New Product Showcase
If you are introducing a new product for the Muskie industry for 2016, the New Product Showcase offers the perfect way to highlight your latest addition and gain unparalleled visibility with buyers, consumers and media. The New Product Showcase is Chicago Muskie Expo’s flagship feature and recognizes your innovation while rewarding your contribution to the Muskie industry through the New Product Showcase competition.
What Qualifies as a New Product?
A product qualifies as “new” if it has not appeared in distribution in the North American market, at any level of distribution, prior to January 1st 2016, or appeared in any 2015 (or earlier) product catalog. Each submission will be reviewed for consistency to these rules.
Compete for “Best of Show” Award
During the first day of the show, buyers and media-editorial badge holders who visit the New Product Showcase will evaluate each new product and grade it based on the product’s innovation, execution, workmanship and practicality. The product with the most votes in each category will be awarded “Best of Show” for that category. The product with the most total votes will be named overall “Best of Show” winner. Voting begins on Friday, January 8th at noon during the New Product Showcase Preview Reception and continues through close of show at 9:00pm on Friday, January 8th.
Only registered buyers and individuals with media-editorial badges are eligible to vote. Voting buyers and media are allowed one ballot per buying entity or media outlet.
