Hall of Fame Awards to celebrate gift card industry achievements and innovation




Hall of Fame Awards to celebrate gift card industry achievements and innovation

The UK Gift Card and Voucher Association(UKGCVA) has announced the return of its annual Hall of Fame Awards. Now in their third year, the awards celebrate the gift card-related successes, achievements and innovation of the UKGCVA’s members, which span the retail, leisure, incentives and payments sectors. 

Taking place at 30 Euston Square on 12th September 2019, the event will welcome more than 150 attendees to a drinks reception, awards ceremony and celebratory party. 

The awards follow the recent release of the UKGCVA’s biennial ‘State of the Nation’ report, sponsored by First Data, which highlighted the high demand for gift cards amongst consumers. The survey of 2,000 consumers found that 84% have purchased a gift card at somepoint in their lifetime, and of those that have, 87% are purchasing gift cards at least once a year. This highlights the importance of an effective gift card strategy when it comes to customer satisfaction.

Following the popularity of the two previous annual awards, two additional categories have been added this year, bringing the total number to 10. The categories are designed to highlight the creativity, depth and breadth of applicants’ products and services, and include ‘Best UK Creative Marketing Campaign’, ‘Most Innovative Technology Product’ and ‘Industry Service Provider of the Year’.

The deadline for all entries is midnight on 31st July 2019. While the awards are limited to UKGCVA members, any organisation that becomes a member ahead of the deadline may submit an entry. Each submission will be judged by a panel comprising a selection of UKGCVA members and its Executive team. 

Gail Cohen, director general of the UKGCVA, commented: “These awards are a fantastic chance for industry leaders to showcase their most innovative products and services from the last year. Not only that, but it’s an unrivalled opportunity to network and draw inspiration for future products and campaigns amongst some of the UK’s most forward-thinking organisations.”

The awards are sponsored by SVS (Stored Value Solutions), the leading global provider of gift cards and stored value services. Sarah Poynter, VP of Account Services for SVS, commented: “The UKGCVA does a fantastic job raising awareness of the integral role gift cards play in a wide variety of sectors. The Hall of Fame Awards are a great way to celebrate the positive impact that gift card programmes have had on UK business in the past year, and we are delighted to be involved in this year’s event.”
