ABOUT THE CONNIE AWARD
The Connie Award, founded by CII in 1972, has become the most prestigious honor in the global containerization and intermodal industry. It is awarded annually to people, companies, associations and other entities that have made significant contributions to the transportation modes. The Connies—named for the container--are presented at the Connie dinner in Long Beach, California, every September and at the New York-area Connie luncheon each December. The award recipients are selected from a roster of nominees and honored at gala events whose proceeds benefit academic scholarships awarded to those who are perceived as the next generation of industry leaders. the wide support gives each event the feeling of a class reunion.
