“Entries for the annual SACSC Footprint Marketing Awards are now open, and we encourage all retail marketing professionals to enter this widely-recognised and prestigious industry award.” says Amanda Stops, General Manager of the SACSC.
The various categories for the awards include centre productivity, retail productivity, sale promotion and events, public relations, advertising, leasing support, community relations, alternative revenue, category integration, visual merchandising, digital marketing, and grand opening, expansion and/or renovation.
“The entry process is a digital online process which allows for quick, convenient and cost-effective entries.”
Entries for the Footprint Awards close on Thursday 5 August 2010.
Gold, silver and bronze Footprint Award winners will be announced at regional functions held in Gauteng, Western Cape, Eastern Cape and Kwa-Zulu Natal in October this year. The Gold winners of the Footprint Awards will automatically be entered into the 2010 Spectrum Awards.
The Spectrum Awards, which is another SACSC initiative, will be used as a platform for honouring achievements in innovation, creativity, vision and excellence across all disciplines and all sectors within the South African retail industry. In essence, this awards ceremony honours the crème-de-la-crème in the retail industry and can thus be likened to the stature of that of the Hollywood’s Oscar Awards.
A gala event for the Spectrum Awards is to be held in November, where the winner will be announced. The Spectrum Award winner will be recognised Shopping Centre Marketing, in recognition of overall marketing excellence in the industry
