Today during CES® Unveiled New York, the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)® announced the CES 2023 Innovation Awards honorees, including those recognized as Best of Innovation honorees. The CES Innovation Awards is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology products across 28 product categories. The CES 2023 Innovation Awards program received a record-high number of over 2100 submissions.

An independent panel of industry expert judges, including members of the media, designers, engineers, and more, reviewed submissions based on innovation and functionality, aesthetic, and design. Those rating the highest across each category receive the "Best of Innovation” designation.

The announcement was made ahead of CES 2023, the world’s most influential technology event. Many honorees will showcase their product in the Innovation Awards Showcase at CES, located in the Venetian Expo. Last month, CTA announced Innovation Awards honorees during CES Unveiled events in Paris and Amsterdam, including 28 products from France and 12 from the Netherlands.
