New Product Showcase

As one of the most anticipated events at Creativation, the New Product Showcase provides a first look at some of the most exciting new products entering the creative industries. For attendees, the New Product Showcase is a great way to get a sneak peak of some of the most exciting new products before they even hit the Show Floor. Attendees and press also contribute to the New Product Awards judging, which takes place throughout the convention. Criteria is based on what makes the product unique, how it will improve the creative's overall experience, and what makes it interesting to those outside of the industry.
