Kapi awards have been continuing this tradition for over 12 years now. Each year they bring to light different innovative products in children’s technology which raise the bar for excellence and innovation during a 12 month review time. Presenting awards to some of the most deserving people, companies and products in the kids’ tech industry, organizers Robin Raskin, Warren Buckleitner, and Tonda Bunge Sellers coordinate annual events that provide face to face forums for decision-makers to touch base on which products, people, and companies should be honored for raising the bar of excellence for innovation for kid’s tech.
This year, the awards were evaluated by an independent jury of industry and editorial experts. It was under the direction of Warren Buckleitner, Editor of Children’s Technology Review, who looked for products that raised the bar for innovation and design excellence. The companies which have won will hold presentations on Thursday, January 9 at 4:30 pm at Kids and Family Stage at the Venetian. You will get a chance to interact with their amazing products there.
