Why You Should Submit Your Free Innovation Award Nomination
March is a special month here at Aragon Research, because it’s the last month of 2021 that you’ll have the chance to submit an award nomination for an Aragon Research Innovation Award. Submissions close on March 31st, so there’s no better time than the present to make sure your organization is on our radar.
The Aragon Research Innovation Award recognizes providers who have a best-in-class technology or service that differentiates them in their respective market. In this blog, we’ll dive into 5 key reasons why you should consider nominating your company for this award.
Reason 1: It’s Easy—And Free!— To Submit an Innovation Award Nomination
Submitting your nomination form is a win-win situation. It’s a simple, one-page form that our analyst team will use to get to know your organization better and evaluate them amongst the other nominees. There is no cost to nominate—just like there is no cost to participate in any of our research. We conduct all of our research independently and objectively. So really, what do you have to lose?
Pro Tip: You can also brief our analysts on your products/services to introduce us to your organization and what you’re doing in the market.
Reason 2: You Can Attend The Awards Ceremony From Anywhere
Since the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve taken our entire awards ceremony—aka Aragon Transform— online, which means you can stream it from anywhere you’d like! This has also allowed our winners to accept their award from wherever they are—something that wasn’t possible pre-COVID.
Stay tuned for more info on Aragon Transform, but for now, save the date of December 2nd!
Reason 3: Winners Receive A Prestigious Glass Award
All Innovation Award winners receive their own glass award that is a beautiful addition to your home office to show off in online meetings, or at your headquarters, to showcase to your employees, partners, and customers. Your award will be shipped to you via mail in advance of the awards ceremony.
Reason 4: Great Press Opportunity
As an Innovation Award winner, you will get to accept your award virtually to a worldwide audience of hundreds, and you’ll have the opportunity to tell your brand story and what you’re doing that’s innovative. Afterwards, we’ll announce all Innovation Award winners in a formal press release and promote the announcement on our website and social channels. This is a great way to showcase what your organization has accomplished over the past year.
You’ll also have the chance to leverage your award for your own press strategy, including issuing a press release on the news, writing a blog, and/or promoting it online.
Reason 5: You’re In Great Company
Past winners of the Innovation Awards have included organizations like Avaya, Five9, Google, HelloSign, IBM, Inkling, Nintex, Nuxeo, RingCentral, Seismic, Zoom, and so many more. Your name will be added to the Hall of Fame—companies going above and beyond to shape the future of technology as we know it, and help their customers succeed.
There are so many great benefits of submitting an award nomination this year. No barrier to entry and a great press opportunity are just a couple of the benefits . We hope to see your name on our list of submissions this year! Get yours in before the window of opportunity closes on March 31st, 2021.
Plus, no matter the outcome, you'll be able to join Aragon Transform from wherever you may be in the world. Last year, our event was chock full of expert guest panels, analyst sessions, and even an exclusive happy hour with limited spots. We can't wait for this year's event on December 2nd, 2021! Stay tuned for more info soon.
