The awards recognize excellence among lighting showrooms and will be handed out in three dollar-volume categories — revenue under $2 million, revenue under $5 million and revenue over $5 million — as well as specialty categories including merchandising display and community involvement. Ten finalists in each of the three dollar-volume categories will be featured in the May issue of Residential Lighting, and the winners will be announced at an opening night reception during the June 2013 Dallas Intl. Lighting Market .
"Lighting showrooms are doing more than ever before to innovate and educate," says Laura Van Zeyl, Publisher and Editorial Director of Residential Lighting. We're proud to partner with the Dallas Market Center once again on a program that recognizes retailers at the top of their game."
For retailers, this is an opportunity to acknowledge the contributions of loyal staff and give your business some well-deserved industry recognition. For vendors and sales representatives, you are welcome to nominate an exceptional customer worthy of public praise. Forms for entering and nominating can be found on the Showroom of the Year  page of the Residential Lighting website. Previous winners and finalists are eligible to enter again. All entries are due Feb. 28, 2013.
