Green Product Award Exhibition 2020

Due to the cancellation of the IHM, these events will not take place!

We ask for your understanding.


The Green Product Award invites you to the international Green Product Award exhibition, which takes place from March 11 to 15, 2020 at IHM Munich, Hall B2 Stand B2.438 on the Green Campus as part of the international craft fair.

The Green Product Award is a competition for sustainable product design that has been held since 2013. It shows products and concepts from established companies, start-ups and newcomers who make a contribution to a more sustainable, greener future with design innovations.

This year, participants from 52 countries applied, but only a few of them made it to the Green Selection 2020 and will be able to present their innovative concepts and products in design to over 110,000 visitors on the IHM Green Campus in Munich. An area of ​​330sqm will be specially designed this year according to our special "FUTURE VILLAGE".

In addition to the products and concepts on display, as in the previous year, we have a large number of interesting speakers who will present their innovative design ideas here in Munich / Germany / Europe for the first time.
