Submissions are now open for stores and employees to nominate for the 2016 eftpos Australian Retailers Association (ARA) Australian Retail Awards.
To be held on August 10 in Melbourne, the ARA Australian Retail Awards have celebrated leading retailers for more than 40 years and are Australia’s first and largest national retail awards.
The awards span a range of retail categories, from small owner operators through to multi-channel retailers, industry innovators and outstanding store fitouts, celebrating the breadth of talent and achievement in the ever changing retail landscape.
For the third consecutive year, eftpos will support the event as a major sponsor. Mr Bruce Mansfield, eftpos managing director, said; “Eftpos CHQ and SAV has supported everyday payments at Australian retailers for the past three decades and we are proud to sponsor these prestigious awards to honour the hard working men and women who serve their customers every day.”
“Retail plays a vital role in the daily lives of all Australians and it’s important that we recognise the industry’s contribution through these awards,” Mr Mansfield said.
ARA executive director, Russell Zimmerman, anticipates the event to be the biggest and best awards event to date.
“The ARA Awards represent a national platform to showcase the best of the industry, recognising the extraordinary and innovative work of those moving retail forward. The Awards Breakfast is an opportunity for retailers to share their inspiring retail success stories, and gain industry insights from esteemed guest speakers and valuable sponsors.
“Retailing is an exceptionally important industry for the Australian economy – driven by hardworking individuals and businesses – and the ARA is proud to acknowledge these deserving retailers.”
