Speakap wins Best Retail Innovation Award 2017
Speakap’s platform won the juried award for Best Retail Innovation 2017 on Thursday March 9, 2017. The prize was awarded by Wereldhave, ABN AMRO and Q&A during the Retail Outlook Event in Amersfoort.
Speakap had to pitch against Count3r and 3DAboutme. The jury members were divided, with a small preference in favor of Count3r. Their opinion counted for 50 percent towards determining the prize winner. Event visitors’ votes counted for the remaining 50 percent of votes. Despite Count3r’s lead, Speakap was able to win enough votes during its pitch to win the title.

The Best Retail Innovation juried prize is part of the ABN AMRO Retailer of the Year concept and is an award that stimulates innovation in the Dutch retail sector. Independent jury members based their decisions about the previously submitted innovations on six criteria, including innovative ability and applicability, which resulted in three nominees. During the event the audience members, along with the jury, chose the final winner.
