New Product Showcase “Best of Category” and “Best of Show” Award Winners
Garmin and its Force™ Trolling Motor won “Best of Show” in the ICAST 2019 New Product Showcase. Garmin also took top honors in the Boating Accessories category. The award was presented at 2:00 p.m., Thursday, July 11, in the New Product Showcase at the Orange County Convention Center.

Winners were selected by credentialed buyers and media from around the world who vote for the best of the new product entries.

The 29 “Best of Category” awards were presented during the Wednesday night New Product Showcase Awards Reception, sponsored by SiOnyx.

For ICAST 2019, 1,004 new products were entered by 303 companies. Reflecting trends in sportfishing retail, four new categories were added this year: Ice Fishing; Cold and Warm Weather Technical Apparel; Coolers and Bait/Storage; and Cutlery, Hand Pliers or Tools.

This year’s New Product Showcase was sponsored by Fishing Tackle Retailer/Decode.

“Our congratulations go to all of this year’s New Product Showcase winners as well as to the 303 companies who submitted more than 1,000 new products,” said Trade Show and Membership Vice President Blake Swango. “They embody the ingenuity and innovative spirit that exists within our industry. Those products are representative of the thousands of other new products that were found across the show floor.”
