Two competitions, two nights of design,
The Four Seasons Ballroom in Las Vegas will play host to both the A.R.E. Design Awards on March 23 and the POPAI
OMA Awards on March 24. The dual celebrations will draw retailers, brands, designers, suppliers, and members of
A.R.E. | POPAI The New Association for two evenings of networking and peer recognition during GlobalShop 2016.
A.R.E. Design Awards
The A.R.E. Design Awards celebration will launch with a
networking cocktail hour and then roll into a ceremony that
recognizes the top entries in more than 15 design categories.
Emceed by Las Vegas personality Madison Alexander, the
evening will see awards go to the game-changing designs from
2015 that elevate a store, show off a new concept, reinvent a
brand, and more. From grocery stores and restaurants to
department stores and popup shops, more than 50 entries will
be recognized for design excellence overall as well as for specific
retail elements including store
fixtures, flooring, wall treatments,
and sustainability. The evening will
conclude with the unveiling of The
Store of the Year, which will grace the
April cover of Retail Environments.
Copies of the Retail Environments
Winners Book will be available onsite
after the ceremony and at A.R.E. |
POPAI booths at GlobalShop.
