Finalists picked in GCN Best Technology Awards at FOSE

Finalists picked in GCN Best Technology Awards at FOSE

BY JOHN BREEDEN II | GCN STAFF

More than 200 exhibitors competed for the GCN Best New Technology Awards at FOSE. The winners will be announced on the opening day, March 20, at the Washington Convention Center.

A panel of 12 GCN editors judged the entries, evaluating each product for its innovation, value and importance to the federal market.

The double-blind judging narrowed the multitude of entries to a group of finalists, from which the overall winner was chosen.

The GCN Lab staff extensively tested the finalist products and produced several videos about them.
FOSE for the first time this year will stream the videos to the Web, as well as show them at the Convention Center. Tune in to foselive.tvworldwide.com to catch the show.
