Your Vote Counts: Rising Stars of Retail
Nominations Rolling In for Vegas Awards
July 24, 2009

This January 50 retailers from 50 states will be honored at the Sports Licensing/Tailgate Rising Star Retailer Awards during the Sports Licensing and Tailgate Show January 20–22, 2010, at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The Rising Star Awards recognizes stores that not only rack up robust sales numbers, but also capture the passion of sports licensing or tailgating in ways that keep their customers coming back for more. Nominations for the awards have begun—the form is simple and quick to complete.

If you know of an exceptional retailer, simply fill in the store’s name and contact info and supply a sentence or two that describes what makes them stand out from the crowd.

Fifty retailers—one in each state—will be flown all-expenses-paid and feted at the show (January 20–22, 2010) as part of an effort to strengthen ties and create vital networking opportunities within the sports licensing and tailgate industry.

“The stars of our industry right now are the retailers that find imaginative ways to tap into the power and passion of sports,” says Show Director Stanley Schwartz.

“From the early nominations we have received, a compelling picture is emerging of what it takes to thrive in a challenging economy—imagination, teamwork, flexibility and what I’d call an X Factor that keeps people coming through the doors” said Brittany Peitsmeyer, Buyer Registration Manager.
