MACH Impact Awards 2023
The annual MACH Impact Awards occurred during MACH TWO in Amsterdam. This is the second year the Alliance has hosted the awards program. Almost 150 entries were submitted with a significant increase in submissions for non-commerce categories showing that MACH is moving more and more beyond retail.
Open to any business across the globe, the MACH Impact Awards aim to raise awareness of the difference MACH-led projects are making in solving complex technical problems and creating measurable business value. Nominations were evaluated by a panel of 17 independent judges including MACH practitioners, industry analysts and journalists. Each award was judged on the project outcomes using MACH technologies to achieve or exceed objectives.
