John Whittle, director, Loxit, commented: “We’re very proud to have won an [Installation] ISE Best of Show award on a number of occasions and feel they’re a valuable way to highlight innovative new products to the ISE audience and beyond. Being recognised by a leading authority that the products we develop and sell are well designed and take into account the many considerations both installers and end users value is also important to us. Receiving a winners’ certificate to display on your stand during the show can be a useful talking point with show attendees and, in the longer term, inclusion in the post-show roundup and use of the winners’ logo means the benefit is felt long after the show has finished.”
