EXHIBITOR Magazine Announces Expo 2017 Award Winners
8/31/2017
For more than 30 years, EXHIBITOR magazine has brought you the world’s most prestigious exhibit-design competition, honoring the crème de la crème of trade show exhibits. Along those same lines, in 2010, 2012, and 2015, EXHIBITOR honored some of the most impressive temporary experiential structures the world has ever seen with its Expo Awards competitions in Shanghai, Milan, and Yeosu, South Korea. Continuing that tradition, EXHIBITOR launched its Expo 2017 Awards three months ago, and is finally ready to announce the winners and honorable mentions in the competition’s 10 categories.

The purpose of this competition is to honor the most impressive work from Expo 2017 in Astana, Kazakhstan, and to spotlight some of the incredible pavilions there, all brimming with inspiration for exhibit and event professionals. The competition entries dozens of pavilions, representing countries from Malaysia to Monaco, Sri Lanka to Saudi Arabia, Thailand to Turkey, the United Kingdom to the United Arab Emirates, and many more.

While a star-studded international panel of multidisciplinary design, marketing, and communications experts judged eight categories (visit www.ExhibitorOnline.com/awards/expo for more on our judging panel), the Editor’s Choice Award was determined by the writers and editors of EXHIBITOR magazine, and the People’s Choice Award winner was determined by popular vote on www.ExhibitorOnline.com, where more than 50,000 readers and Expo enthusiasts cast their votes.

“The Expo 2017 Award winners and honorable mentions represent some of the world’s best examples of how design, technology, presentation, and storytelling come together to create immersive experiences and effectively communicate compelling messages,” said Travis Stanton, editor of EXHIBITOR magazine. “These examples will hopefully inform and inspire today’s exhibit and event professionals — along with the next generation of face-to-face marketers. Because whether you’re creating an immense international pavilion or a small 10-by-10-foot exhibit, it’s often about making a lasting impression, and the work on display in Astana does that in truly monumental and memorable ways.”

For the fourth consecutive Expo, the Germany Pavilion took top honors for Best Pavilion, followed by the United Kingdom who claimed an honorable mention in that category. Meanwhile, Monaco was named Best Small Pavilion, followed by Singapore, which received an honorable mention. In total, 16 different pavilions received recognition in this year’s competition, with the pavilions from Germany, Qatar, and Turkey earning high marks in multiple categories.

So join us in congratulating EXHIBITOR Magazine’s Expo 2017 Award winners (listed below). After all, according to our judges, our readers, and our team of writers and editors, they are among the best the world (well, the world expo, at least) has to offer.
