After discussing the technological innovations, seeing them live, feeling them with their hands and listening to the opinions of TOPO CENTRAS experts, the jury members evaluated each device, appliance or innovation participating in the awards on a 10-point system, based on its functionality, ease of use, sustainability, innovativeness, design, and its potential to become a very popular product. In fact, several of the jury members attended the Tech Top breakfast virtually and arrived later to see the devices and innovations. It is important to note that the jury's votes represent only half of the total nomination score. The remaining half of the votes in the Tech Top 2022 Awards are determined by the votes of the people, so everyone can still vote and win a TV set by voting in TOPO CENTRAS stores or on the Tech Top voting websites delfi.lt or topocentras.lt until 23 October.
