International Furniture Leadership Awards 2022 (FLA International), the 7th edition of the business awards for the global furniture industry, is now open for nomination.

Held annually to celebrate excellence in the global furniture and related industries, FLA International honours exceptional companies that are well-run and individuals that display outstanding leadership. The programme is open to furniture retailers, manufacturers, traders, interior designers, interior fit-out companies, machinery and material suppliers, industry associations, and fair organisers worldwide.

The 2022 award categories are:

  • Brand Excellence Award
  • Product Excellence Award
  • Rising Star Award
  • Outstanding Company Award
  • Outstanding Leader Award
  • Outstanding Young Leader Award
  • Outstanding Woman Leader

Nominees are evaluated via a comprehensive and scientific assessment system developed by a renowned professor of business management. The foundation criteria include considerations of each nominee/company’s leadership and strategies, marketing and branding, human capital and management, business process and execution capabilities, and finance and wealth management.

Similar to the 2021 edition, FLA International 2022 will continue to take into account the additional challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. While companies that continue to excel will stand out, the judging panel comprising industry authorities, management strategists and renowned academics will also be looking out for companies that demonstrate resilience and sustainability, the fundamental tenets of the programme, especially in view of the current difficult circumstances the world is now facing.

Winning companies gain an opportunity to communicate clearly their strengths and successes to stakeholders such as shareholders, employees, business partners, customers and prospects. On top of that, award recipients are entitled to complimentary membership to the Global Leaders Network, a high-level community of all past award winners. The opportunity to network with other top international companies in various segments of the industry and an enhanced chance to do deals are invaluable.

In addition to joining the ranks of the industry’s best, award winners will enjoy tremendous amount of publicity via our partner-platforms worldwide, through the official website, commemorative book, social media and promotion at CIFF fairs.

To date, the 2022 edition of FLA International has secured the support of 21 strategic partners worldwide to jointly promote the programme and identify suitable candidates. These partners include leading industry media, apex industry associations and top trade fairs.
