Open for Entries: Nov. 25, 2019
Early bird Deadline: February 14, 2020

The Shop! Awards Celebration recognizes the best new designs in retail environments and experiences. Considered by many as the “Academy Awards” of the retail design and brand marketing industries, Shop! celebrates three award programs, each celebrating a different area of design expertise.

This year’s celebration has been reinvented into a format that is fast-paced, energetic and condensed. While all entries will be displayed prominently at the show floor entrance with special recognition for finalists, the evening will recognize the top awards recipients only. With a cocktail in your hand raise a toast to the most talented and celebrated in our industry.
