The awards highlight the newest and most innovative products in the tea industry and put them front and center at the expo taking place June 12-14 in Las Vegas.

First, your product is put forth in front of countless potential buyers in the global tea trade, and secondly winning an award adds invaluable promotional value and status to any marketing platform for many years to come,” said Brian Keating, founder of tea industry consultancy Sage Group and World Tea Expo adviser. “For a nominal few extra dollars new products meeting the contest criteria are highlighted at World Tea Expo in Las Vegas within the new products showcases and receive highly leverageable publicity for their products.”
