In the 11th edition of the prestigious award, sixty winners were announced and honoured.
Following the International Press Conference of Computex 2018, the winners of the d&i awards 2018 were honoured at the event. Computex 2018 officially kicked off today and what better way to end the first press event than celebrating the winners of the d&i award. All the products released in the previous year are judged by a panel of six experts. However, in order to qualify, one has to meet high standards of design and innovation in their products.
