“Menasha is honored to receive the Temporary Display of the Year and Most Creative Temporary Display, in addition to winning 14 OMA Awards from POPAI this year since the awards are among marketing at-retail’s highest recognitions,” said Menasha Packaging director of marketing Jill Andersen. “These achievements exemplify how Menasha goes beyond to create powerful and effective retail promotional solutions that help our consumer packaged goods customers successfully sell, protect and promote their products in stores.”
Menasha competed in a field of 508 entries from 90 competitors. A total of 219 OMA Awards were presented.
Displays compete for gold, silver and bronze honors in three divisions based upon length of time in the store: temporary, semi-permanent and permanent.
Entries are evaluated on the display’s ability to increase sales, obtain retail placements and work strategically to position the brand at the point of sale.
Awards are presented to the most innovative and effective in-store and at-retail displays. All gold winners are eligible for the “Display of the Year,” which represents the highest recognition the industry can bestow upon an at-retail display.
The winners were announced on March 25, 2015 at POPAI’s OMA Awards Celebration during GlobalShop 2015, which is the world’s largest annual trade show and conference dedicated to store design, visual merchandising and shopper marketing.
