With an international and independent panel of judges from 80 industries, 23 strategic partners and more than 700 participating international brands, the Plus X Award is the world’s largest innovation award for technology, sports and lifestyle. Plus X Award Seals of Approval are conferred upon products judged to possess at least one “Plus X” factor. Awards are given for new and innovative technologies, extraordinary design and intelligent, easy to use operating systems. Criteria such as outstanding ergonomic and ecological features, along with the use of high quality material add up to sustainable products with long lasting value and are also honored by the Plus X Award. The innovation award was initiated to strengthen brands, trade and commerce and support consumers in their purchasing decisions. In 2020, Plus X Award is celebrating its seventeenth anniversary.
