The new Mobile Innovations Awards were created to pay tribute to those pushing the boundaries of what is possible using a mobile device. They honoured the achievements that are driving businesses and commercial value, which resulted in an interesting mix of existing well known names and entirely new ones.

"With hilarious comedian Patrick Monahan getting a hug with every single winner, the awards had a fantastic party spirit which made it great fun for everyone," said Annich McIntosh, director of The Mobile Innovations Awards, who was proudly wearing a Google Glass to make her welcome speech. "The list of finalists was truly outstanding, and the judges had a tough job deciding the winners. We were delighted with the first event. There were some very worthy winners, and a lot of networking was going on."

Kelley Knutson, vice president, international services for TSYS, the awards prime sponsor paid tribute to the finalists by commenting: "Tonight’s finalists are among the brightest examples of next-generation innovators across the market … they’ve moved beyond the 'norm' and have been expanding boundaries with their spirit of creativity, risk taking and high customer touch. This type of innovative thinking has led to some of the world’s greatest technology, and consumer proposition breakthroughs, that have enhanced how we live, and work, every day.”

Matthew Davies, co-director of the Awards, found the process of discovery when reading through entries "entirely exhilarating. Some great work suddenly revealed itself from unexpected companies and concepts." He believes that the new Awards now occupy the innovation space for mobile and will see up to a threefold increase in entries for 2015"
