Last week at the IGeLU conference, which took place in beautiful Saint Petersburg, we announced the winners of the Primo Open Discovery Challenge. Thank you again to all the Primo customers who shared their Primo customization projects with the entire Primo community!
Without further ado… here are the Winners!
