Annual Celebration


Celebrating Technology and Innovation

In April of 2007, OTT held its first Annual Celebration of Technology and Innovation at the Emory Conference Center. At its inaugural award ceremony, Dennis Liotta, Raymond Schinazi, Wayne Alexander, and Ernest Garacia received awards for their innovative technologies that have reached the market place and improved the outcomes for countless patients.

The celebration is held in the spring of each year. Unfortunately, during the pandemic the in-person event was canceled for two consecutive years. In spring of 2022 the event was held in-person again. The celebration has evolved and now consists of seven awards.

  • Innovation of the Year
  • Deal of the Year
  • Start-up of the Year
  • Significant Event of the Year
  • Corporate Partnership of the Year
  • EmpowerHER Award
  • IDEAward (Inclusivity, Diversity, and Equity)
