2019 Product Innovations

  • Items must support end users in commercial settings, including education, corporate, healthcare, hospitality, government and retail.

Ineligible: Commercial products must be on display at NeoCon and available to buyers by the end of 2019. Residential products and individual product winners from 2017 and 2018 are not eligible.

Entry Materials


(We will use what you write below, so dont be shy.)

1. What problem does your product help solve?

2. What makes your product unique?

Press release:

A press release or brochure — A standard press release is suitable, though the strongest entries describe the functionality, performance, or productivity of the product as it relates to facilities management.

Images (up to 3):

High-resolution images (up to 3) — A mix of standard and application shots is best so judges can visualize how the product is used. Only one will be selected for publication.

Images should be saved at 300 dpi (at least 250KB) in JPEG, TIFF, or EPS format. Please label each file with this format: CompanyName_ProductName1.


Deadline: We are accepting submissions thru Friday, May 17 at noon, CT.

General Fee: $349 (Pay securely online by credit card.)


Finalists are selected based on their relevance to facilities management.

Each entry will be judged by our editorial staff based on your submission materials (questionnaire answers, press release and photography). If your product is selected as a finalist, it will then be reviewed by a BUILDINGS editor at NeoCon.

Finalist Notification: May 31, 2019


There will be an Editors’ Choice winner, Grand Prize winners and Merit Prize winners. Here is what each receives:

  • A PDF display announcing your award status to include in your NeoCon® showroom.

  • Coverage in the August 2019 online + print issue of BUILDINGS. This special feature will be promoted on our homepage, in the BUILDINGS Bulletin e-newsletter and across our social media platforms.

  • An individual online product listing on our Products page, a digital catalog of solutions for facility managers.

  • Marketing materials such as an awards plaque, complimentary issues, press releases and backlinks.

This is a competitive awards program—submission does not guarantee selection. Your company may submit multiple products, but only one may be selected per category.

If your product is not selected, it does not move forward in the competition and will not be included in the Product Innovations feature. Entries that do not win will be considered for placement in a future issue in the regular Products Section.

Editors reserve the right to revise all product descriptions.
