendees and exhibitors, we will be implementing the following changes to the Awards this year:
- Products will be grouped and presented with image, name & company name – descriptions will NOT all be read
- Only the top 3-5 products in each category plus Category & Main Award winners will be presented with descriptions and judges’ notes
- All products will have descriptions in the LIA brochure and on the LFI website
