This year's Most Innovative Products (MIP) contest at World of Concrete, Jan. 22-25 in Las Vegas, includes many examples of creatively innovative materials and equipment. These products run the gamut from big to small, from high-tech to low-tech, and from high-priced to low-priced.
But they all have two things in common. First, they represent new ways to meet construction challenges. Second, all of the companies who have entered them in the contest hope you'll help decide which ones are this year's most innovative.
To help you navigate the entries, the products are categorized by primary application: construction supplies, decorative, demolition and repair, equipment, and placing and finishing.
