ABOUT THE FLOORING INNOVATION AWARDS

New, exciting and innovative

The industry's newest awards scheme recognises everything that's new, exciting
and innovative in the UK flooring industry.

We have created an exceptional, independent award scheme enhancing the reputation of products in the flooring industry. Winning an Innovation Star is a badge of honour that recognises the best in the business!

 

THE NEWEST

BADGE OF HONOUR

INDEPENDENT

We are focused on "what's new" so that buyers can easily spot the latest and greatest products and services in the sector.

The Innovation Stars are becoming recognised as a key credential in the industry - with a star logo that can be used on marketing material for a full year after our event.

The judging panel for the awards scheme is made up of flooring industry leaders, editors of trade and home interest magazines and the readers of The Stocklists.

COMPREHENSIVE

HIGH PROFILE

HEADING FOR HARROGATE?

Our categories not only cover your latest products, but also recognise achievements in service, technology and marketing.

There will be lots of promotion in the trade press, through social media and at the Harrogate show.

Award winners may proudly display their Innovation Star on their trade stand at The Flooring Show and feature the Stars prominently in The Stocklists magazine.

The National Flooring Innovation Awards are supported by The Stocklists,
the UK's leading retail and contract magazine dedicated to the flooring industry.
