Booth Awards

The Canadian Furniture Show Best Booth Awards will be back in 2017, in collaboration with SOFA. The awards aim at rewarding exhibitors who have gone above and beyond in creating a truly outstanding booth!

 

A jury of esteemed industry professionals, selected by SOFA, will evaluate and honor outstanding booths on Friday, May 26. The winners will be announced later on that day, during the industry party, at around 7 p.m.

 

Several awards will be presented to recognize excellence in exhibit design. Booths will be evaluated based on three criterias:

  • Creativity, imagination and originality
  • Use of your product, images and visuals in the booth design
  • Overall appearance and visitor experience
