In advance of the show, exhibitors were invited to enter the show Awards.
The four main categories were: Snowsport Hardware, Outdoor Hardware, Software and Accessories.
In addition, there was an Award for the best Fresh Brand product, which could either be a completely new brand or one new to this show.
All of the above Awards were judged by invited SIGB and OIA member retailers, media and industry opinion-leaders.
Last but not least, is the Eco Award, presented to a product with especially eco-friendly characteristics. This Award was judged independently by Protect Our Winters UK, who used their own stringent criteria, evaluating the product on its own merit and its broader value chain only. Other brand activities (although highly valued) were not taken into account. The product was judged on Protect Our Winters UK interpretation of its overall environmental impact, taking into account and balancing all environmental subjects.
