Modest Tree Wins Bronze Stevie® Award in 2020 International Business Awards®

Canada - September 22, 2020 - Modest Tree, a global software development company specializing in immersive technology solutions for manufacturers, defense leaders, and defense contractors, has been named the winner of a Bronze Stevie® Award in the Company of the Year, Aerospace and Defense, Small Business category of The 17th Annual International Business Awards®.

The International Business Awards are the world’s premier business awards program. All individuals and organizations worldwide – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small - are eligible to submit nominations. The 2020 IBAs received entries from organizations in 63 nations and territories.

Selected out of more than 3,800 nominations, Modest Tree was recognized for its high level of achievement during the past year, as well as for its contribution to corporate efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic. The selection was made following more than two months of judging by 250 executives on 13 global juries.

“Utilizing immersive technologies for operational processes and training programs has become top of mind for manufacturers looking to optimize their remote operations," says Sam Sannandeji, CEO, Modest Tree. "Modest Tree is honoured to be recognized alongside so many distinguished companies for our performance and achievements this past year, and it is a pleasure to be able to present this award to our entire team in recognition of their efforts and dedication in producing immersive solutions to help our clients employ immersive technologies in their sales, operations, and training programs.”

“Modest Tree's award winning technical products, such as Xplorer,” quotes one judge, “are used globally by original equipment manufacturers and military leaders to rapidly build and deploy interactive content in a 3D virtual environment, even in the times of Covid-19.” Stevie® Awards judges also praised Modest Tree for its “Absolutely impressive accomplishments!” and for an “innovative portfolio [that] sets it apart from its competitors.”

“Despite the unprecedented impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on organizations and working people worldwide, the number and quality of nominations we received in this year’s International Business Awards attests to the continued outstanding performance of many organizations. The commitment we’ve seen through these nominations to maintaining the success, health, and safety of employees, customers, and communities is truly impressive,” said Stevie Awards president Maggie Gallagher.

Because the ongoing COVID-19 crisis will prevent winners from receiving their awards on stage during a traditional gala IBA banquet, winners will be celebrated instead during a virtual ceremony on Tuesday, 1 December.

As a Company of the Year award recipient, Modest Tree is now in the running for the People’s Choice Stevie® Award. You can show your support by voting at:

Voting will conclude at 11:59 pm ET on Friday, October 09.
