Hannover. Since 2012, the Parkett Magazin, Europe's major trade magazine for wood, cork, laminate and design flooring published by Hamburg-based SN-Verlag, recognizes the best in the industry with the Parkett Star . The prestigious award is a pro-parquet initiative involving trade, commerce and industry alike. An independent jury consisting of representatives from the industry and trade collaborations selected the Parkett Star 2023 winners. Applications from all over Germany and Austria were submitted to Parkett Magazin.

Winners are innovative and committed

The companies and personalities awarded with the Parkett Star are known within the industry as extraordinary examples of innovative ideas and concepts as well as their considerate business practices. "This year's winners are also outstanding for their great commitment to successful parquet marketing," reveals Claudia Weidt, Editor-in-Chief of Parkett Magazin.

Fifteen awards in eleven categories will be awarded to excellent retailers and craftsmen as well as to a prominent figure from the parquet industry – including a special prize and an honorary prize. The award categories include the best parquet presentations in trade and crafts, the best start-ups, succession regulations and creative digital marketing.
