2020 Journey Retail Awards: Winners introduced

0

TRBusiness is delighted to announce the winners in the third edition of the consumer-voted Travel Retail Awards, in association with m1nd-set. [Scroll below to view the full list of winners].

In a live virtual ceremony hosted today (29 September) during TRMarketplace, the travel retail industry’s first digital networking forum, TRBusiness revealed the much-anticipated accolades based on inimitable feedback from a panel of consumer bloggers and vloggers and expert insight from thousands of international travellers independently sourced from m1nd-set’s unique database.

Now in its third year, the consumer-voted Travel Retail Awards continues to deliver tangible value for entrants and supporters, providing a hallmark of trust and confidence in the products and services offered to – and voted by – consumers.

In traditional fashion, m1nd-set’s research accounted for 70% of the total scores, with blogger and vlogger feedback making up the remaining 30%.

NEW CATEGORIES

As reported yesterday, TRBusiness is continuing with its powerful show of industry support for sustainability causes by announcing that its print magazines (with the exception of trade show issues) will go fully digital from January 2021 .

In the spirit of encouraging greater environmental action, TRBusiness was delighted to introduce the Best Green Initiative at an Airport award and two others to the compelling awards lineup: Best F&B Offer at an Airport and Best Retail Environment Onboard a Cruise Ship.

The winner of the Best Green Initiative at an Airport walks away with an environmentally friendly trophy, plus the opportunity to nominate an environmental charity of choice to receive a donation, courtesy of Distell International.

The FEE Litter Less Campaign educates children and youth on the issue of litter.

THE FOUNDATION FOR ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION

In addition to the awards, TRBusiness once again hosted a charity raffle draw that took place after the main ceremony. More on that to follow…

This year, TRBusiness has partnered with Travel Retail Awards Platinum Sponsor Mars Wrigley to raise funds for global environmental organisation the Foundation for Environmental Education and its ‘Litter Less Campaign’ in New Delhi.

For a ticket purchase of just £25 (or five tickets for £100), entrants to the raffle were given the chance to win one of a series of high-value prizes generously donated by Travel Retail Awards and TRMarketplace partners.

These included a £230 Torgoen T10 wrist watch from E. Gluck Corporation; limited edition Iconics Porsche Design Sunglasses worth £420 from Rodenstock; a circa $2,100 bottle of Bowmore Single Malt Scotch Whisky Mizunara Cask Finish courtesy of Beam Suntory; S$500 in cash courtesy of Singapore Changi Airport; and chances to win a ticket for entry into the Dubai Duty Free Millennium Millionaire Draw (for a full list of the prizes and more information on the charity raffle, click here).

Janice Hook and Nigel Hardy, Joint Managing Directors and Co-owners, TRBusiness.

Janice Hook and Nigel Hardy, Joint Managing Directors and Co-owners, TRBusiness said: “The concept behind The Travel Retail Awards was to provide the industry with a totally unbiased judging panel that involved the very people that our industry ultimately serves, the end consumer.

“Five thousand consumers from the database of leading research company m1nd-set plus a panel of recognised international travelling bloggers and vloggers have voted for the best product in each major category and provided an interesting list of finalists that scored above a threshold set by m1nd-set for each category.

“Research by m1nd-set shows that consumers are 22% more likely to purchase a product displaying a label that says ‘Finalist – Voted by Shoppers’ and 31% are more likely to purchase a product with a label that says ‘Winner – Voted by Shoppers’.

“With this in mind, and with our industry needing every piece of help that it can get in driving sales forward,  we are personally urging all key stakeholder to optimise the opportunity of promoting  winning and finalist products, to the returning consumers. We hope that you will agree that this is an extraordinary opportunity to show potential customers that you are providing them with products that real consumers actually want to buy.”

Peter Mohn, CEO, m1nd-set added: “We at m1nd-set are proud to contribute by improving the industry’s performance by making the voice of the customers heard through sophisticated, objective and representative research in partnership with TRBusiness.

“The feedback we received this each year is overwhelmingly positive by all industry players, especially because it is non-biased and reflecting the real needs and wishes of travellers.”
