InnoVision Awards, established in 1999, is South Carolina’s premier organization dedicated to the advancement of innovation and technology.  InnoVision is the only program of its kind – a grass-roots, volunteer-led non-profit organization made up of businesses, organizations, universities, and individuals dedicated to finding innovation and technology in products, services, and education from across the state, and recognizing and honoring peers for achievements in their respective fields.  InnoVision Awards are the mark of distinction for outstanding leadership, innovation, and technological excellence.

The InnoVision Board maintains commitment to support, honor, and celebrate technology and innovation through two primary activities – conferring the annual InnoVision Awards in late Fall, and providing educational InnoVision Forums throughout the year.

InnoVision Awards Ceremony

We’ve met the finalists….now let’s Meet the Winners! Mark your calendars for Tuesday, November 17th, 3:30-5:00 for our final InnoVision Awards Celebration, sponsored by Contec, Inc.  After a record-breaking number of entries, a rigorous judging process, and four weeks of Meet the Finalists virtual receptions, we are ready to reveal the winners.  The registration link will be available soon.


The InnoVision finalists represent a wide assortment of fascinating innovations.  From new products and processes, to new research programs and services.  Most of these innovations have been under development for some time, but others were developed in response to the pandemic. Most importantly, they show us just how creative and hard-working our fellow South Carolinians can be.

Innovation is alive and well in South Carolina!  Join us on the 17th to help celebrate it.
