The 2024 Concept & Innovation Awards open for entry

The Baby Products Association’s 2024 Concept & Innovation Awards are now open for entry.

The association is inviting the nursery industry and wider community, including students and budding entrepreneurs, to submit interesting product ideas for consideration.

It is keen to promote excellence and innovation in the nursery sector and the annual awards encourage this. Over the years, the judges have been presented with numerous interesting and innovative ideas, many of which have proceeded to market.

“The Concept & Innovation Awards highlight the ethos of our industry trade association,” commented Julie Milne, general manager at the Baby Products Association. “It encourages innovative thinking to produce new product ideas which are effective and safe and make the lives of parents and their babies a little easier. Each year, we are overwhelmed by the creativity and often groundbreaking designs of many entries.”

The winner of the 2023 Concept & Innovation Award was Designability, with an accessible pushchair suitable for manual wheelchair users, developed with mass manufacture in mind. The award was presented to the company’s Dario Canini by Baby Products Association chair Marc Hardenberg.

The entry form for the 2024 Concept & Innovation Awards can be downloaded from the website. The only clause is that the product idea must not be for sale prior to Harrogate international Nursery Fair which takes place from 13-15 October 2024.
