Ontario-based EMAGIN was selected as the winner in the Best Market Strategy award category at the BlueTech Forum, which took place in Vancouver, British Columbia from June 6–7.

The BlueTech Forum is a “boutique industry event which brings together the world’s leading water technology companies, entrepreneurs, investors, and executives from leading research centres to network and hear cutting-edge presentations on market trends and insights.”

The fourteen companies participating in the Innovation Showcase presented their value propositions and case studies to a panel of judges.

EMAGIN secured the title of best market strategy out of all participants. Individual companies that pitched in the Innovation Showcase were nominated by members of the Technological Assessment Group (TAG), then voted for. The two award categories were Market Readiness and Most Innovative Technology.
