Interbike Innovation Awards
The Interbike Innovation Awards showcase excellence in product, retail, advocacy and exhibitor booths. Following a successful relaunch last year, the Interbike Innovation Awards will return for 2018, showcasing excellence in product, retail and advocacy. A total of 19 product-specific awards will be distributed across the mountain, road, e-bike and triathlon categories. Interbike will once again partner with Hi-Torque Publications to evaluate and select the winners in mountain, road and electric. New for this year, all triathlon product award recipients will be selected by Triathlete Magazine. Exhibitors’ winning products will be on display on the concourse outside exhibit hall 3.
Ten Retailer Innovation Award winners will be chosen by Bicycle Retailer And Industry News (BRAIN), The Mann Group, The National Bicycle Dealers Association (NBDA) and Interbike. These are shops that have implemented innovative ideas and strategies to their business with positive results over the past 12 months. Be sure to attend the Retail by Retailers session on Wednesday at 5:00 p.m. where these retailers will present their winning innovations.
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.
