The top 100 best brands in 2019
On 20 February 2019, for the 16th time, the strongest brands of the year will be celebrated with the presentation of the Best Brands Awards at the Bayerischer Hof Hotel in Munich. It has now been determined which out of the huge number of 300 potential Best Brands could make it into the “Top 10” in each category.
Since 2004, the award has been presented in the categories “Best Corporate Brand”, “Best Product Brand” and “Best Growth Brand”, plus a special category that changes every year in which the focus is on one specific industry sector. In 2019, this special category will be “Best Digital Life Brand”. Since 2012, the “Best Corporate Brand” has also been regularly analysed on an international level, which means that this year the “Best German Corporate Brand (International)” will be awarded.
The Best Brands gala in Germany is held each year in February in the ballroom of the Bayerischer Hof Hotel in Munich. More than 600 invited guests from the worlds of business, retail and media attend the event. Former president of the European Commission, José Manuel Barroso, will open the 16th edition of the award ceremony on 20 February 2019. For the third time, the event will be hosted by TV presenter Klaas Heufer-Umlauf.
As of this year, we will now be announcing the “Top 25” nominees of each category prior to the event, which you can see here on the right in alphabetical order. The “Top 10” brands from each category will also be announced here at a later date. The four category winners will be honoured and awarded at the gala on 20 February 2019.
