Apply now for the EISEN Award 2018

Innovations are the engine of our industry. This is why the INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR honours pioneering solutions and inventions with the EISEN Innovation Award. In addition, the EISEN CSR Award will be granted for the particular commitment to social and ecological sustainability. Companies that excel in these areas should apply for our awards as quickly as possible. The deadline for registration is 18 January.

Has your company developed a new product that makes work easier, safer or more productive? Then you are a potential candidate for the EISEN 2018 Award! With this innovation award, Koelnmesse and the Central Association of the German hardware trade (Zentralverband Hartwarenhandel – ZHH) recognize new products that offer clear progress in terms of form, function, design, sustainability and/or economic efficiency. Please note: The innovations cannot be presented to the public prior to the INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR 2018.

The Eisen 2018 Award powered by ZHH will be granted in three categories:

  • Tools, manual hand-held tools, power tools and accessories
  • Fastening and connection technology, fittings, furniture and small fittings, security equipment
  • Industrial supplies, workshop and factory equipment, industrial safety

In addition to the quality and functionality of products, ecological and social aspects are becoming increasingly important factors. For this reason, Koelnmesse, in cooperation with the DIY, Construction and Garden Trade Association (BHB), has been giving away the EISEN 2018 CSR Award powered by BHB since 2012. It is awarded for sustainable corporate social responsibility projects in four areas: workplace, market, environment and society/community.

The nominees for both awards will be announced by mid-February 2018 – we will of course keep you posted. The awards ceremony will take place on the evening of the fair’s first day (04.03.2018) during the welcoming party at Tanzbrunnen. All nominated products and concepts will be presented to the international trade public on the Mittelboulevard throughout the entire fair.

Would you like to apply for one of the two awards? Follow the link for further information and terms & conditions. To find out more about the EISEN Awards visit us on Facebook or on Twitter.

[UPDATE] New application deadline for the EISEN Award 2018! Companies can now apply with their innovative ideas until 26 January.
