German Brand Award
The „German Brand Award“ is given out by the Design Council. It rewards successful brand management in Germany and showcases pioneering brands and outstanding brand-makers. The competition and prize-giving are a unique communications forum and an opportunity to credibly evidence brand expertise. The competition was initiated by the Design Council, a foundation with 230 members from business, design, associations and institutions. In 2016, Weidmüller won in the category “Industry Excellence”. The consistent communication of the brand content at our shows made the brand really stand out.
The B.A.U.M. Award recognises the efforts of various players with respect to the environment and sustainability. The diverse criteria the jury uses to assesses the ambitions of the individual companies, institutes and private individuals is reflected in the broad spectrum of award categories.
