Returning after a programme redesign in 2017, the Interbike Innovation Awards are now set with submissions open for exhibitors in the product categories.
The Interbike Innovation Awards feature 19 product-specific accolades distributed across the mountain, road, e-bike and triathlon categories.
Products considered will be for the upcoming 2019 sales season and will encompass those brands that are participating at Interbike or Outdoor Demo. All submissions must be made by July 15th, 2018.
“The shift in our Awards programme was well-received and its value among our exhibitors is strong,” said Interbike vice president Pat Hus. “Our partners have done a fantastic job of evaluating and choosing the winners, and we look forward to continuing the programme at our new home in Reno Tahoe.”
Ten Retailer Innovation Award winners will be chosen via a submission process for shops that have implemented innovative ideas and strategies to their business with positive results over the past 12 months.
PeopleForBikes returns to lead the new Advocacy Innovation Awards, which will recognize three exhibiting Interbike brands or attending independent bicycle retailers that have “worked tirelessly in the pursuit of creating safer places to ride on a local, regional or national level.”
A complete list of the award categories and criteria for submissions can be found on the Interbike website.
