About the competition and the award rounds

The Best Retail Cases database brings together the diverse solutions currently used by the retail sector. In order to highlight the best among them, the Best Retail Cases Awards are presented regularly. An expert jury and the users – the retailers themselves – select their favourites. The best-placed cases benefit from significantly increased attention, among other things through special seals that can be incorporated into marketing measures and are directly integrated into the case presentation.

Media Jury Members

Jury awards


A jury of experts from the retail world will select the best cases independently of the user voting. It consists primarily of representatives from various media houses and closely examines the submitted retail cases in order to evaluate them according to benefits for end customers and retailers, functionality and innovation.

Users vote


Under the motto “Give me YOUR vote”, voting takes place for the users (retailers). Within six weeks, every vote from the case submitters will be fought for via the press, social and online channels. Prizes for the voters will fuel the mood for participation. Join in and take advantage of the media and user interest. Cases that do not move a large community prove themselves to the jury in any case.

Through co-partnerships with GFM News and the supporting media, the best cases will be published on their various channels in print and online. A media budget will be distributed among all winners. The partner media will report on the winners and a winning press release will be sent out.

In addition, the winners receive our coveted seal, which particularly distinguishes the respective cases.

How do I draw attention to my case?

Also use your channels to cheer on the voting for your case. In addition, you can purchase media services from our partners at a reduced price or book additional ad-ons during the user voting. This way, the attention on the submitted case can be significantly increased.
