spoga horse award 2017: These are the nominees

45 entries, 31 participating companies, 22 nominees: These are the promising signs for the spoga horse award 2017. The award is part of the tradition at the autumn event, which will unite the international equestrian sport industry from 3 to 5 September. The award has been conferred by Koelnmesse and its media partner equitrends since 2015 in this year’s categories Innovation, Sales Concepts and Sustainability. The nominated companies have already won now: All products, sales concepts and business strategies for sustainable development will namely be exhibited on the spoga horse award area in Passage 10/11 throughout the entire duration of the trade fair. This is also where the winners of the award will be announced on the last day of the trade fair.

The equestrian sport industry lives from its innovations, ideas and its commitment. In this way, once again this year the entries submitted to the spoga horse award are once again a reflection of the innovative power and creativity. The expert jury, comprising of Steffen Kandel (Kandel Riding Boots), Uwe Karow (Professional Riders Association, UKB Business Consulting), Jan Tönjes (Chief Editor, St. Georg), Markus Wörmann (Editor, Reiter Revue) and
Markus Zwerlin (Reitsport Zwerlin), was impressed by the quality of the entries and stressed that selecting the winners certainly hadn’t been an easy task. The inter-disciplinary specialised knowledge of the jury with its members from the trade, consulting sector and media flows into the decision process for selecting the nominees, in order to do justice to both the diversity of the entries and the complex demands of the specialised trade and the end consumer.
