The IFES Development + Innovation Award (IDIA) will be presented for the second time this year at EuroShop 2023 and will again honor products, projects, and services that stand out as special innovations for the trade show and event industry. The focus is on future strength, economic efficiency and sustainable use.
More specifically, the four award categories are about:
Product – a product innovation or further development of an existing product which, through its use, simplifies daily life, increases efficiency and sustainability, and/or opens up design possibilities.
Service – a service that simplifies processes, and increases customer loyalty, efficiency, and sustainability.
Management / Production Process – new and changed management and/or manufacturing processes that increase the value of ESG (Environment/Social/Governance) aspects in a company resulting in higher efficiency, better CSR, reduction of the carbon footprint and/or higher transparency in management decisions.
Out of the Box – disruptive solutions that change communication before, during or after a trade show. Both ready-made solutions and creative approaches and concept developments are welcome in this category. This category is explicitly open to young people.
