Join us for lunch in Chicago on June 22 to learn the winners of the 64th annual Outstanding Merchandising Achievement (OMA) Awards. The Shop! OMAs are the Marketing at Retail Industry’s most prestigious, largest and longest-running contest. It honors displays that set the merchandising and design precedents of today to become the standards of tomorrow.
Entries vie for gold, silver and bronze honors in their respective categories and divisions. In addition, all gold winners are eligible for the “Display of the Year,” which represents the highest recognition the industry can bestow upon an at-retail display.
Entrants, clients, Shop! Association members and anyone associated with the industry are welcome to attend an afternoon-long luncheon, awards ceremony, complete with two inspirational and educational sessions 12-5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 22 at City Hall in Chicago. Tickets are $175, and a few full tables are still available. The complete list of winners and a gallery of their winning entries will be posted to shopawards.org the following day.
