The new Force trolling motor from Garmin has been named “Best of Show” in the ICAST 2019 New Product Showcase.
The Force was selected from the 29 “Best of Category” winners announced Wednesday night during the New Product Showcase “Best of Category” Awards Reception. Garmin took top honors in the Boating Accessories category.
The “Best of Show” and “Best of Category” winners were selected by credentialed buyers and media from around the world who vote in the New Product Showcase. ICAST 2019 drew a record 1,004 entries entered by 303 companies.
“My congratulations go to Garmin,” said ASA President Glenn Hughes. “Taking top honors at ICAST has a significant impact on every company that wins.”
Hughes further said, “I also want to thank everyone who participated in the New Product Showcase. The record number of products submitted this year really ratcheted up the competition as well as the visibility for all these new products. The high level of innovation is good for our industry and benefits the anglers and outdoors enthusiasts who buy and use them.
“Although we had more than a thousand entries, this is just a small fraction of the thousands of other innovations that can be found all across the vast show floor.”
All New Product Showcase entries are available for viewing on the ICAST website and on the ICAST app available for Apple and Android devices.
