Building on success
- the flooring industry's
own award scheme

The industry's newest awards scheme was launched by The Stocklists in 2018 to great acclaim and welcomed as an exceptional, independent award scheme.

The Flooring Innovation Awards recognises everything that's genuinely new, exciting and innovative in the UK flooring industry.

Winning an Innovation Star is a badge of honour you can associate with your business for the year ahead to add kudos to your marketing and to your trade show stand at Harrogate and beyond.

 

The Stocklists magazine is the proud sponsor of the Flooring Innovation Awards

FLOORING INNOVATION AWARDS 2019

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 have quickly been recognised as a key credential in the industry - with a star logo that you can use on your 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.
