The Data Behind the Awards

So, how does power Retail decide who shall win these prestigious awards?

Power Retail is proud to be home to extensive research and data – its data is unmatched and helps determine the winners of each category. Using Power Retail’s data-driven approach of 2019, there have been additional measures added that take into account multiple aspects of a retailer’s performance.

According to David Fear, the Head of Analytics at Power Retail, this means there are a wider span of retailers that have a chance of grabbing a top industry award for their commitment to online retail.

“In earlier years, Power Retail has used revenue and traffic volumes as the primary measure for ranking the list – however in 2018, we began to recognise additional measures to focus on the overall application of best practice to distinguish the leading online retailers,” Fear explains.

The 2020 All Star Bash will be held on February 20 at Palladium Crown from 6.30 pm until 11.00 pm.

Be a part of the fun and celebrate the best of the best in the e-commerce industry – it will certainly be a night to remember!

Don’t let the fun stop there – continue the festivities at our official afterparty, sponsored by BigCommerce.

Power Retail is excited to see you all there!
