With celebrating 10 years of European Bridal Week, we have been bringing back the EBW Awards to Essen, Germany. What a fantastic Sunday night this had been in the Colosseum Theater Essen, honouring the bridal and fashion industry with all the passion we share for the industry of ours.

...

The EBW Awards are a spectacular and shining evening event, a glorious opportunity of celebrating the joy of fashion and style with your colleagues from all sectors of the industry, including retailers, suppliers, designers and the media.



THE AWARDS NIGHT | HONOURING THE INDUSTRY

With European Bridal Week celebrating “10 in 2024”, we are delighted to bring back the EBW AWARDS to Essen, Germany, being the true hub of bridal with Messe Essen hosting the longest running bridal fashion event in Germany.

The EBW Awards programme, hosted this year by the high-flying Italian presenter Pietro Polidori, assisted by the “face of European Bridal Week 2024” COCO, is a demonstration of enthusiasm, pride, and that all-important ethos of making a difference.

Honouring the bridal and fashion industry as a whole with all the passion we share for the industry of ours, this is not only an opportunity to celebrate the success of all the finalists and winners, but also to network with about 500 guests out of the industry from around the globe.

...



FANTASTIC FINALISTS

Nothing benefits a business more than being recognised by the industry it operates in as the leader in its sector. And in bridal there is the additional plus when the end customer is aware that their chosen retailer has something very special to offer... brands that are proven winners.

Being a finalist in a key awards programme shows the belief that others have in a supplier's ability to set the trends and deliver quality and style that sets them apart; making it to that last stage is a true achievement and certainly something to celebrate. It shows that particular design houses are special... and different.


Congratulations to the 2024 EBW Awards finalists.

THE 2024 WINNERS

A key ingredient in the European Bridal Week success story has to be the industry awards that recognise outstanding businesses.

At a glamorous event held at Essen's “Colosseum Theater” on Sunday 14 April, the second day EBW 2024, many hundreds of guests – exhibitors and show visitors as well as local dignitaries, including the Mayor of Essen, Rudolf Jelinek, who presented influencer Kennedy Bingham with the inaugural Trailblazer Award – celebrated in style.

In addition, the 2024 programme presented one bridal enthusiast with a lifetime achievement award recognising his contribution to the growth of the industry. Our congratulations go to Larry Warshaw.

THE EBW AWARDS

It is so important that at times we get recognised for all our hard work and endeavours and the EBW Awards is a platform designed to recognise those bridal businesses from around the world that have excelled and/or exceeded a store’s or a stockist's expectation.

All exhibiting companies at European Bridal Week have the chance to become an EBW Awards winner; this makes each and every brand a nominee for this very special accolade.

What makes the EBW Awards programme score points over others is that retailers themselves have cast their votes, only one per award category, and collectively made the decision as to which suppliers among the 500 exhibiting labels at the show, are most deserving of that coveted title.
