The 2021 A+Product Awards remains open for submissions for just a little more time, with the Final (Late) Entry Deadline fast approaching on Friday, August 13th. As the architects on our jury wait with anticipation to review this year’s amazing entries, it’s worth reminding ourselves just what value this program brings for makers and manufacturers of modern building products, architectural materials, lighting and furniture.
Home to the world’s largest community of architects online, Architizer is a natural home for a program designed to celebrate innovative building products — those elements and objects that help make new buildings and interior spaces the best they can be for modern society. The pioneering brands behind these products are essential to the success of architects around the globe, helping them to achieve their creative vision while providing long-lasting quality for end users.
If you’re part of a company that is still deciding whether the A+Product Awards is right for you, here are seven ways that the program can help you gain momentum and bring you the recognition your brand deserves:
1. Supercharge your brand amidst COVID-cancelled trade shows.
The building product industry suffered through a year of disappointment in 2020, as every convention, trade show and conference was cancelled or delayed by the COVID–19 pandemic. This year, physical events continue to be surrounded by uncertainty, making digital modes of exhibition more vital than ever. The A+Product Awards offers a powerful avenue to ensure your brand stays top of mind with specifiers throughout the next 12 months, and will stand you in excellent stead for when you can finally meet them in person again.
2. Be a part of a verified list of world class brands.
Each and every product and material entered in the program will be reviewed by our stellar jury of industry experts, comprising 200+ renowned architects and designers that truly understand what it takes to create great buildings and spaces. These thought leaders influence architects & designers worldwide, so winning is a huge validation of your product’s quality.
3. Maintain the edge over your competitors.
Each category attracts the very best brands globally, each vying to secure their place in front of Architizer’s thriving professional community. Your biggest competitors are certain to enter — submit your latest products to ensure your brand maintains its global reputation. The A+Product Awards also provides a powerful opportunity for new and emerging brands to establish themselves among the world’s top names.
