The awards are open to all PLASA Show 2020 exhibitors. All exhibiting companies will be notified when the awards open for submissions.
Entry for the 2020 Innovation Awards will open soon...
HOW THE AWARDS WORK
All successfully vetted products are judged against one another on the strength of their innovation alone – there are no product categories.
The judging panel will have eight awards of equal standing at their disposal, plus the option of making one or more a ‘Gold’ Award, for those products which stand out above the rest.
THE JUDGING PROCESS
Entrants must first submit an online form. Nominations are then vetted to ensure they meet the requirements of entry.
All successful nominees must make a five minute presentation to the judges who will visit their stand at the show. The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on the Monday evening at the show – times to be confirmed.
The entries must meet one or more of the following:
Improves technical practice
Demonstrates a new style of thinking
Introduces new technology, materials or techniques
Includes patents or unique intellectual property
Offers a new commercial advantage
To be eligible for the PLASA Award for Sustainability entries must:
- Significant reduction of power usage for its product type/application
- Effective use of renewable energy sources
- Significant reduction of environmental impact of product life cycle
Entrants must be PLASA Show 2020 exhibitors and products must have been launched since PLASA Show 2019.
Nominees benefit from inclusion in the PLASA Show Preview issue of LSi Magazine and in the Official PLASA Show Catalogue.
Nominated products are also showcased in a gallery on the PLASA Show website.
AT THE SHOW
Nominated products will be exhibited on the Innovation Gallery – a key visitor attraction at the PLASA Show.
Power is provided to demonstrate the capability of the product (limitations apply).
The entry fee for the PLASA Awards for Innovation is £400 plus VAT – a highly preferential rate given the level of publicity generated by the Awards.
The fee covers all administration and judging expenses plus the cost of exhibiting the product in the Innovation Gallery at the PLASA Show, including power for your product (13 amp)
