Bestway Retail Development Awards logo

All retailers participating in the BRDP can enter into the Bestway Retail Development Awards.

With the knowledge gained from the seminars and trade shows, retailers have a few months to implement changes to their store, applying what they’ve learned to develop and grow their business.

Our panel of expert judges will select the winning stores who have made the best progress in their store across a number of categories.

Awards event

The highlight of the programme is the prestigious awards ceremony and evening dinner held in London where the winners receive their awards and get a share of the £50,000 prize fund!
