The deadline for entries for The Drapers Footwear Awards 2009 has been extended by one week to March 18.
The Drapers Footwear Awards, sponsored by Gore, celebrate the best of the UK’s footwear companies and recognise the créme de la créme of footwear brands, footwear independents, footwear specialists and high street chains with a footwear offer.
This year, in addition to judging the entries we receive for the awards, Drapers will be nominating some of the outstanding businesses in this sector.
Entering and winning a Drapers Footwear Awards in what has been a challenging year for the sector could be hugely beneficial to your business. The awards are a useful marketing tool as well as being a great way to motivate and incentivise your staff and celebrate their successes over the last year. Plus there are plenty of businesses out there that are bucking the trend and deserve to shout about it.
Willie Fletcher of headline sponsor Gore said: “During these exceptionally challenging times the Drapers Footwear Awards not only celebrate and recognise the success stories to inspire but is a tremendous opportunity to come together as the UK footwear industry - to network and have a great time together. Gore is proud to work along side Drapers, our fellow sponsors and all the attendees.”
The Drapers Footwear Awards 2009 will be presented at a glittering black tie dinner to be held at The London Hilton hotel on Thursday May 7.
