TWICE Picks Awards Honor The Best Of CES

LAS VEGAS, NV (January 10, 2017) — TWICE, the authority in CE news and analysis, is proud to announce the winners of its third annual TWICE Picks Awards, honoring the best products at CES 2017. TWICE editors reviewed over 170 entrants, the most in its history, and chose winners based on the impact they’re expected to have at retail and the marketplace.

“The TWICE Picks Awards are the answer for anyone who wants to know about the most exciting, game-changing products at CES 2017,” says Ed Hecht, TWICE publisher/VP. “Our winners are chosen using deep perspective by some of the most experienced editors in the business. Each of the winning products demonstrated rich innovation and is expected to positively disrupt the tech market. We offer congratulations to the winners and all the nominees —standing out above the crowd at CES is an accomplishment in itself.”

New for this year is the Super Pick Award, given to the company that received the most wining entries. LG was the recipient of the first Super Pick Award, for its impressive seven winning entries.

“CES is the launchpad for 2017 LG OLED and LG Super UHD TVs, smart connected appliances and more,” says Dave VanderWaal, marketing VP, LG Electronics USA. “TWICE’s recognition of cutting-edge technologies like the W7 ‘wallpaper’ OLED series and LG SIGNATURE washer dryer combo and others underscores LG’s industry leadership. We are especially honored to be the 2017 CES Super Pick award winner.”

TWICE will present more details on the winners and nominees throughout the month of January on TWICE.com and in its daily newsletters, as well as in its January 30 issue and special TWICE Picks Awards digital edition.

“On behalf of my colleagues at TWICE, I congratulate the winners of this year’s TWICE Picks Awards,” says John Laposky, TWICE editor in chief. “The competition was fierce, but we are confident that these winning products will help shape the future of the CE marketplace and provide a positive impact for retailers.”
