Awards and events season provides food for thought

It’s been a hectic few months in retail as the event season reached its peak – and the first of the awards are handed out. We’ve been out and about at most of the major events this year and have also been lucky enough to see some of our clients shortlisted for some of the sector’s most prestigious awards. Here’s a quick rundown of where we’ve been, what we’ve seen and – fingers crossed – the winning teams!

What’s coming up?


ECMOD Direct Commerce Awards, 4 June, London

The long awaited list of great businesses that have made it through to the finals of the annual ECMOD Direct Commerce Awards has been released and we’re proud to announce we’re up for an award with Great Little Trading Co.  Find out more here>


Retail Week Tech & Ecomm Awards, 15 June, London

Bringing together the two major strands of modern retailing – technology and e-commerce – the new Retail Week awards promises to be a very exciting night. We’ve been shortlisted with clients in two categories at the awards. So we’ll have our fingers crossed for Primark in the Payment Project of the Year category for its P2PE rollout and for Cath Kidston in the Digital Marketing Campaign of the Year section for its Christmas Shop.

Our annual summit is moving to the capital this year as we go Back to Reality and investigate digital customers and the store experience.
