Last year I had the opportunity to attend a Product of the Year press preview which allowed me to sample and evaluate the newest products across a wide variety of categories to determine which products should advance into the final consumer research phase.
Those top secret products (which I had a chance to vote in) were then entered in the running to receive the 2016 Product of the Year Award in February.
The winners were then announced at the 2016 Product of the Year Awards Ceremony at the Edison Ballroom in New York City hosted by “Saturday Night Live” alum Rachel Dratch and NBC “30 Rock” comedian Scott Adsit, with red carpet interviews conducted by Cat Greenleaf, host of NBC’s “Talk Stoop”..
