Bathroom manufacturer Vitra will once again sponsor the Bathroom Showroom of the Year category at the kbbreview Retail & Design Awards 2020.
As a long-term supporter of the event, Vitra’s marketing manager, Margaret Talbot, sees real value in partnering with kbbreview and the awards: “The kbbreview Retail & Design Awards are an important acknowledgement of excellence in all categories. Taking part and submitting entries is valuable as it supports the best design and recognition of achievement.
“An awards event like this provides a positive platform for retailers and their design teams to showcase their entries, the achievement of a significant nomination and of course the celebration of a category win where secured.
“The Vitra brand is synonymous with design excellence, with a long history of working with internationally renowned designers like Sebastian Conran, Terri Pecora, and Claudio Bellini. Our own in-house team, working in the Vitra custom-built Innovation Centre, have long been advocates for the best of design, so this award is a perfect fit.”
The showroom categories will be judged against set criteria by a retail judging panel. The criteria will include ‘effective use of available space’, ‘customer journey’ and ‘unique ideas and initiative’.
“An award-winning showroom is one that is both inviting and inspiring. Whole-bathroom settings that explore both the practical and luxurious with the support and guidance of a knowledgeable design team are key,” Talbot said.
The kbbreview Retail & Design Awards will take place on Monday March 2, 2020 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel. Nominations across all categories are now open.
