Held once every three years in Dusseldorf, Germany, EuroShop sets the tone for the stand- and retail-design industries. Featuring inventive materials, unique concepts, and one-off creations, the trade fair offers endless inspiration for exhibit and event professionals the world over. As the official stand design competition endorsed by EuroShop, EXHIBITOR Magazine's EuroShop Awards honor the most impressive stands this trend-setting show has to offer.
The stands are awarded in 5 categories – depending on their size:
XS: 20 or less sqm.
Small: 21 - 39 sqm.
Medium: 40 - 79 sqm.
Large: 80 - 200 sqm.
XL: More than 200 sqm.
All trade show stands at EuroShop 2023 are automatically entered in the competition free of charge and judged on site during the show.
Representatives from EXHIBITOR select up to 10 finalists in each of the five size-based categories. Winners are determined by an international panel of design experts, who evaluate finalists based on their aesthetics, functionality, and innovation. Finalists are announced during the show, and EuroShop attendees and exhibitors then vote for their favorite designs in the People’s Choice Award portion of the competition.
Recognition & Awards Ceremony
Up to 10 finalists will be selected in each category, notified on the show floor, and presented with a plaque. Gold, Silver, and Bronze Award winners in each category (including the People's Choice Award portion of the program) will be announced at the Awards Ceremony on Wednesday, March 1, at 4 p.m. on the Expo and Event Stage in Hall 1, where they will receive trophies for their award-winning work.
