• The Plus X Award Seals of Approval

    Seven reasons for your success

The Plus X Award Seals Of Approval


For 15 years now, Plus X Award’s well-established seals of approval have been providing market guidance and have been giving meaningful recommendations as to which product or service to buy. In today’s markets, it is more important than ever to support consumers in their buying decision and to help them identify innovative and quality products. Furthermore, Plus X Award’s seals of approval constitute bold unique sales propositions clearly distinguishing you from your competitors and they maximise those USPs’ impact right at that point where you can give your customers that final incentive – and that’s at the point of sale.

If a product has not been manufactured to the highest standards and does not meet state-of-the-art specifications, it definitely has no chance to win a Plus X Award seal of approval. And these are only the minimum requirements for a product to be submitted to the Plus X Award jury panel for assessment.

The seven Plus X Award seals of approval for innovation, quality, design, ease of use, functionality, ergonomics and ecology provide guidance to both consumers and trade in their purchasing decisions throughout the supply chain. These categories reflect extraordinary and critical product features, allowing both customers and trade to quickly and clearly identify the added value of a product in comparison to competitor products.

If a product or service is awarded one or several of Plus X Award’s seven seals of approval, it qualifies for a potential additional, special award, such as “Best Product of the Year”, “Best Design Brand”, and “Most Innovative Brand of the Year”.
