Nominate retailers for Internet Retailing Awards

Internet Retailing Awards lgThe Internet Retailing Awards aim to seek out and recognise achievement by today’s leading, admired and emulated multichannel retailers. The retail world is now invited to apply for the leading awards in the e-commerce and multichannel calendar – Internet Retailing Awards 2013 – using Twitter and Vine technology.

Judged by the leading names in the business, including House of Fraser’s Executive Director of Multi-Channel, Vice President of UK Trading at eBay and the Multichannel Director of Selfridges, there are ten categories to the awards, covering innovation, multichannel, m-retailing, internet retailing in store (IRIS), the customer and internationalisation.

Whilst retailers can nominate using an online form, non-retailers can nominate their choice of retailers by recording a Vine video of themselves, before posting it to Twitter, completing the following sentence:

[Impressive retailer of your choosing] should win [the XAward] because…” — then tweet it to @etail on Twitter with the hashtag #theawards with the best Vines being published on

Taking place on the 26th of June at SUSHISAMBA on the 39th floor of the Heron Tower, London and sponsored by Venda, the top names in retail will celebrate the success of the sector at a lavish evening ceremony.

The world of digital retail is ever changing. Our Awards take into account the multichannel, multinational, multi-faceted achievements of retailers who’re connecting most successfully with the digital customer
– Mark Pigou, Internet Retailing Awards Director



Vine technology is Twitter’s new way of sharing short (6 second) looped videos online. It’s no surprise to see Internet Retailing using the latest technology, but sadly Vines are limited and only available for the second best selling mobile devices (Apple iPhone and iPod) but not currently for top selling Android smartphones. However they are aiming to bring it to more platforms in the near future, we’re looking forward to trying out Vines on Android.

    Hate to point out the obvious, but if UK Mail intend to deliver a parcel on Tuesday they must know who they picked it up from, so ask them to name the sender, explaining that it is their rules that instructions need to come from the sender, and that you need to contact the sender to re-arrange the delivery.

      I would have phoned UK Mail, but they don’t have a consumer telephone number! Doh! Stupid company!

      Tell them what you think! But not til Monday!
