Nominations Begin for Industry Retailer Awards
Vote for the Next Round of ‘Rising Star’ Finalists
March 1, 2010

Excellence and innovation at retail do not come easily. There are no shortcuts, no magic buttons. Recognizing excellence and innovation is a little easier...thanks to the annual Sports Licensing and Tailgate Rising Star Retailer Awards. In fact, nominating outstanding retailers in the Sports Licensing and Tailgate industries now has a “magic button.”

The Rising Star Retailer Award recognizes the achievements of one retailer or individual in each state—in the Sports Licensed and Tailgate arena—for their progressive approach to marketing, merchandising and customer service.

Your vote will be added to those of thousands of your industry peers, which will produce a list of Rising Star nominees** for each of the 50 states. Final voting will begin in the fall, with the winners receiving an all-expenses-paid trip to be honored at the 2011 Sports Licensing and Tailgate Show in Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay next January.

“The winners embody the spirit of innovation that makes the business of sports great,” says 2010 awards presenter Jack Smith, founder of The Sports Authority. “Each of our Rising Stars serves as beacon for those seeking creative ways to connect with customers and stand out in a crowd.”

“It was an honor to be recognized for this award and represent Arkansas,” says [past winner] Robert Mann, University of Arkansas Razorback Athletics. “I came away from this show with lots of wonderful ideas, new partnerships and products that will give me a HUGE advantage as a retailer next fall.”
