Stockholm, Sweden

Steve Ham, Suprema, Fredrik Thor, Axis and Yngve Wold from Idteq received the first prizes when the Detektor International Award Ceremony was held on wednesday night.

Over 750 dinner guests attended at the prize cermony when the Detektor International Award dinner was held in conjunction with the second day of SKYDD 2010 on the 15th of September. The twelve awarded finalist products were chosen on the basis of both innovation and customer orientation. Winning products need to be smart as well as useful, as Lennart Alexandrie, the publisher of the security technology magazine Detektor, explained previously during a presentation. Two Scandinavian and one Korean manufacturer received the top awards.
The criteria to be nominated for a Detektor International Award encompasses not only the technical solution but also the packaging and over all presentation of the product, which actually could just as well be a service.
"The Detektor International Awards should be viewed as a focus on continual technical development, but just as importantly they should encompass the continual progress of demands for more sophisticated packaging qualities, where the presentation of the whole concept becomes increasingly more of a priority to successfully reach the customer", Lennart Alexandrie said.

It was the 11th annual Detektor International Award prize ceremony, this time held at the International Stockholm Fair in Sweden, Lennart Alexandrie, CEO for AR Media International, the publishing company behind Detektor magazine, was the master of ceremonies.
