Each year, The Coalition of Visionary Resources—a non-profit organization that exists to support independent retailers, manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, and publishers of visionary products—selects winners from the best new items in the New Age industry. For the twelfth consecutive year, COVR’s Visionary Awards were presented at the International New Age Trade Show banquet on June 27th, 2009, in Denver, Colorado.
The Visionary Awards were administered by Susie Hare, executive director of KJ Expositions in Denver, Colorado. They were judged by retailers and seasoned professionals who evaluated each product based upon content, presentation, and their own knowledge of the industry.
