Acuity Brands, the Atlanta-based lighting company, was voted “Best at Show” at the 2012 IMARK Showcase Conference recently, the second year in a row Acuity Brands has won the AAA large-volume suppliers category at the annual distributor showcase. Award winners were selected by IMARK's 337 IMARK member companies that attended the Showcase meeting.

“IMARK member attendees were asked to select companies in each size category that exhibit best-in-class performance based upon the following criteria: effective display and explanation, new product presence in booth, enthusiasm and effectiveness of booth space, and enthusiasm for company products demonstrated by supplier personnel,” said Brian Whitmire, Acuity Brands Lighting's director of strategic accounts, who is responsible for the company's Imark relations. “We are honored to have successfully met all four requirements for the second year in a row.”
