This year’s Modern Retail Awards will honor the retailers that survived and thrived in 2020 by doubling down on customer-focused experiences, even when it meant swiftly pivoting their campaign and product strategies to accommodate new shopping behaviors. Some of this year’s shortlisters enjoyed the benefits of digital nativity, while others ventured into the digital wilds with newfound courage.
Over the course of this year, some businesses did more than survive -- they thrived and grew, all while protecting their employees’ health and giving back to the world. This year’s Resilience Awards -- distributed across the Digiday, Glossy and Modern Retail brands -- honor the businesses, teams and leaders that kept their focus on the bigger picture in 2020. In the process, they ensured that one of the most painful moments in world history would not merely stand as a year lost, but as an opportunity to focus on what really mattered -- and to prepare for a brighter future in which health and charity come first.
In an era upended by pandemic and recession, companies of all stripes have scrambled to survive, let alone innovate and scale. Nonetheless, some media, marketing, fashion, beauty and retail players have continued to succeed in the face of daunting odds.
