It's time to pivot to celebrate excellence

For the second year running, the National Retail Awards will be streamed to you live on a Friday afternoon. While COVID-19 might have thrown our plans for a Gold Coast Gala out the door, the National Retail Association is proud to announce that the show will still go on.

The FREE virtual format will feature presenters, winners and special keynote speakers, all available to stream from the comfort of your own home.

COVID-19 has shown that retail is essential, and everyone who works in this industry should be celebrated. So get your applications started and prepare to register for the virtual gala event of the year!

Date: Friday 27 August 2021

Time: 2:00pm - 4:00pm

The Awards are quickly approaching!

Make sure you register for the streaming link! Counting down the days until the awards...
