The IFES Development + Innovation Award (IDIA) celebrates ground-breaking advances, developmental improvements, outstanding implementations as well as visionary plans and studies that "stand out from the crowd." During EuroShop 2023, IFES presented its IDIA Awards for the second time.

Global tension fabric giant, Moss, took first prize. Their product submission presented an exclusive 100% recycled fabric produced for the global exhibition market. The jury emphasised in particular: "This product sends a clear signal to our industry that there are superior options that we can use in many of our projects to improve sustainability."

beMatrix, Belgium took second place with ProjectC!™, their masterplan towards sustainable success across all levels of product, company, and industry with a lasting focus on economic and social sustainability. The jury commented, "ProjectC!™ is a very impressive roadmap to take them into a fully circular economy, and they are certainly on a good path to achieve ISO 20121 certification as well."

The third place was awarded to Kadmon-Brin for their thoughtful design of the TEVA Api Booth at CPHI, Frankfurt. Their client requested an "out‐of‐the‐box +sustainability concept" and Kadmon-Brin exceeded their expectations with this unusual concept empowered by sustainability. "A really great initiative to see cardboard boxes used in this way, (...) showing us what is possible when you work with different types of material in trade fair construction", praised the jury.
