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 will quickly be 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.
