The winners, two in each of the four categories, will be announced on the occasion of the official Grands Prix ceremony to be held next October during the Equip Auto 2007 show in Paris, France. The International Grands Prix Awards for Automotive Innovation were created 20 years ago during Equip Auto 1985, with the objective of promoting the technology of vehicle equipment manufacturers to a wider audience in the automotive world. Since then, these Awards have become a major event in the automotive news calendar with impressive media impact both in France and on the international scene. The International Grands Prix Awards for Automotive Innovation are organized by Equip Auto with the participation of the international press. The prizes will be awarded by an international jury made up of 82 journalists from 27 countries. Their aim is to select and reward the most innovative concepts, products and services from among the new offerings presented by exhibitors at Equip Auto. For the 2007 edition, the jury is chaired by Bertrand Gay (Les Echos) with the assistance of the vice president David Giardino (Notizario Motoristico). Two prizes, gold and silver, will be awarded next October in Engineering and Advanced Technology, Spare Parts and Aftermarket , Garage Equipment, and, for the first time, Services (consulting, training, logistics, decision making and management aid, engineering…).
