NMEA LogoTen manufacturers took home awards across 17 categories in the annual National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) Product of Excellence Awards. The plaques were presented at the combined NMEA and RTCM (Radio Technical Commission for Maritime Services) Marine Electronics Conference & Expo, held Sept. 25-28 at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. Also presented were the Manufacturer of the Year for support of their products in the field, and the annual NMEA Technology Award. More than 400 marine electronics manufacturers, dealers, distributors, standards developers, Coast Guard officials and others from the US and abroad attended the four-day Conference & Expo.

NMEA members selected the Product of Excellence Award winners through an online voting process and at the Conference & Expo. "On behalf of the NMEA Board of Directors, staff and membership body, we congratulate all 2018 award winners," said Mark Reedenauer, NMEA President & Executive Director. "We saw a 25% increase in vetted votes this year, which means more members are engaging and taking part in their industry. The Awards Committee will continually improve the awards categories and our voting and vetting process as the industry evolves and we get feedback from the membership."
