M TECHNOLOGY AWARD
The M TECHNOLOGY AWARD, organized by iF, is an annual open competition honoring outstanding supplier products on a broad international basis. The award process is in the reliable hands of the iF International Forum Design (Hanover).
Furniture industry and interior fittings suppliers as well as suppliers of architectural and design products can now submit their entries for the M Technology Award 2009. Both exhibitors at the international ZOW trade fairs and non-exhibitors are invited to participate. And designs can be entered in the categories fittings, chemical products, fitted units and systems, semi-finished products, interior furnishings, surfaces, materials and concepts.
The deadline for entries is August 21, 2009. The awards ceremony will take place at the opening of the ZOW Italy on October 21 in Verona. Products entered should not have been on the market for longer than two years at the time of the fair.
As an annual open competition since 2007, the M TECHNOLOGY AWARD is attractive not only to exhibitors from the entire array of Survey’s international ZOW events in Germany, Italy, Spain, Russia and China and Turkey: non-ZOW exhibitors can also take part and present their latest developments to a panel of renowned experts.
Both ZOW exhibitors and non-ZOW-exhibitors can take part in the M TECHNOLOGY AWARD 2009. Entries should display technical features, innovation and quality of design. At the time of the fair, they must not have been on the market for more than two years. Of course, concept entries do not have to have made it to market.
There is no limit to the number of entries allowed per applicant. A manufacturer, designer, architect, developer or design engineer can enter. The products entered must not violate patents or trademarks belonging to others. Any liability of the organizer is excluded
