Awards scheme to recognise open space innovation

IoG Saltex has teamed up with other European open space exhibitions to launch a new product innovation awards scheme.

Exhibitors at the EDGE (Expo Demo Green Europe) shows being held in Demo-Dagen (Holland), Demo Groen (Brussels), IoG Saltex (Windsor, see p35) and Salonvert (France), will be able to compete for the EDGE Innovation Awards.

Exhibitors can compete in two categories - the construction and maintenance of open spaces and the design and supply of amenities. A special prize will also be awarded for environmental excellence and sustainability.

There will be winners for each category nationally and these will be judged internationally, with the overall winners announced at the 2010 IoG Industry Awards and National Conference in Cardiff on 25 November.

EDGE chairman Michel Christiaens of Fedagrim, Belgium, said: "The Europe-wide open space industry now has a much-deserved scheme that will showcase this groundbreaking talent."
