New award at leading bike fair: Eurobike Innovators Award

As the leading international trade fair Eurobike prepares to meet at Messe Frankfurt in Germany from July 13-17, 2022, the show is awarding a new award. The Eurobike Innovators award will be given to the most innovative products, services and ideas in the bicycle industry. Companies can submit their products for review by June 6.

“We have completely redesigned the Eurobike for 2022,” said Stefan Reisinger, Head of Eurobike. “That’s why we’ve also changed the way we recognize outstanding innovation. The projects awarded the Eurobike Innovators award rethink sustainable mobility and the product experience. Their contribution will go far beyond the world of cycling.

The Eurobike Innovators award focuses on innovations from start-ups and established companies. These can submit their ideas in award categories such as vehicles, components and equipment as well as services and infrastructure ideas.

Separate from the Eurobike Award, the Eurobike Innovators Award has a different selection and decision-making process. It consists of a public vote, a new evaluation criterion, a jury of experts and a live pitch.

There is a new multi-step nomination and selection process. On the one hand, the opinion of a high-level jury of experts counts, and on the other hand, the large Eurobike audience also has a major influence on the decisions.

The preselection for the final round will take place from June 13 to 24 during an online vote. Interested global online audiences can vote and define 15 nominees across the five categories. On July 14, the 15 finalists will have the opportunity to present their products and ideas at the Eurobike show.

During a prize-giving ceremony, the professional public and the jury of experts will select the winners from among the most innovative projects.

Eurobike adds that… “Assessment is based on degree of innovation and disruptive potential, applicability and improvement over existing approaches, market potential as well as opportunities for scaling, social impact and media and contributing to a sustainable mobile future.”

Winners will benefit from a wide range of Eurobike Innovators packages. They will receive media attention with Eurobike media advertisements and personalized press releases as well as free booth space at the VELOBerlin public festival in spring 2023. One-on-one coaching with industry experts will also help young people companies to establish their projects on the bike. market.
