2017 Visionary Spotlight Award Winners: A Showcase for Innovation

Beka Business Media and ChannelVision Magazine have announced the winners of the 2017 Visionary Spotlight Awards.

The Visionary Spotlight Awards competition was created to highlight both channel and service provider innovation in communications. The awards honor outstanding products, services and deployments across technology categories.

The winners of the 2017 Visionary Spotlight Awards exemplify this goal, showcasing the communications industry’s overall innovation, capacity for future-thinking execution, and creativity and feature set differentiation; and offering channel partners a cornucopia of opportunities to boost their roles as trusted providers and business success.

“We couldn’t be more delighted to honor the top innovators and industry visionaries in the channel and communications space,” said Berge Kaprelian, president of Beka Business Media. “The caliber of the 2017 nominations was so high that in some categories there was more than one winner—which highlights the rapid acceleration of meaningful, cutting-edge deployments and product/service design and engineering across our industry today. We congratulate all of the winners.”
