WoodShow Innovation & Excellence Awards

Dubai WoodShow has been supporting the growth of the wood & wood working industry since 2005 and we’re delighted to announce the first edition of the Innovation & Excellence Awards celebration which will see the much-anticipated achievements through leadership thereby raising the bar of excellence.

The WoodShow Innovation and Excellence Awards is a premier competition for excellence and innovation in the wood and woodworking machinery sectors. It will recognize, encourage and promote outstanding innovations, craftsmanship and achievements for both the sectors. It’s going to be a special day, allowing the industry to, catch up with old friends and colleagues, meet new ones, have a great time together and yes, the emphasis of the awards is going to be squarely placed on informality, networking and fun. But also, on merit. The awards ceremony will be hosted during the annual edition of Dubai WoodShow that will take place from 5 – 17 March, 2022 at Dubai World Trade Centre, Dubai, UAE.

The award entries will be subject to a completely unbiased and transparent process of selection, analysis and voting during the months leading into the event by an external and independent team of leading industry practitioners. So, everyone will need to bring their A-game: the finalists, winners and sponsors will receive widespread publicity and recognition as the best companies in the industry.

This will be a well-deserved celebration for world-class members of such a deserving, resilient and creative industry. And at a time when it’s needed most. The awards are classified in two primary categories viz. Corporate Awards and Individual Awards, which are further sub-divided into further categories. The competition will be announced in September, 2021 and the shortlist entrants will be invited to the Dubai WoodShow exhibition for the hosting ceremony. The shortlisted entrants and winners will also receive exposure through the competition’s PR and marketing.
