fCNews is currently accepting nominations for its inaugural FCNnovation Awards, a way to recognize and showcase groundbreaking and industry-changing ideas. By recognizing the innovations that are decided to be a cut above the rest, suppliers and their products gain credit and gain additional exposure.
Nominations are open in the following categories:
- Rigid core/WPC
- laminate flooring
- Installation related
Nominations must include a category, product name and one paragraph describing the innovation, why it is important/relevant to retailers and consumers, and how dealers can turn this information into profit at the point of sale. Suppliers are asked to submit only one innovation per product category.
Flooring products are judged on design and/or performance (technology). The software category will recognize new products that significantly contribute to improved efficiency, productivity and performance of a retail flooring company.
A panel of independent retail industry experts will judge the nominations in each category against the following criteria:
1. Innovation that stands out from other products currently being produced or processes currently in use
2. Advantage for the specialist shop or consumer
Entries must be currently on the market and introduced in calendar year 2021.
Send FCNnovation Awards nominations to Steven Feldman, FCNews publisher, at [email protected] Submission deadline is November 23, 2021. Winners will be announced and their products featured in the December 20/27 edition of FCNews.
Remember: today’s innovation is tomorrow’s standard.
