How to Earn Kudos for Outstanding Work

Everyone likes to hear “job well done.”

For the past 20 years, we’ve said that to our customers through the Golden Valve, Platinum Pipe and Drivers of Success Awards. Those contests focused on clients using our engineering and 3D visualization software, and they have generated some truly mind-blowing images and animations.

While Hexagon’s PPM division continues to be the market leader in these arenas, we’ve evolved in recent years to be so much more. We’ve broadened from a primarily engineering software company to a solutions provider that helps create smart digital assets through the visualization, construction and management of structures and facilities throughout the industrial lifecycle.

What that means in the context of offering accolades to our most innovative customers is that we needed to expand our awards. And we have.

We’ve retired those legacy competitions; for 2021 and beyond, we are offering the Hexagon Elite Awards, which now encompass categories for all of our customers, featuring six unique categories:

  • Best in Design
  • Best in Automation
  • Best in Analysis
  • Best in Operations
  • Best in Project Performance
  • Best in Procurement, Fabrication & Construction Management

The inaugural Hexagon Elite Awards will be presented during the HxGN LIVE Global 2021 digital solutions conference in Las Vegas, Nev., from June 15-18. We are now accepting submissions here, and the deadline is April 1.

The winning entry for each of the six categories will receive a monetary award and complimentary HxGN LIVE registration. Winners’ work will also be highlighted on and our digital magazine, Insight.

You work hard designing, building, operating and maintaining your facilities. Why not get recognized for it?
