About the Award; The Automotive Brand Contest is the only international design competition in the automotive sector and has developed in a very short time to become an important industry event. The Brand Contest provides companies in the automotive industry, their partners in the supply industry, in design and brand communication a high-profile platform to compare themselves internationally with their performance and position. A competition with such diverse design aspects requires an internationally compiled, independent jury of experts, which is composed of representatives of the media, design, brand communications and the universities.
"On behalf of the hard work of the entire Sika team we are thrilled that the jury honored our program in this competition," said Greg Moran, Head Global Marketing, Sika Automotive. "The message of the program is simple; Start with Sika to help to build better vehicles."
The ceremonial handover of the award took place on September 15th during the press days of the IAA 2015 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. In 2015 Sika was also a proud recipient of the Automotive News PACE award for innovation, recognizing and awarding SikaflexÂ® UHM technology in use for bonding mixed material on the BMW i3, and received at the same time a Collaboration award with BMW for exemplary cooperation in Innovation.
