Retail Gazette’s inaugural awards, The Game Changers, recognises the retailers that are paving the way for the rest.

Retail is changing fast and while some retailers struggle to find their place, others are taking big bets on what the future of shopping looks like, giving customers a knockout experience, and creating new ways to grow. These awards are for them.

We’re laying on a party to celebrate the success of these game-changing businesses, which will be free to attend for all shortlisted firms. 

Expect fun, entertainment, and games aplenty – so grab a beer and get to know the people who are changing the face of retail.

Who can enter?

We want to recognise and celebrate inspiring retail businesses and their teams who are driving the industry forward.
