- Fourth Industrial Revolution: This award category will distinguish key companies at the forefront of the digital shift, across seven market verticals. Highlights include a new award for “Best Mobile Innovation for Enterprise”, as well as the “Smart City Award (The Judges’ Choice)”, which will recognise the city authority that has raised the bar and embraced the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
- Device: This category has a strong reputation for recognising market leaders and celebrates achievements in hardware developments that are stimulating advances across the globe. For 2018, there will be a focus on new technologies that change how consumers interact with devices.
