ATLANTA, GA, June 26, 2008 -- The American Water Works Association (AWWA) recently recognized Neptune Technology Group Inc. for its innovative exhibit design at the Association's yearly international trade show, the 2008 Annual Conference & Exposition in Atlanta, Georgia.

Neptune, a manufacturer of end-to-end Automatic Meter Reading and Billing systems based in Tallassee, Alabama, joined 568 other companies at the conference. The company was one of 92 in the large booth category -- and one of only three in that category to take home a Best of Show award.

Neptune received the Bronze Award in the large booth category in the Annual Best of Show by the Manufacturers/Associates Council sponsored by AWWA. Neptune was the only utility management systems company so honored.

Ronald Port, chair of the Manufacturers/Associates Council, said, "[Neptune's] booth was recognized for its impressive creativity, showmanship, educational value and clear product messaging in booth design."

Designed by identity management firm Copperwing Design, headquartered in Montgomery, Alabama, the exhibit serves as an introduction to Neptune's new ARB® Utility Management Systems™. The exhibit features four satellite plasma screen presentations detailing the company's ARB® Mobile, ARB® FixedBase and ARB® Hybrid systems, as well as Neptune's revenue management tools.

The exhibit space is anchored by a central tower, topped by a revolving, elliptical Neptune logo. Near the base of the tower is a large screen that plays a video hosted by Neptune President and CEO Charles DiLaura. The high-definition video officially unveiled the full suite of Mobile, FixedBase and Hybrid ARB Utility Management Systems at AWWA ACE08.

Kent Murray, Vice President Marketing for Neptune, said, "This has been a big year for us. Before the conference, we knew that two of our products, the AMR Permalog® and R900® WiFi Gateway, were spotlighted in the ACE08 New Technology Showcase.

"But the exhibit award was unexpected icing on the cake. It's a great honor to be recognized at an international level. The AWWA conference is one of the biggest events in the industry, and we wanted to ensure we had a good showing. It's gratifying to know all our marketing efforts were rewarded."
