IBC Innovation Awards
Unique in the industry these highly coveted awards celebrate collaboration in technology and creativity. This year we have made important changes to the categories in recognition of the shifting industry landscape.
IBC Stand Design Awards
Helping visitors find the technologies they require from the 1,700+ IBC exhibitors is a challenge. We play our part in the way we lay out the halls by theme, and the exhibitors play their part by designing stands which guide the visitor and showcase their products. The Stand Design Awards recognise the best stands in the IBC Exhibition.

Introducing Our New IBC Awards Presenter - Helen Czerski
Helen is a physicist, first and foremost, but she’s acquired a few other labels along the way: oceanographer, presenter, author and bubble enthusiast.
Helen gets particularly excited about the physics of the everyday world and the oceans. Looking up at the cosmos is very important for our awareness of our place in the universe, but the vast majority of the rules that make the universe tick can be seen around us in our daily lives. Helen loves to play with the world, and to encourage others to have confidence in their ability to explore it and think about it too. And the oceans are the heart of the Earth’s engine, the system of atmosphere, rocks, ice, life and ocean that makes up our planetary life support system. Beyond the purely scientific, Helen is fascinated by the relationship between human civilisations and the oceans, and how these vast expanses of blue have shaped and influenced the structure of human society.
Helen was asked by the BBC to audition for a presenting role, and this opened up a whole new way of sharing her enthusiasm for science. Since then, she has presented documentaries on a wide range of subjects relating to physics in general, and also atmospheric and ocean science. She is passionate about conveying the beauty and ingenuity of the physical world around us, and the perspective on the world that science provides.
