Brink’s Cash Services
Ireland’s leading supplier of cash handling solutions to Irish retailers.

The Innovation Awards are the perfect opportunity for exhibitors at the Show to step out from the crowd and showcase their innovative products or services to visitors from across the country. The winners are judged by a “Dragons’ Den” style panel of industry experts and buyers with the winners in each category revealed at the Awards presentation on the evening of Saturday the 19th of February.

The panel of professionals will convene in advance of the Show to judge the four categories: Home, Garden, Build, DIY, with awards for Commended, Highly Commended, and Winner, as well as Overall Winner.

Their products are showcased at the entrance to the Show for the full two days of the exhibition making it easy for you to find ‘Best in Show’.
