JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- Convenience Store News is now accepting entries for its newly relaunched Category Captains awards program. These awards will recognize and honor overall excellence in innovative, creative and profit-generating category management platforms.
This year’s CSNews Category Captains awards program has been redesigned to be more relevant to both c-store retailers and suppliers.
Convenience industry suppliers that provide their retailer customers with category leadership and innovation are eligible to win in 20 different product categories. Entries will be evaluated on such factors as how the supplier supported customers' needs and built sales overall in the category; what new programs, technologies, business systems, merchandising schemes or promotional tactics were employed; and what their retailer partners think of their category management platform.
Suppliers wishing to enter must submit an overview synopsis of 800 words or less about their category leadership, a high-resolution company logo, and a photo of the products or lines offered. Entries will be accepted through April 1.
