Interbike Innovation Awards




Following a successful relaunch last year, the Interbike Innovation Awards will return for 2018, showcasing excellence in product, retail and exhibitor booths. 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 selected during the show and identified with stickers in front of their booths.


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.


Booth innovation and design awards will return this year, but will now 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.
