Totally shows organiser Brintex has launched the search for the Best New Products Awards at next February's shows, this year re-named Show Stoppers.
The awards, sponsored by DIY Week, Hardware & Garden Review and BMJ, recognise innovation, quality, function and price across all the new products at the shows, in six categories: DIY, Tools, Decorative, Garden, Security and Hardware.
Show director James Murray said: "The 'Best New Product Awards' run every year at the show. They are judged and announced on our first day, with the help of our sponsor DIY publisher Faversham House. This year we've decided to call our search for those best new products 'Show Stoppers' because that's exactly what they'll need to be to capture our judges attention."
Winners will be announced at the exhibitors and visitors drinks party, which will take place on the first evening of the show (Sunday February 7) in the show hall.
