The votes are in, and winners selected for the 2012 Most Innovative Products (MIP) Award program.
Held annually at Hanley Wood’s World of Concrete, the MIP Award program showcases many of the new products exhibited. The MIP program allows attendees and readers of Concrete Construction, Masonry Construction, The Concrete Producer, and Concrete Construction Products a chance to vote for the products they judge as innovative. A panel of industry experts, many of whom serve on the World of Concrete Educational Advisory Board, reviewed and selected MIP Award winners. The editors of Concrete Construction, Masonry Construction, and The Concrete Producer reviewed and selected the products based on the innovation they bring to the industry.
This year’s products were grouped into nine categories. Information about each entry is available online at www.votemip.com.
