Congratulations to 2018’s ARCHIBUS User Award Winners!

Recognizing Exceptional Achievements in the ARCHIBUS Community

One of our favorite moments at ARCHIBUS Nexus every year is when we present the ARCHIBUS Awards of Excellence. These awards recognize the amazing vision, talent, and effort in our user community – special users making a positive impact with ARCHIBUS technology.

Of course, these winners are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to ARCHIBUS users doing great work, as each year, people nominate so many unsung heroes that have flown under the radar.

The award winners whom we will be recognizing this year, however, are more than deserving of their respective honors, and it is our pleasure and privilege to share with you the exceptional nature of their achievements.

Without further ado, here are this year’s winners.
