Retail Design Expo 2017 to launch Christmas VM Market and Awards



Retail Design Expo has announced the launch of two new major features for its 2017 show in May – the VM Christmas Market and the VM Christmas Awards.

The VM Christmas Market

The VM Christmas Market has been launched in consultation with Retail Design Expo’s steering panel, to meet a demand from event visitors for a showcase of the very best Christmas decorations, displays and props on the market. Displaying both bespoke and off-the-shelf products, the market will provide a focal point for retailers and brands seeking inspiration for their Christmas displays.

Housed in its own designated area, and with a distinct look of its own, The VM Christmas Market is already attracting attention from new exhibitors.

The VM Christmas Awards

The second new initiative is the VM Christmas Awards, which will celebrate the very best in seasonal VM displays, interiors and windows, with all displays from Christmas 2016 eligible for entry. An independent judging panel of top retail and creative talent will select the shortlist and winners. Work from the full shortlist will be displayed throughout Retail Design Expo and a glittering awards ceremony announcing the winners will be held on the second day of the show.

The dates for Retail Design Expo 2017 are May 8th & 9th. For more information visit
