A Grand Cru in 2013

This year, 319 projects are nominated for the SESAMES Awards competition, the unchallenged label that rewards the industry’s best innovations. Indeed, the competition represents a real promotional springboard for the winners, whose brand awareness increases considerably, thus facilitating the success of their projects.

There really is a SESAMES effect and some of the winners testify that winning an award can considerably support the launch of new products, in terms of press releases and customer perception. The SESAMES Awards reward the top ten technological innovations that span the entire sector.
