INTERGASTRA, the "Allgemeine Hotel- und Gastronomie-Zeitung" (newspaper covering the hotel and restaurant industry) and DEHOGA Baden-Württemberg make use of the INNOVATION PRIZE to award seminal ideas in the restaurant and hotel industry. The high-calibre panel of expert independent judges makes the prize one of the biggest international awards. The INNOVATION PRIZE was an additional highlight at INTERGASTRA 2018, substantiating its claim to be a leading trade fair on the international stage.

There are winners in the following sectors: kitchen technology, design, food & beverage, object and facility management, sustainability and productivity, as well as sales promotion. The judging panel takes account of various criteria, including: degree of innovation and importance for practical application, economically justifiable expense in use and implementation, design, functionality and user-friendliness.
