KBB Birmingham, Europe’s largest biennial kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms event, has launched its Innovation Awards 2020 programme. The awards aim to recognise the most forward-thinking solutions in the industry, with all KBB Birmingham exhibitors being encouraged to enter a new method, idea or product that celebrates innovation before winners are announced at the show in March 2020.
The kitchen manufacturer Blum has been confirmed as the Innovation Awards partner for the 2020 event, and the judging panel will feature leading professionals who represent different areas of the KBB market including design, technical, journalism, and industry backgrounds.
KBB Birmingham have suggested that submissions should represent the very best innovations in the industry, ranging from products and components to manufacturing techniques that are disrupting the market, with only solutions or products launched since March 2018 being accepted. 10 successful shortlisted entries will be displayed across specially designed plinths at the show, and winners will be announced on the third day of KBB Birmingham, 3 March.
“The Innovation Awards is always a highlight of KBB Birmingham as it is a real indicator of all the exciting innovation in the industry,” says Mark Gordon, Director, KBB Birmingham. “We look forward seeing the high standard of entries, that this this year’s Innovations Awards has in store.”
“Creating moving ideas and thinking differently is at the heart of our culture here at Blum UK,” comments Amanda Hughes, Customer Experience Manager, Blum. “Improving lives through innovation and being inspired by great design is what drives Blum and the sector forward and secures it for future generations. We are more than honoured to be supporting the Innovation Awards at KBB Birmingham 2020.”
