Special focus: 20 years of innovations with Innov'Space

Innov'Space has celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2015! Created in 1995 under the name "First Presentation", this award has enabled many SPACE exhibitors to effectively promote their innovations at the Show and in their advertising materials.

Over the past 20 years, 2,383 entries were submitted: 46 in 1995, 155 in 2015 (with a peak in 2013 with 178 entries submitted). In all, 1,073 Innov'Space prizes have been awarded in 20 years to 513 winning companies. 

On the occasion of this anniversary, SPACE organizers have honoured the companies that have won at least five times since 1995. These 45 companies have received an award.
