Who Judges the Awards?

Each year the Pro Tool Innovation Awards are judged by a panel of industry professionals who handle and use hundreds of new tools each year. From personal use on the job site to exposure to tools at media events and industry trade shows, our team can spot innovation a mile away.

When are the Awards?

Manufacturers are invited to the Pro Tool Innovation Awards by the beginning of Q3, allowing plenty of time to enter their products and have them judged in time for the holiday buying season, and important trade shows like STAFDA, NECA, World of Concrete, the SHOT Show, and The NAHB’s International Builders’ Show.

How Do I Sign Up?

The greatest thing about the Pro Tool Innovation Awards is that we already work with most major manufacturers—so we contact YOU! If you are new to the Pro Tool Innovation Awards, however, it’s possible we don’t yet have you on our list. If this is the case, please contact us and we’ll make sure you receive an invite when the awards launch each year.
