Announcing The Winners Of The 2023 TWICE VIP Awards!

LG and Samsung tied to take home the Super VIP Award with 5 wins each

I would like to extend our congratulations to this year’s winners of the TWICE VIP Awards!

This year saw a wide range of product entries ranging from smart door lock, outdoor TVs, aging-in-place tech to the latest TVs and major appliances. The response to the 10th Annual TWICE VIP Awards was amazing, with over 70 entries across 40 categories to vote on.

One of the things that make the TWICE VIP Awards so unique is that it isn’t a public vote by people who know nothing about the submissions or the industry. No, the awards are voted on by you, the industry leaders, consumer tech retailers and distributors who know greatness, innovation and what makes the biggest difference in the business. Earning the respect of your peers is a hard-won accomplishment, especially in our industry, and I am proud to be a part of the 2023 TWICE VIP Awards.

I want to offer my congratulations to each of the winners, with a special congratulations to LG and Samsung, who tied to take home the Super VIP Award with 5 wins each!
