Innovation Award

Since 1986, the BME promotes several awards for the development of innovative concepts which bring sustained improvements in the efficiency of purchasing and logistics.

The "BME Innovation Award" is open to companies operating in the industrial, distributive trade and service sectors. The concept submitted must have been implemented in practice and have made a permanent contribution to the company's success.

Entries may be made in German or English and need to complete an Information form. An independent jury will assess the entries and shortlist the best concepts. The companies with the most innovative solutions will be invited to make a presentation in Frankfurt.
