The best in retail and shopper marketing will be on show at POPAI’s 2015 Awards Exhibition on September 8.
POPAI General Manager Lee McClymont said the event is a unique opportunity to see the industry’s finest case studies on show all in one space, for free.
“The POPAI Marketing at Retail Awards are unique,” she said. “What makes them unique is that we offer a physical immersion experience, a place where people can go to get inspired and see what creativity, innovation and effectiveness in retail marketing look like in 2015.”
For the first time, visitors will be able to vote on their favourite entry in the People’s Choice Awards on their smartphones. Links and QR codes will be on Expo signage, with voting as simple as clicking on the heart next to the favoured entry.
Winners of the 2015 Marketing at Retail Awards will be announced at the gala dinner on September 8 at the same venue.
The awards exhibition will take place alongside the 2015 Shopper Summit, which will be held in the conference room next door, where industry leaders will converge on Sydney to share what’s hot in shopper marketing and retail experience.
