Revamped 2021 Hexagon Elite Awards to Recognize Most Innovative Uses of Company Software

12 November 2020

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Hexagon’s PPM division, the leading global provider of engineering software for the design, construction and operation of plants, ships and offshore facilities, is pleased to announce that its annual customer competition has been rebranded as the Hexagon Elite Awards. The inaugural Hexagon Elite Awards will be presented during HxGN LIVE Global 2021, its digital solutions conference, in Las Vegas, Nev., from June 15-18.

For nearly two decades, Hexagon has presented customers with the annual Golden Valve, Platinum Pipe and Drivers of Success awards to recognize their creative uses of engineering and design software supported by Hexagon solutions. To broaden the scope of submissions and encourage customers across all segments to participate, the previous awards have been retired, and the Hexagon Elite awards will feature 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

Hexagon is accepting submissions for the 2021 Hexagon Elite Awards beginning today. Hexagon software users can visit to submit their entry for the 2021 competition.

With one overall winner for each category being recognized at HxGN LIVE Global 2021, the revamped annual awards will truly recognize the most elite customers who are champions of innovation and progress using Hexagon solutions.

The winning entry for each of the six categories receive a monetary award for their submission (or elect to have a charitable donation made in their name), complimentary HxGN Live attendance and an award that will be presented at the Hexagon PPM awards presentation in Las Vegas next year. Winners’ work also will be recognized on the division’s website and in the digital version of PPM’s Insight magazine.

David Cryer, Senior Vice President & Chief Marketing Officer, Hexagon’s PPM division, said, “We are pleased to have such a vibrant and competitive user community and very excited about these changes to our customer awards. The Hexagon Elite Awards will shine a spotlight on the countless innovative ways that Hexagon customers are using our solutions portfolio to achieve spectacular results for their companies.”

HxGN LIVE Global introduces a new format in 2021 – a collection of individual summits offering attendees unique content experiences to discover and learn about innovative technologies and proven customer solutions driving our autonomous future forward. This format will also serve as a platform for thought-leadership discussions and a springboard for building customer communities around each summit topic through networking, engagement and relationship-building.

Registration will officially open later this year, but anyone interested in reserving an in-person spot now may do so by pre-registering (free) at
