Now in its tenth edition, the Innovation Challange is taking on a new format that for the first time will involve the vast public of winemakers and experts at Enoforum in the selection of the winners.

Participating in the Innovation Challenge is the challenge for all companies that want to offer innovative solutions.

Purpose of the initiative

The initiative was created with the aim of promoting and disseminating the best product innovations or processes presented by exhibitors at SIMEI and Enovitis.
The protagonists of the competition are the innovations that prove capable of furthering technical progress in the field of viticulture, winemaking and beverage production processes.
The award-winning solutions in the Innovation Challenge benefit from strong visibility in the various sectors thanks to important communication activities supported by all the trade publications.

2019: New competition rules

With the 2019 edition, the Innovation Challenge competition is enhanced by the partnership with Vinidea and the rules for selecting the winners have changed. Next to the technical-scientific committee, composed of university professors, experts and representatives of the end user companies, who will be responsible for the initial selection of candidates, there will then be a technical panel of international experts who will select which they believe to be the best innovations.
The panel’s opinions will then be combined in the final rankings with the scores that the finalists obtain with the votes from the public at Enoforum.

The winners will be awarded prizes at SIMEI 2019.
