Interbike Innovation Awards
The Interbike Innovation Awards showcase excellence in product, retail, advocacy and exhibitor booths.
Interbike Innovation Awards partners for determining winners in the product categories include Hi-Torque Publications (Mountain Bike Action, Road Bike Action, Electric Bike Action), and Triathlete magazine. A total of 19 product innovation awards will be distributed across the mountain, road, electric and triathlon categories. The products recognized will be for the upcoming 2019 sales season, and only brands participating at Interbike or OutDoor Demo will be considered.
Ten Retailer Innovation Award winners will be chosen via a submission process for shops that have implemented innovative ideas and strategies to their business with positive results over the past 12 months. Retailers that submit will automatically be entered to win a host of prizes, including round-trip travel and accommodations to this year’s show, a press release template for use with announcing their award to local media, a store profile in Bicycle Retailer and Industry News (BRAIN), an opportunity to present their innovative idea in an exciting TedX format presentation at Interbike, and more. A panel of executives from BRAIN, The Mann Group, The National Bicycle Dealers Association (NBDA) and Interbike will choose the winners at the end of the submission process, slated to run during the month of May.
PeopleForBikes returns to lead the new Advocacy Innovation Awards, that will recognize three exhibiting Interbike brands or attending independent bicycle retailers that have worked tirelessly in the pursuit of creating safer places to ride on a local, regional or national level.
Booth innovation and design awards will be led by editorial staff from Exhibitor Magazine, the monthly business-to-business magazine featuring best practices in trade shows and events. Exhibitor Magazine’s staff will walk the show floor on Tuesday, September 18-19, 2018 and award three winners based on booth size (up to 300 sq. feet, 400-900 sq. feet and more than 1000 sq. feet).
