Anyone can nominate a retail or DTC company for an award, including retail companies, public relations representatives, solution provider partners, industry experts, and more.
The winners will be announced during retailX at McCormick Place in Chicago, August 24-25. Finalists may be alerted early, to help accommodate travel plans.
In addition to being presented with the award live at the retailX event, winners will be spotlighted in coverage on the Retail TouchPoints site, as well as the retailX site. Social posts also will feature winners, via LinkedIn, Twitter and other social media channels.
It is not a requirement, but we strongly request/suggest that an executive (preferably Director-level or above) attends to accept the award during retailX, August 24-25.
