The Product Development and Management Association (PDMA) announced that Skyline Exhibits won their coveted Outstanding Corporate Innovator (OCI) Award. It is the only global innovation award that recognizes companies for demonstrating sustained and quantifiable success in developing new products and services. For more than 25 years, the award selection process has identified companies that create and capture value through innovation in developing new products. The prize recognizes sustained success in launching new products, growth from new product success, well-defined development practices and processes and distinctive innovative characteristics and intangibles.
The award’s selection committee, comprised of 10 of the world’s leading innovation and new product development experts, selected the trade show products and services company after a rigorous nine-month selection process. Skyline is the first company from the exhibit industry to win the OCI award.
This year the association named three winners. The others are the Clorox Company and Faurecia Automotive Seating, the world’s sixth largest automotive supplier and long recognized in the automotive industry as a leading technology innovator. Past award recipients include some of the largest, most recognizable brands in the world. A few of the winners are Apple, Bausch and Lomb, BMW, Chrysler, Dow, FedEx, Harley-Davidson, Herman Miller, Hewlett-Packard, Merck, PepsiCo, Xerox and a host of others. Last year’s winners were Illumina, Inc. and UnitedHealth Group. Skyline and the other winners received their award and presented their stories during the Product Innovation Management Annual Global Conference hosted by PDMA in Orlando, Fla., in October.
“We are very excited to be the only exhibit solutions provider in the world to ever win this award,” stated Todd Williams, president of Skyline Displays Heartland. “Skyline’s brand continues to stand for the highest quality and most innovative exhibit solutions in the world and to be mentioned with such companies as Apple, Herman Miller, and BMW really is a testament to our entire Skyline team.”
