AND THE WINNER IS…
Published: Monday, April 28, 2008
All of us here at SVI offer our hearty congratulations to the winners of the SVI Awards 2008!

For five-years we’ve taken great pride in being able to celebrate the achievements of our industry, and have dedicated ourselves to filling each issue with a wealth of innovations, thoughts, ideas and successes. This year, we decided that wasn’t enough – we wanted to offer more, and so set about thinking up a way to acknowledge some truly inspirational products, to congratulate our hard-working colleagues and, most of all, to give out our stamp of approval to those who have earned it. Finally, after days of racking our brains, we came up with the perfect solution and the SVI Awards were born…

Okay, it was more like an hour or two of brain racking within an SVI staff meeting, but the point is that for the past four-months we have been gathering your votes for the products that you, as industry professionals, have chosen as the most deserving of praise and our highly-distinguished awards sticker. We would like to once again thank everyone for voting, and with great pleasure announce the winners of the SVI Awards 2008!
