We’ve known for years that Buzz Products was the cool kid on the block and in 2015 it’s been made official. Buzz Products is the winner of the first-ever APEX EXPO Cool Award. The APEX EXPO Cool Award was created to recognize the innovative APEX spirit showcased each year at the EXPO. Delegates and exhibitors combed the showroom looking for innovative, trend-setting and all-round cool booths and products. Focused on creativity, great design and new technologies, Buzz Products impressed fellow exhibitors with their cutting-edge and ‘cool’ amenity offerings, skincare, textiles, sleepwear products and warm Aussie welcome.

A highlight of the Buzz Products booth was their authentic PDX carpet. Rumours has it director and founder, Leonard Hamersfeld received the coveted carpet slab from Miss Oregon 2014. The famous carpet appeared in many photos and social posts throughout the conference, inspiring Buzz to open an Instagram account, @buzzproducts.
“The definition of cool has always been about innovation and with the rate that this industry changes it’s an important word.” – Leonard Hamersfeld, Buzz Products
Ranked earlier this year as one of Australia’s Most Innovative Companies, Buzz is shaping the in-flight experience for airlines around the globe. “We are very excited to win this award,” beams Hamersfeld. “The definition of cool has always been about innovation and with the rate that this industry changes it’s an important word. Our whole premise has always been about pushing the limits of the status quo. We work closely with airlines and our partners so it’s fantastic that they’ve voted for us here at EXPO.”
The Buzz formula is working and the company has the Cool Award to prove it, an honour as sought-after as their popular PDX carpet.
