This year, for the first time, The American Business Awards were presented at two awards events: the  traditional awards banquet in New York in June, and at a new tech and product awards event lthis week in San Francisco. 

More than 3,000 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Most Innovative Company of the Year, Management Team of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year, and Executive of the Year, among others. Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 270 executives nationwide who participated in the judging process this year.

“We’re delighted to recognize so many innovative companies, new products, technical achievements, and technology executives in the ABA’s new product and tech awards categories,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.  “It’s gratifying and inspiring to have received so many remarkable entries for this year’s competition.  We look forward to staging this event in San Francisco for years to come.”
