The 2016 PSI Show, held in Düsseldorf, Germany January 13-15, marked the introduction of the People’s Choice Award, in which show attendees cast their votes for the most compelling and marketable products introduced in the PSI FIRST product introduction showcase. The showcase featured 50 products all premiering at the 2016 PSI Show.

The 2016 People’s Choice Award winners are:


First Place: The fixxo universal car phone mount by BEMAG Sascha Behrendt /fixxo Germany. The holder features an innovative clamp that makes it easy to attach the mount to vent grates or fins, allowing the manufacturer to do away with suction cups and elaborate installation. The product can also accept smartphones of varying sizes due to an expandable side piece, two integrated tension springs and two rubberized grips.


Second Place: The concrete power bank by Vim Solution GmbH. Vim Solution’s powerbank chose to encase its powerbank in concrete to enhance its “wow factor.”


Third place: Suncard, sunglasses in a postcard by PLAYGRND Labs / Menzel GbR. The “do-it-yourself” sunglasses kit drew attendees’ attention with the new form and opportunities it gave the product. Built into a postcard, the Suncard is both a promotional product and a direct mail piece.
