Celebrating excellence in tabletop

Following the success of the last two editions of the Tableware International Awards of Excellence, industry publication Tableware International launches the third edition, for 2020, to recognise the products and people that make this industry so successful.
The Awards will cast a spotlight on innovation and design excellence, honouring tableware that is functional, beautiful, original and tells a story.
Tabletop manufacturers, companies and suppliers are invited to enter their products and collections into the Awards 2020, which comprises 17 categories covering the complete tabletop make-up. Entries are open from May 31st – September 30th, 2019.
Following the debut of the Lifetime Achievement Award for 2019, for 2020, we are adding the Sustainability Award – in recognition of a company/brand/supplier in tabletop that has recognised, and responded to, the need for increased sustainability.

Our prestigious panel of international judges, including Wayfair EU, Dom Farfora, Parousiasi and William Ashley will judge the entries according to the criteria of Design/Functionality, Innovation, Aesthetics and Storytelling, and shortlist three finalists in each category, along with a final winner.

The finalists will all feature in our Awards supplement in January 2020 and the final winners in our Awards Winner supplement in March 2020, with the finalists acknowledged and winners announced at our Awards Ceremony during Ambiente 2020.
