Carol Stream, Ill.—June 15, 2011—What can M2M technology and connected devices do for you? Ask the 2011 Value Chain Awards winners. This evening, Connected World magazine named the 2011 winners of this prestigious award.

The Value Chain Awards Gala is a formal event held during the annual Connected World Conference. Held this year at the Lincolnshire Marriott Resort, the Connected World Conference brought together the M2M and connected devices community, from business professionals to techies, and everyone in between. Attendees heard from the four major U.S. carriers, and witnessed the unveiling of Connected World magazine’s newest report, The Coming Age of M2M and Connected Devices, among many other highlights.

Conference-goers then gathered to recognize this year’s most successful adopters at the Value Chain Awards Gala.

The Connected World magazine Value Chain Awards honor the most successful corporate adopters of M2M technology and connected devices, as well as the solution providers that make their success possible.

“Between the outstanding Value Chain Awards winners for 2011, and the incredible content at the Connected World Conference this year, we are completely surrounded by innovation that many would not have believed possible just a few years ago,” says Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Connected World magazine. “What an exciting time to be a part of this industry.”
