The award ceremony will take place at the 48th annual ACPN Knowledge Exchange Conference on May 2-5, 2021, in Orlando, Florida, at the Hyatt Regency Orlando as part of the inaugural Auto Care Connect event.

The Content Excellence Awards recognize the best examples of electronic content and cataloging in the auto care industry.

The Content Excellence Awards are comprised of four categories:

  • ACES and PIES Data – Recognizes excellent source data and adherence to XSD validations.
  • CCPN Installer’s Choice – Recognizes excellent business-to-business systems that are either web-based or client-side install (app) supported, which support business transactions.
  • Receiver’s Choice – Industry-leading data receivers recognize organizations that are supplying high-quality content including ACES, PIES, digital assets and other customer specific formats.

Interested participants and their companies must register for and be present at the 2021 ACPN Knowledge Exchange Conference to be considered for the awards. To be considered for the Receiver’s Choice awards, contact your data receiver(s) to see if they are participating in this year’s Receiver’s Choice awards and what their criteria are.

The deadline to submit for the Web-Based Catalog, ACES and PIES Data and CCPN Installer’s Choice award categories is Jan. 25, 2021. For more information about the ACPN Content Excellence Awards and to access award entry forms, click here.
