We wanted to create an event that is not related to a specific product or a technical solution, but more generally to the courage, determination, entrepreneurial spirit shown by Xylexpo exhibitors during the recent difficult years.

How does it work? Here’s the basic info.

Who can participate: only and exclusively companies exhibiting at Xylexpo 2014 (the exhibitor catalog can be browsed online by clicking on the banner in the left column on the home page www.xylexpo.com).

The jury panel: the jury is made up of all the industry media registered at our press office.

Award categories: through the attached voting form, media will indicate their preferred companies in two categories:

“Innovation”, i.e. the capacity to innovate products in recent years, with special reference to green economy and impact on the production processes of customers;

“Communication”, i.e. the commitment to communicate your way of “being an enterprise”, which can include online and offline activities, specific focus on social media, highly effective advertising campaigns, attention and consistent approach to media representatives.

Voting procedure: through the attached voting form, jury members may indicate up to three preferences in each category, adding a short explanation for their choice. The vote is obviously secret.

Actions by companies: the award does not require companies to candidate themselves or support their participation, although we strongly recommend this. The award is assigned independently by media, who express a general opinion on a company, its innovation capacity and value communication skills. Companies may inform about their participation, support their nomination by contacting the industry media directly or submitting useful materials or information to our secretariat, to be distributed to all media through our channels.

Terms and conditions: companies may invite media to vote until April 30, 2014; that's also the deadline for media to submit their voting forms to the secretariat. On May 6, at the Acimall offices, the award committee will meet to count the votes; the winners will be proclaimed during the media gala evening, on Wednesday, May 14, 2014.
