Altogether, around 100 entries were accepted from 13 countries for the pre-judgement in all eleven product categories. The entries are thus on a very high level - as has been the case in the previous awards. Sebastian Schmid is delighted with the response from the sector: "The number of applicants shows the need in the sector for companies to be able to present their developed innovations to the specialist public already in February 2021. For this reason, the presentation of the R+T Innovation Award will be the central focus of the concept of the digital event." The pre-judgement will take place at the beginning of December, in which the entries will be viewed by the specialist jury and the product nominations will be decided. For the first time with this award, several prize winners will be honoured for each category.
The applicants again include renowned companies who have already taken part in the Innovation Award several times, but also some new companies. In addition, there are long-term R+T exhibitors who have entered their products for the R+T Innovation Award for the first time. "Overall, we've got a great mix with the applications! We are delighted that the companies are accepting and using the opportunities we are offering with R+T digital. Innovations will again play an important role at R+T 2022, because the physical face-to-face trade fair will continue to be the trend barometer and highlight of the roller shutters, doors/gates and sun protection systems sector," adds Sebastian Schmid.
