Champaigne Party

The biggest night in retail is so soon we can practically smell it. The NRA Events team are gearing up for the National Retail Awards on the evening of September 27! The night promises to be a spectacular presentation of the highest accolades in retail.

The NRA extends our sincerest gratitude to our generous sponsors, who helped make the Retail Awards possible:

REST Industry Super, American Express, Scentre Group, NewsCorp, NewsXtend, Shopping Centre Council Australia, Retail Doctor Group, Flight Centre, NORA, Inside Retail, New Retail Revolution, MarketMap


On behalf of the NRA, we would like to thank every single entrant to this year’s National Retail Awards.

Each year, the judges are blown away by the achievements and commitments of each retailer. The judging process was thorough and extensive, consisting of multiple judging rounds and cross checks. Entrants for the Category, Individual and Champion awards were required to submit an online portfolio detailing their achievements. The submissions were firstly marked by one  individual industry professional, then cross checked by another. The two scores were averaged to give us the final score. The judging process was similar for the Young Retailers, however they were required to submit their resume and cover letter, a business improvement plan and go through a series of one-on-one Skype interviews.

All of our entrants have worked extremely hard for these Awards, and we wish we could crown them all as winners. To see the full list of Finalists, visit the National Retail Awards website.
