Gold Medal competition


The GOLD MEDAL is not only an award, it is a promotion strategy for awarded companies, which begins at the Grupa MTP fair.


The MTP Gold Medal is one of the best recognised awards in the Polish market, which is awarded – after thorough evaluation by experts – to innovative products of the highest quality.

Each year, almost 500 products enter the competition for the Gold Medal of Międzynarodowe Targi Poznańskie. However, only the ones that meet the statutory criteria and obtain positive recommendations of the professional jury will receive this prestigious award. The jury, which is a team of experts consisting of eminent specialists representing adequate areas of economic life, looks for modern, innovative products, manufactured basing upon top class technologies. The MTP Gold Medal is thus a confirmation of product excellence and, consequently, an element of its promotion in the market.

NOTE! The MTP Gold Medal competition application form is available in the Exhibitor's Zone

The verdict of the Jury and the granting of Gold Medals to the winning products are followed by the next stage of the competition. Since the beginning of 2012, the representatives of the industry and consumers, in a separate competition called "Gold Medal – Consumers' Choice", cast their votes for the best product at the fair.
