The Creative Retail Awards 2020 are now open for entries, with four new categories debuting this year.
The Awards recognise projects and products that have demonstrated the very highest level of innovation and excellence within retail.
The 2020 Awards will introduce new categories including Omni-Channel Experience, Bar and Restaurant Design and Best Shopfitting/Fit-Out. There is also a new category specifically for retailers to vote for their favourite suppliers – the Supplier of the Year Award.
Three major industry associations are now championing the Awards: the Shop & Display Equipment Association (SDEA), National Association of Shopfitters and Interior Contractors (NAS) and the British Display Society (BDS) – who all want to encourage the very best the industry has to offer.
“Now is the time to promote your company and be recognised for your hard work to a worldwide audience,” read a statement. “Winning an Award puts you centre stage with the world’s most visionary and influential retailers and designers, including Chanel, Vodafone, Topshop, Joseph and Pandora amongst others.”
To celebrate the launch and the backing of the Trade Associations, an early bird entry fee for suppliers of just £75 (+VAT) is available for entries made before the end of December. It is free for retailers and hospitality and leisure operators to enter into the Awards.
