Best Use of In-store Tech

Technology has become a huge part of the retail industry, from online shopping to graphic displays, consumers have come to expect technology to be involved while they shop. The Best Use of In-store Technology Awards praises those who are transforming tomorrow’s shopping experience to include spectacular tech visuals — whether that’s AR, VR, AI or any other form of interesting technology.


Best Shopping Destination

Retail experiences are multi-faceted. It's not just about price or position; it's about helping to create an emotional reaction that inspires visitors to become customers. With this award we really want to reward the councils, BIDs, shopping centres and high streets that put time and energy into creating an excellent shopping experience for their customers.

The consumer mindset is one that can get bored pretty easily, so brands and businesses need to innovate constantly.

This Award goes to the brave pioneers who have been pushing the boundaries of bricks and mortar retails with their ideas and actions.


The Outstanding Contribution to Retail Award
