INTERNATIONAL GRANDS PRIX
AWARDS FOR AUTOMOBILE INNOVATION
The international panel of judges for the International Grands Prix Awards for Automobile Innovation has announced a shortlist of 22 contestants. The official awards ceremony will take place on Tuesday 13 October at EQUIP AUTO.
The International Grands Prix Awards were created 24 years ago, at EQUIP AUTO 1985, with the aim of promoting vehicle equipment manufacturers’ technology to the entire global automobile industry. The Grands Prix are now a major event for the automotive sector, attracting massive media coverage in France and worldwide.
The International Grands Prix Awards for Automobile Innovation are organised by EQUIP AUTO, with the cooperation with the European Technical Journalists Association (AJTE), the French automobile press association (AFPA) and the international press. The Grands Prix are awarded by an international panel of judges made up of 87 journalists from 26 countries. Their aim is to highlight the most innovative concepts, products and services presented by EQUIP AUTO exhibitors.
The gold and silver awards for each category will be presented at the exhibition during the the International Grands Prix Awards for Automobile Innovation ceremony at 7 pm on Tuesday 13 October. Leading figures from the automobile world and the media will be in attendance.
