26th annual Automotive News PACE Awards, celebrating innovation excellence among automotive suppliers.
Attention traditional and non-traditional global suppliers:
If you’ve developed a product, process, software/IT system or new material that has revolutionized an automaker’s business, get the recognition you deserve.
Apply today and have your innovation rigorously evaluated by an independent panel of judges.
Entries must be innovations that have been commercialized by a sale to an OEM.
Finalists will be announced at the SAE Global Leadership Conference on October 11. Judges will conduct a site visit with each finalist to review the technology, performance metrics, market impact, barriers surmounted, cost structure and commercial aspects of the innovation.
Establish your organization as one that nurtures a culture of innovation. Gather valuable feedback and raise your visibility among the global automotive community.
The deadline for applications is September 6, 2019.
“Innovation teams are redefining automotive/mobility products and services at an accelerated rate in every global market. The entire span of the customer value chain is under pressure in pursuit of ways to increase or alter value creation, “ according to J Ferron, PACE Director of Judging. “This means that over the past quarter century the PACE Awards have become a lens into the future, giving PACE finalist and winners the recognition their companies need to stand out in a shifting competitive landscape of traditional and non-traditional suppliers.”
NEW FOR 2020: Are you involved in a game-changing innovation that has not yet been commercialized? Pre-register for the new Automotive News PACEpilot Program, designed for those who are shifting the rules and shaping the future.
