Drapers Footwear Award finalists announced

The companies in the running to pick up a coveted trophy at the Drapers Footwear Awards 2008 are unveiled today.

A record number of entries for the Awards were received this year, making the competition tougher than ever. This year the categories were reformatted to ensure more emphasis was placed on footwear specialists, be they multiples or independents, and that like-for-like businesses were compared.

Several new categories were also introduced including three “gold” awards for Independent Footwear Retailer of the Year, Multiple Footwear Retailer of the Year and Best Footwear Offer in a Fashion Multiple. Ethical Footwear Retailer of the Year was also new for 2008.

A high-profile panel of expert judges will now assess the shortlist and vote for the winners, who will be announced at a gala dinner and ceremony at the London Hilton Hotel, Park Lane on May 8. To book your table click here or call Georgina Drake on 020 7728 5292.
