Brand Experience Awards

In the new era of retail, we know that experience is everything. But which retail and direct-to-consumer (DTC) brands are winning customer attention and affection across all stages of the shopping journey? The Brand Experience Awards, presented by RetailX and Retail TouchPoints, were created to spotlight the businesses that are redefining the rules of interaction, engagement and loyalty. They have implemented new tools and strategies in one or several areas of the brand experience, raising the stakes for their competitors and the entire retail industry.

Brand Experience Award winners are implementing new technologies and strategies in one of more of the following areas. Each company/brand can be nominated in up to three (3) categories:

Digital Innovation:
Creating a Cohesive Brand Experience

Pop-Ups, Events, Partnerships & Other Brand Activations

Store Design and Experiential Retail

Marketing Campaigns for the Complete Shopper Journey

Mobile & Social Optimization

Customer Retention
& Loyalty

The Convergence of Content & Commerce

Marketplace Strategies & Technologies

Last Mile & Fulfillment Experiences

Other

We invite you to nominate a retail or direct-to-consumer brand for a Brand Experience award. Winners will be judged based on the following criteria (please be as descriptive as possible in each response):

  • Innovative, successful retail business strategy created, developed or defined.
  • Specific innovative retail technology solution implemented.
  • Cutting-edge campaign or tactic executed.
  • Business results or positive outcomes, or expected results, following a successful implementation of the innovative strategy or solution.

Also please include any additional insights or comments related to the company’s qualifications for receiving a Brand Experience Award.
