Global Can Supplier Awards

Taking place on the second evening of CanTech The Grand Tour 2019,  the Global Can Supplier Awards will celebrate excellence within the can making industry. For the first time, suppliers in the industry will also be recognised, as well as the existing Can Awards, which will take place as normal, which is open to all can manufacturers globally.

This means that the Awards will offer everyone within the can making business a chance to shine, from the can makers through to the suppliers. The highlight of the evening will be the Supplier Innovation Awards, a prestigious accolade for the companies deemed to have the most innovative product/equipment within the industry.

There will be three supplier innovations presented: Bronze, Silver and Gold awards.

How it works – voting by the industry, for the industry     

Each supplier is allowed to nominate a maximum of two supplier innovations into the awards. Suppliers have until 14 December to nominate their product innovations, along with a 200-word description on why their entry is a deserving winner. This can be done by emailing

Unlike other metal packaging events, people within the industry will have the opportunity to vote for their preferred supplier innovation, via the Grand Tour website. This means that the Global Can Supplier Awards are truly independent, and voted for by their industry colleagues and peers. To ensure neutrality, only one vote, per person and multiple votes from one person or excessive votes from one company (50+) will be discounted.

Voting for the Awards is open until 22 February 2019, and after that, a shortlist will be announced, who will go forward to the night where the Bronze, Silver and Gold winners will be announced.
