So what is the InPrint: Great Innovations Competition?
Have you heard of TV Talent shows like ‘Dragon’s Den, Sharks Tank and the X Factor’? well again this year at InPrint in Milan, we will have our own version of these competitions – Great Innovations - which will highlight and recognise both ‘Technical Innovation and Business Potential’ in the Industrial Print sector.
As in previous years, 2014 in Hannover when Hymmen and Machines Dubuit and in 2015 Munich, when Ricoh and Kuei were awarded with the prestigious ‘Great and Highly commended awards’, we will be looking to award two companies as winners of Great Innovation Awards for 2016.
And we are looking for Exhibitors to participate and visitors to join the audience!
We will select the best entries to each share with us and the selected panel of judges their own Great Innovation. Judges will be looking for originality, technical competence and real business value! Each participant will have 4 minutes to present their idea to the judges and to the audience. Participants will be allowed to use visual aids to help pitch their innovation.
The panellists look at the innovative value of the product or technology plus its commercialisation. Whilst raw ideas are valued, the innovation that has been launched and is being used within industry will score higher.
There will then time for judges to ask questions. When the panel has whittled down the field to the two final companies, the audience vote for their preferred winner.
This competition will take place on the afternoon of Thursday 17th November at 2.30pm in the InPrint Showcase Theatre.
