Best in ShowRoberts Filter Group Wins Best in Show Award at ACE ’14 Tradeshow

Largest Family-Owned Filtration Company in U.S. Wins Silver for Design of its Tradeshow Exhibit.

Media, Pa., USA – Roberts Filter Group, a century-old, family-owned business that provides value-driven water filtration solutions and products to water plants across five continents, is proud to announce that its exhibit won a Best in Show award at the American Water Works Association’s 2014 Annual Conference & Exposition.

Roberts received the silver award in the medium booth category after being judged on several categories: originality, messaging, prominent company name and variety of style, color, shapes and educational material. A panel of 15 judges chose the winners from a field of hundreds of competing booths at the massive industry event held in the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center from June 8 to June 11.

The company’s booth this year unveiled Roberts’ Value To Operations™ model, demonstrating how the firm combines the most advanced water treatment innovations with its time-tested, family-run tradition of service that the industry has always counted on. It also featured a miniature golf course that integrated miniature versions of Roberts’ water filtration products, a fun way for attendees to learn about the firm’s innovative solutions. The booth attracted several hundred attendees over four days.

“We designed our exhibit this year in a way similar to how we design our products – with an intimate knowledge of what our industry wants and needs, we’re always searching for new ways to meet those demands better,” said Matt Roberts, vice president of sales and marketing for Roberts Filter Group. “While the interactive elements were lighthearted and fun, they served to start great conversations about how we can continue to solve the water filtration industry’s challenges.”

The golf course featured several of Roberts’ most popular and innovative products – the Infinity® jointless underdrain, the Microwedge® sludge dewatering system, the Aries™ air scour system, the Slyder™ hoseless sludge withdrawal system, the Plate Settlers sedimentation basin solution and the Pacer II® package water treatment plant.

Roberts will be recognized for their winning exhibit in the August issue of the AWWA’s Journal and in the final report on the ACE14 tradeshow, which is also due to be released in August.
