Here are the winners in the Retail Asia Awards 2021

Winners were awarded via digital award presentations on 12-16 July.

The retail industry continues its move forward amidst numerous bankruptcies, uncertainties, and fears surrounding the pandemic. And while the struggles are real, the opportunities for growth are also substantial. As consumers move seamlessly between online and offline experiences during these challenging times, the rise of newer store concepts, customer-centricity, personalised experiences, direct-to-consumer businesses, private labels, and e-commerce-related investments have grown not just in Asia, but also the rest of the world. 

Indeed, when the COVID-19 virus threw its most gruesome lemons at us, the retail industry still managed to make a lemonade stand—and earn a decent profit on the side. 

In recognition of companies that continuously strive to grow their business and provide their customers with unforgettable shopping experiences, the Retail Asia Awards 2021 honoured these enterprises by awarding the 38 winners through digital award presentations on 12-16 July.

These retail champions were also accompanied by virtual interviews as they shared their thoughts about winning the prestigious awards programme. 

This year's entries were judges by an elite panel of judges consisting of Anson Bailey, Head of Technology, Media & Telecoms, Hong Kong and Head of Consumer & Retail ASPAC, KPMG; Olivier Gergele, EY Asean Consumer Products and Retail Leader, EY; Tian Bing Zhang, Asia Pacific Consumer Products and Retail Sector Leader, Deloitte; Uthaya C Ponnusamy Partner, F&B, Retail and Consumer Products, RSM Singapore; Michael Cheng Asia Pacific, Mainland China and Hong Kong Consumer Markets Leader, PwC; and Michelle Evans, Senior Head of Global Digital Consumer Research at Euromonitor International. Singapore Retailers Association (SRA) also took part in the event as one of our supporting partners.

Congratulations to all the winners!
