about

NauticExpo’s i-NOVO Awards will identify and reward products that improve industry standards through innovation.

i-NOVO will highlight the trade show’s most exceptional products across three categories:

I-NOVO DESIGN AWARD

The i-NOVO Design award will recognize products that take a step outside of the box. Products in this category might integrate current design trends, be visually unique, demonstrate exceptional attention to ergonomics or propose an innovative solution for an emerging need.

I-NOVO ECO AWARD

The i-NOVO Eco award will be attributed to products that lessen or eliminate impact on the environment. Such products might have a sustainable manufacturing process or lower embodied energy and may use biodegradable, recyclable or reusable materials. Products in this category may also have a durable product life cycle and reduced energy consumption.

I-NOVO TECH AWARD

The i-NOVO Tech award will be given to products that demonstrate novel use of technology, whether it be the invention of a new technology, a technological innovation in the fabrication process (automatic or manual), the use of advanced technology to improve a design, the application of existing technologies in a new domain, the integration of several new technologies in one product or a completely innovative concept.

how it works

Our internal team of experts will create a product shortlist to be released on the first day of the trade show.

 

Once the shortlist has been announced, the general public will be called upon to vote for the category winners.

 

Nominees and winners will benefit from extensive promotion at the trade show as well as on the NauticExpo website and across our various medias.

 

All nominees will be identifiable thanks to the i-NOVO label on their stand. A QR code in the guide to be distributed on site and on the i-NOVO label will allow visitors to vote at the show.
