Lift and Access magazine is now seeking entries for its 2021 LLEAP Awards program.
The Leadership in Lifting Equipment and Aerial Platforms (LLEAP) Awards normally recognize innovative equipment, support products, and services introduced during the previous 12 months. But since COVID-19 cancelled the 2020 LLEAP competition, this year, the competition is open to products introduced during the past 24 months.
The 2021 awards will recognize products that have been introduced into the North American market between June 1, 2019, and May 31, 2021, and are currently available in North America. Here’s what you need to know to enter.
Eligible products and services:
LLEAP Entry Categories
In 2019, Lift and Access updated some of the LLEAP product categories to better reflect the market it serves. Please review the information below carefully. Some categories have changed.
The LLEAP judging panel is made up of industry experts involved in the operation, rental, sale, and servicing of aerial platforms and lifting equipment. In evaluating each entry, the judges look for innovative features and technology; perceived value; productivity for owners and users; and overall benefit to the industry, owners, and users.
In each of the five product categories, the top-scoring entry receives a Gold Award, and the second-highest-scoring entry receives a Silver Award.
The Gold and Silver Award winners will be recognized in the November-December 2021 issue of Lift and Access magazine and will receive a glass trophy. In addition, all LLEAP Award finalist products will be listed in Lift and Access, and in an e-book dedicated to the competition’s top products.
